Apple is in the news for all the bad reasons, after the iPhone sales ban in china, a lawsuit against Apple filed in a US court has accused Apple of making false claims about the screen sizes and pixel counts of the displays in its iPhone X series, to be more specific it is about the images used to market the iPhone X, iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, CNET reported.
The suit filed on Friday in the District Court of Northern California alleges that the Cupertino, California-headquartered tech giant lied about the screen sizes of iPhone X,iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max devices by counting non-screen areas like the notch and corners.
The two plaintiffs who filed the suit are seeking class action status, according to the report. The suit alleges that Apple is falsely marketing the new line of iPhones as”all screen”.
The plaintiffs allege that the ‘planet’ wallpaper was misleading, as it diverts a user’s attention from the notched display. So basically, the lawsuit accuses Apple of lying about the display size and specifications in its iPhone X lineup of devices.The lawsuit claims the back portions of those wallpapers have been intentionally included to hide the notch on the iPhone X, iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max. The filing says that those marketing images lead one of its plaintiffs to believe that the iPhone XS Max she ordered did not have a notch.
For example, the screen size of iPhone X is “only about 5.6875 inches”, and not 5.8 inches as claimed by Apple, the complaint stated.
The plaintiffs also allege that the iPhone X series phones have lower screen resolution than advertised, the CNET report said on Saturday.
Apple was sued over its products earlier also. A lawsuit filed in June alleged that the screen of Apple Watch has a tendency to “crack, shatter or detach from the body of the watch.”
This is not the first time that Apple is facing such lawsuit, earlier this year a number of customers sued the company in separate 59 lawsuits over a software tweak that throttles some old iPhones. If you recall, the company was hit by another class-action lawsuit over “defective keyboards” in MacBook and MacBook Pro models.
