Report: South Korean iPhone users sue Apple

A group of South Korean iPhone owners is suing Apple for allegedly invading their privacy, Bloomberg reports.

About 27,000 people joined a class action lawsuit against Apple, claiming the smartphone maker illegally collected location data without their consent.  

They are seeking 1 million won per person — or $930 — in damages, according to the report.

South Korean telecommunication regulators fined Apple 3 million won earlier this month for collecting location data even after some users turned off the tracking features on their iPhones.

An Apple spokesman declined to comment to Bloomberg.
