Apple Pays Man $946 Compensation Over iPhone Tracking

Apple was ordered to pay a guy in South Korea $946 in compensation over iPhone tracking. You read that right, nine hundred and forty six dollars.

Apple Inc's Korean unit has paid compensation to a user of its popular iPhone after collecting location data without consent, lawyers and court officials said, the first payout by the company over these complaints. In May, Apple Korea was ordered by the court to pay 1 million won ($946) in compensation to Kim Hyung-suk.
