Another day, another lawsuit. This time it’s Apple.

Quite disappointing to find out that Apple, a company that actively markets itself as a user privacy-protecting business, is not immune to the temptations of user data collection.


Apple is the subject of a class action lawsuit for its mobile tracking activities. This report <https://news.bloomberglaw.com/litigation/apple-hit-with-class-action-over-tracking-of-mobile-app-activity> explains that it is not really the fact of the user tracking that has these complainants up in arms. It’s that Apple provides mechanisms in iOS that purportedly enable the user to turn off tracking but the tracking does not actually stop even after the user has configured their mobile phone to stop tracking. The complaint notes that Apple’s privacy policy itself states that Apple gives users control on how Apple uses their information. Apparently, that is not actually the case. Hence, this suit.


Here is the link to the complaint: https://www.bloomberglaw.com/public/desktop/document/LibmanvAppleIncDocketNo522cv07069NDCalNov102022CourtDocket?1668466213
