App Law: Update on Privacy

iOS devices generate a trove of personal information. Do app-developers have access to the personal information of iOS device users? This is the basis of a complaint launched by a US group, as a nationwide class action lawsuit against Apple and a number of iOS app developers. The claim suffered a setback in September when a US judge dismissed the suit (see the PDF; the dismissal makes for interesting reading), with leave to amend.

There are more than 200 million iOS devices in play around the planet, several hundred thousand available apps, and reams of personal info generated by users: address book entries, cell phone numbers, file systems, geolocation data, subscriber identity numbers, keyboard cache, photographs, SIM card numbers, and unique device identifiers.  Who has access to this info, and for what purpose, are questions that have cast a cloud over Apple’s popular ecosystem. 

This story is one that will likely come back through an amended complaint.
