“David Yastrab, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, has filed a class action lawsuit against Apple in California. Much of the complaint revolves around iOS 7 issues and the ‘Grayed out Issue’ in particular,” Jack Purcher reports for Patently Apple. “Whether the suit is worth more than $5 million dollars remains to be seen. Our report focuses on the “Nature of the Action” which provides a detailed yet narrowed overview of the lawsuit.”
“This is a consumer class action brought by Plaintiff on behalf of himself and all others similarly situated who acquired, in the United States and its territories and its protectorates, Apple’s iPhone 4, iPhone 4s and iPhone 5 (collectively, the ‘iPhones’) and experienced reduced functionality of their iPhones as a result of the updates to iOS, essentially forcing consumers to render their iPhones obsolete,” Purcher reports. “After downloading iOS 7, Plaintiff and Class members’ iPhones’ Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connections became ‘grayed out’ and unusable.”
Purcher reports, “The more than 100 member Class action lawsuit is seeking more than $5 million dollars according to what’s legally available to them in a case of this nature.”
