Federal Lawsuit Filed Against Apple For Secret iPhone Location Tracking

April 26, 2011 by · Leave a Comment 

Though this isn’t surprising at all, but once again, Apple has sued for many purposes, but the main reason behind which Apple has been accused is that Apple was secretly tracking your location through GPS. Actually, every movement of yours was noted by Apple, which is illegal. Hence, this ha happened! Let’s have more information on this from below.

Federal lawsuit filed against Apple over iPhone location tracking

Apple Inc. (AAPL) was sued for alleged privacy invasion and computer fraud by two customers who claim the company is secretly recording and storing the location and movement of iPhone and iPad users, according to a federal complaint filed today in Tampa, Florida.

Those location data that have been tracked by Apple secretly from their users, was kept in  file and secretly backed up in iOS devices and was saved in the iTunes and was sent to Apple.

Then, followed by this, another news has again warmed up the web that even Android is also in the race with Apple regarding locating its own users.

But, today, Steve Jobs, Apple CEO, has given a justification to a user in a reply of an email that “we don’t locate anyone but Android does”.

Also, according to the report of Bloomberg;

We take issue specifically with the notion that Apple is now basically tracking people everywhere they go,” Aaron Mayer, an attorney for the plaintiffs, said today in a telephone interview. “If you are a federal marshal, you have to have a warrant to do this kind of thing, and Apple is doing it without one.

Actually, two men, Vikram Ajjampur, a Florida-based iPhone user, and William Debito, a New York iPad owner, are taking Apple to task over the way iOS keeps tabs on location data – presumable the pair don’t want Cupertino’s finest knowing just how many times they visit McDonalds/Chipotle/generic food establishment.

Well, if you believe that you are also tracked, then, you can stop this by a solution that can be found here. Also, just don’t forget to share your views and comments on this with us.
