Apple Sued by 27,000 South Koreans for illegally collecting data from iPhones
According to All Thing D, the group of South Koreans threatening to bring a class action suit against Apple for privacy violations in the country has finally done so.
This morning, some 27,000 South Koreans sued the company, alleging its iPhones illegally collected and stored their location data for a year.
Quarterbacked by attorney Kim Hyung-suk, who won a similar case against Apple last month, the suit seeks one million won (about $936) in damages per class member.
