iPhone 6 Plus Memory Lawsuit Claims Apple Gives A Bad Deal On Storage With iOS 8
An iPhone 6 Plus memory lawsuit is claiming that Apple gave iOS 8 users a bad deal in regards to the iPhone 6 storage capacity. But are the iPhone 6 Plus deals already giving users the experience they should expect, despite allegations to the contrary?
In a related report by the Inquisitr, one of Walmart’s iPhone 6 Plus deals was so good that one man apparently felt the need to boil his iPhone in Coke. If the iPhone 6 Plus screen size is way too big for your hand, then you might be interested in the latest iPhone 7 rumors since it’s believed Apple may release an iPhone 6S Mini in the first of half of 2015.
The Apple lawsuit decided to end the year with a bang. No fireworks were involved, but the lawsuit lit a fire under the company in the last week of 2014. The major complaint is that Apple allegedly failed “to disclose to consumers that as much as 23.1 percent of the advertised storage capacity of the devices will be consumed by iOS 8 and unavailable for consumers.” According to Courthouse News, they put this iPhone 6 Plus lawsuit into context by claiming that “each gigabyte of storage Apple shortchanges its customers amounts to approximately 400-500 high resolution photographs,” which may cause the storage limits to be hit at the worst moment.
“To compound the harm to consumers, after Defendant provides materially less than the advertised capacity on the Devices, Defendant aggressively markets a monthly-fee-based storage system called iCloud. Using these sharp business tactics, Defendant gives less storage capacity than advertised, only to offer to sell that capacity in a desperate moment, e.g., when a consumer is trying to record or take photos at a child or grandchild’s recital, basketball game or wedding.”
There are several reason to not buy these complaints about the iPhone 6 Plus memory capacity. This particular smartphone issue is not unique to Apple, since both Google’s Android and Microsoft’s Windows Mobile also tend to consume a hefty amount of internal memory. It should also be highlighted how both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus memory options include up to 128GB in space, while competitors often max at around 32GB for internal memory. For example, only 8.65GB of storage is available to users that buy the Samsung Galaxy S5.
Do you think this Apple lawsuit makes a good argument against the current iPhone 6 Plus memory capacity limitations?
