Korean Apple iPhone user wins lawsuit over location tracking, collects 1 million won payment
Mirae Law, the firm that helped Kim collect his
As we reported back in May, Apple announced that the iOS 4.3.3 update made some changes to software on the iPhone that had collected personal and location information and stored it for up to a year. At the same time, Apple admitted that for certain features on the handset to work, it needs to collect data, but only for 7 days.
Apple could still be on the hook in the States as the U.S. class action suit winds its way through the matrix that we call the U.S. legal system. And unlike Korea, where a million won verdict is paid off with a check and a smile, U.S. courts are notoriously unpredictable when it comes to a case like this.
