Report: Apple looking to block tracking lawsuit



What seems like a long time ago, it was found that iPhones continually kept tabs on where users were through 3rd party applications, and it stored all that data. Obviously this was brought to the attention of Apple and it was quickly corrected in a software update. However, many feel that Apple was selling the information, and have decided to bring a class action lawsuit again the company. Apple has recently requested though that U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh not allow this to be designated as a class action law suit. According to the plaintiffs, Apple collected this location information even after the user asked it not to via the iOS settings. Apple makes the claim that the plaintiffs changed this to a class action lawsuit, dropping the damages, “in a desperate attempt” to to recover some sort of fees from this. This isn’t looking too good for the plaintiffs.

What do you think? Do you agree with the lawsuit? Do you think Apple is in the wrong? Let us know in the comments, or tweet me @TiP_Kyle.
