Apple’s recent run of bad luck with it’s
After a cut in the forecast of next year’s sales sent Apple’s share price crashing down by over a quarter of a billion, Qualcomm getting few iPhone models banned in China and clamouring for more, a lawsuit filed on Friday has accused Apple of lying about the specifications of it’s iPhone X series.
The lawsuit, filed in US District Court of Northern California, alledge Apple falsely advertised the screen sizes and pixel in its latest series of phones, including iPhone X, iPhone XS, and iPhone XS Max.
The lawsuit goes into details and claims that
- Screen Size is misrepresented and includes “non-screen areas” such as notch and corners. The size advertised was 5.8 inches, however, the plaintiff claims it is only about 5.6875 inches.
- Resolution of the iPhone X and iPhone XS is advertised as 2436 x 1125 pixels, while iPhone XS Max is supposed to be 2688 x 1242. However, the lawsuit argues that this is a deliberate misrepresentation and the screens do not use true screen pixels which makes the pixel resolution count misleading and counts false pixels as if they were true pixels, deviating from all the other versions of iPhone on how pixels were counted.
