Another lawsuit claims Apple iPhone transmits personal data and location information to third parties

Another lawsuit claims Apple iPhone transmits personal data and location information to third parties
A lawsuit filed in the United States District Court for the District of Puerto Rico alleges that the Apple iPhone transmits personal data and location information to third party advertisers. According to The Loop, the suit was filed by Lymaris M. Rivera Diaz, and accuses the Cupertino based firm of, "intentionally intercepting personally identifying information," adding The Weather Channel and Pandora Music as defendants along with Apple. The filing also leaves open the possibility of more defendants being named later. No surprise, the suit seeks monetary damages.

Apple is now looking at defending itself against 6 charges including fraud, abuse, and unfair trade practices. This is the second lawsuit that Apple has recently been served with charging the company of releasing information about a person's location without permission. The tech giant has continued to proclaim its innocence. On Wednesday, during a hearing in the U.S. Senate, Apple’s Vice President of Software Technology, Guy L. “Bud” Tribble, testified before the U.S Senate, answering questions about mobile privacy. Tribble said, "Apple was never tracking an individual’s location from the information residing in that cache."
