Apple is facing a fine of $5 million for monitoring iPhone data
Gizchina News of the week
For Apple, there is a new lawsuit in the US. It was claimed that gathering data containing current information violated users' right to privacy. Additionally, this goes against Apple's user-controlled “personal data” policy.
Apple is facing a class lawsuit with a $5 million fine. Paul Whalen, the attorney who brought the action, alleged that Apple breached users' privacy and went completely against what it had pledged. According to rumors, iPhone users can submit a claim if Apple gets a penalty as a result of the legal action.
The ID number connected to an iCloud account is in use to transfer the user's name, email address, and phone number. Data collecting, however, may expose private information, like a user's sexual orientation, religion, or even health conditions.
Also, this is not the first legal action over data collecting brought against Apple. The company has already been subject to gathering location data and exchanging user information without permission. It will be interesting to see how Apple responds to the new case and what impact that would have on iPhone owners.
We hope that these claims turn out to be completely false. So what are your thoughts on this matter? Don't forget to leave us a comment with your thoughts!
