Apple is getting sued over iPhone X, iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max’s ‘misleading’ images and display specifications

The year does not seem to a good one for Apple. It first saw the not-so-great iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR sales, followed by the first full-year fall in its sales in India in four years, and more recently, it lost a lawsuit to Qualcomm in China. And now, the technology giant is being sued in a class-action lawsuit because it has been claimed that Apple has used misleading marketing images advertise the iPhone X, iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max.

The lawsuit has been filed by two plaintiffs from California — Christian Sponchiado and Courtney Davis. According to the lawsuit, the images used by Apple to market its iPhone X or higher models, do not sport a notch, and hence, create a false impression that the smartphones come with displays without notches.

The complaint says, “Defendant’s marketing of its Products falsely inflates their screens’ supposed pixel counts, resolutions, and sizes to make the Products seem more appealing to consumers. Defendant does so because screen resolution is an important factor to consumers when evaluating smartphones.”

So, not only is Apple accused of not showing notches on its smartphones‘ displays in marketing images but also for making fraudulent claims about the size and pixel count of its OLED iPhone displays. The complaint runs into 55 pages and says that Apple has lied about the screen size of iPhones by including the size of notch and corners, which are technically not the display. The complaint mentions that instead of being 5.8-inches in size as Apple claims, iPhone X’s screen is 5.6785-inches.

It is worth noticing that this isn’t the first time that the Cupertino-based technology giant has been sued over its devices. The company was sued earlier this year by a number of customers in 59 separate lawsuits because the performance of some of the older models of iPhone was affected because of a change in software.

That’s not all. More legal troubles may be coming Apple’s way as American chipmaker Qualcomm plans to get the iPhone ban in China extended to include the latest lineup of iPhones by the company.

    aged 81.

    A family representative said he “passed away peacefully at home from natural causes”.

    Rogers topped pop and country charts during the 1970s and 1980s, and won three Grammy awards.

    Known for his husky voice and ballads including The

    decades.

    He once summed up his popularity by explaining that he believed his songs “say what every man wants to say and that every woman wants to hear”.

    After growing up in poverty on a federal housing estate in Houston, Texas,
    Rogers began recording. with a string of bands, including Kenny Rogers and
    the First Edition, before launching his solo career
    in 1976.

    time, and the 10th best-selling male artist in US history in terms of album sales.

    He collaborated with other country music legends during
    his career, including Dolly Parton and Willie Nelson.
