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.
