A case was filed against Apple earlier back last week in the Northern District of California. Known as Touch Disease, users of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus filed a lawsuit against Apple over the display issue of Apple iPhone. The case tabled by the customers alleges that the company is aware of the existence of the problem and is refusing to fix the affected devices. The users of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus accuses Apple of the fraud.
Owners of iPhone 6 and 6 Plus say a defect in the design is the reason behind phone’s unresponsive display screens and making them unusable. According to the reports, users proposed a national wide class-action lawsuit late last week. A flickering Gray bar appears at the top of the touch screens, and users argue Apple is aware of the defect but has refused to fix it.
Apple did not use a metal shield or underfill to safeguard the relevant parts like as on the versions of iPhone 5. It is reported that plaintiffs linked the problem to the absence of the underfill. The complaint filed in federal court in San Jose, California says, “The iPhones are not fit for the purpose of use of smartphones because of the touchscreen defect.” Todd Cleary of California, Thomas Davidson of Pennsylvania, Jun Bai of Delaware are the named plaintiffs in the lawsuit, which accuses Apple of the fraud and violating consumer protection laws of California. They seek unspecified damages.
iFixit was the first to describe online about the Problems with iPhone 6 touchscreens last week and named the issue “Touch Disease.” Apple sells repair parts and has analyzed other products previously. It is reported that this California-based tech giant has sold 166.4 million iPhones and producing net sales of $108.5 billion in the present financial year, summing three-quarters.
The case is Davidson et al. v. Apple Inc, US District Court, Northern District of California, No. 16-04942.
