Korea administers tiny slap to Apple for geolocating folk

It’s hardly a death dealing blow, but the South Korea telecomms regulator fined Apple a staggeringly small fine of close to $3,000 for collecting data on people’s locations on its iPhone.

That, as far as we can tell, is not $3,000 per South Korean iPhone.

That’s something that Apple, according to the Wall Street Journal rebuts.

The regulator also ticked off the almighty Google for the same thing but in this case South Korea fined the search behemoth a huge fine of exactly zero.

Apple admits nothing, according to an official spokesperson. Google was a little more circumspect, confining itself to the fact it’s cooperating with the Korean Communications Commission.
