Breaking News: Apple Currently Being Sued

Apple has focused on consumer privacy over the last few years. The iPhone manufacturer has argued about the matter with other Big wits in the Tech industry, most notably Meta, the owner of Facebook. Facebook has lost huge revenue due to Apple's attempts to preserve customer data.
However, it turns out that Apple has been gathering user data on its own, despite its users having adjusted their settings to prevent the corporation from doing so. Apple is currently being sued.

The software company Mysk's Tommy Mysk and Talal Haj Bakry, who work as app developers and security experts, recently discovered that iOS sends "every tap you make" to Apple from inside one of the business's apps. The developers claim that attempts to prevent collecting this data, such as using the Settings option to "block the sharing of Device Analytics completely," did not affect the data's transmission.

Additionally, the data being gathered is comprehensive. The App Store app on an iPhone would send a user's search information, what they clicked on, and how long they spent looking at an app in real-time to Apple, as noted by Gizmodo—utilizing the Apple Stocks app. The user's watched stocks, any articles they read in-app, and the names of any stock they looked up will all be sent to Apple. Also transmitted along are the timestamps for when a user reads stock information. Even more specific information on the user's iPhone, including the model, screen resolution, and keyboard language, is gathered by a few Apple apps.

A jailbroken iPhone running iOS 14.6 was used by Mysk to conduct the test. The team used a non-jailbroken iPhone running iOS 16 to find similar iPhone activities. However, because of encryption, Mysk could not ascertain the data transmitted on the device running the most recent operating system.

On Thursday, a class action lawsuit was filed asserting that Apple's actions violate the California Invasion of Privacy Act. The suit is less concerned with the notion that Apple is gathering this data. The lawsuit focuses on Apple options like "Allow Apps to Request to Track" and "Share Analytics," which give customers the impression that they can turn off such tracking.
