Apple settles iPhone tracking lawsuit in South Korea

Apple has paid a South Korean man the equivalent of $950 in compensation over "psychological stress" and infringement of constitutional rights to privacy, as the aftermath of the iPhone location-tracking controversy drags on. Lawyer Kim Hyung-Suk filed the case on April 26, PhysOrg reports, with the court ordering Apple to pay up; the company's South Korean arm claims it did not raise an objection to the suit.
