Recently it was seen that Apple is being sued by a pair of Florida men claiming the company has misled users about the storage capacity of its devices. They stated that more than 23 percent of storage space on Apple’s devices will be consumed by Apple’s iOS 8 alone. The complaint alleges that Apple failed to inform its users that installing iOS 8 would take up as much as 23.1 percent of the phone’s storage capacity.
“The defendant fails to disclose to consumers that as much as 23.1% of the advertised storage capacity of the devices will be consumed by iOS 8 and unavailable for consumers when consumers purchase devices that have iOS 8 installed,” wrote Jonas P Mann of US law firm Audet & Partners in a complaint filed in the northern district of California.
“Reasonable consumers, such as Plaintiff, do not expect this marked discrepancy between the advertised level of capacity and the available capacity of the Devices, as the operating system and other storage space unavailable to consumers occupies an extraordinary percentage of their Devices’ limited storage capacity.”
Paul Orshan and Christopher Endara, the two Florida men who have launched the suit, are seeking millions of dollars on behalf of a nation-wide class of Apple users, reported Business Standard.
Apple faced similar issue around eight years ago as per CBS News reports. Apple won a battle over the amount of storage space on iPods. The issue was with the 8GB iPod Nano featured 7.45 GB of space, a difference of only 7.5 percent.
