The lawsuit goes after Apple for failing to disclose this practice to users and offering an opt own option.
The lawsuit also points out the Apple tries to stand apart from Facebook, Amazon and Google with its privacy first approach, but that isn't really the case as the fiasco has shown.
The plaintiff goes on to argue that if users wanted to use Apple devices in the future, how would they be certain this practice isn't going on anymore.
