Following US concerns about Apple's data collection, Germany has also expressed a worry about the privacy implications for iPhones users.
The New York Times has reported that Sabine Leutheusser-Schnarrenberger, a German justice minister has requested that Apple reveal the kind of data they are collecting.
This move comes following a letter which was sent to Apple last week by US congressmen Edward Markey and Joe Barton concerning the same issue.
German data protection experts say that Apple should solve this problem by obtaining the explicit consent of each user before sharing data with any third party.
