On January 24th Patently Apple covered the 50th class action filed against Apple for purposely slowing iPhones and we linked to 31 of our reports on this subject in a report here. While we stopped covering this story after the 50th, the class actions sailed passed 60. We now have learned that Apple is now on record beginning their fight against this sea of class actions.
According to Westlaw Practitioner Insights report, Apple Inc. is urging a federal judge to dismiss a class action alleging iPhone battery performance fraud, calling the defect claims baseless.
According to the class action in federal court in San Jose, 2016 and 2017 software updates caused unexpected shutdowns and hampered the performance of iPhone SE, 6 and 7 models, misleading customers into believing their phones were close to the end of their life cycle and forcing them to buy either new phones or replace batteries.
