Apple is a company that has a whole set of devices. You could probably set up a house with all the devices Apple has to offer. The connectivity between those devices is phenomenal, to say the least. It is that which keeps the users stuck on their devices. The operating system is also something which is one of the best in the world. It is secure and has an outstanding cloud service. Talking from a user’s point of view, these devices offer fantastic personalization options and the ease of use on another level along with their stunning personal assistant; Siri.
The iPhones over the years have seen the tremendous transformation. They have caught up with the evolution of the smartphone after revolutionizing it in the first place. That said, the fans have been not been so happy with Apple’s current set of iPhones. The design has remained the same while there are some tweaks from the previous iPhones, nothing significant has been seen from Apple. Instead, it has fallen in certain traps that they set it up for themselves.
Apple was caught by its users recently when they tweaked settings so that the old iPhone users would change to the newer iPhones. That said, the company made some changes in the iOS update which made the battery drain of the older iPhones. The company confessed to this as all the users were upset with the US-based tech giant. The company later apologized and changed the batteries of the older versions of the iPhones for a minimal cost.
This was the first taste of what Apple could do to push the users towards newer versions of their devices. Apple is one of those companies which produces almost every device by themselves except for some of their components of iPhones. It produces the earphones, the chargers and all the other things in the box by themselves.
That said, Apple had another trick up their sleeves. This time the company wanted to the users to buy new chargers and hence a secured update of iOS saw to that. The iPhone users with old chargers and old phones weren’t able to use their chargers as some of the iPhones failed to recognize the iPhone charger. There were many users who faced this problem and they had to buy a new charger. This has caused a lot of problem for the company as they are now facing a suit for the same.
This was not only for the iPhones but many of their devices. The devices kept refusing the charger and the users had to change the chargers repeatedly. The suit is filed in the United States District Court in the Central District of California. The main plaintiff is Monica Emerson and there are many others she represents who are situated in the same area.
The lawsuit also mentions that Apple makes their own chargers and that the message “this accessory may not be supported” on the devices means “requiring that users buy a new charger”. However, Apple responded by saying that the message displayed can be because of a number of reasons. One of those could be that the charger might be damaged or defective.
