Apple seeks to block data collection class action suit
By Phil Dzikiy | 03.01.13

A lawsuit alleges that Apple collected data from millions of mobile devices without permission, but Apple argued at a Thursday hearing that plaintiffs have failed to prove their claims. The customers have accused Apple of collecting geographical data through apps on mobile devices, even after the users chose not to share the data. The plaintiffs’ attorneys asked U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh to designate the suit as a class action, but Apple is seeking to stop the action, claiming that it hasn’t been proven that users actually had information collected by free apps without consent, and therefore can’t show they’ve suffered harm.
