Have you noticed that you are running out of memory on your iPhone so damn fast since you downloaded iOS 8? If so, then there is a class action lawsuit that should help you make feel better about your lost….kinda.
The lawsuit is suing the Apple corporation because two residents of Miami purchased 16GB iPhone and iPad and the devices had less than 16GB in it. They said:
“Apple’s misrepresentations and omissions are deceptive and misleading because they omit material facts that an average consumer would consider in deciding whether to purchase its products.Rather ironically, Apple touts iOS 8 as ‘The biggest iOS release ever.’ Of course, Apple is not referring to the literal size of iOS 8, which appears to be entirely undisclosed in its voluminous marketing materials extolling the purported virtues of iOS 8.”
According to The Verge, the average iPhone has has around 19% of the memory capacity unavailable to the user due to the massive amount of formatted memory used for the phone’s operating system. It’s around 21% and 23% for Apple’s iPad and iPod counterparts respectively. While this is expected, no one is expecting this mount of their phones memory to go unaccounted for. The lawsuit even further states that Apple is pretty much doing this to push their iCloud services for music, video, and photos when they run out of memory.
I’m going to be very blunt with this because frankly, this sounds like a huge bitchfest for people who feel like that Apple owes them something due to the lack of memory. Yes, it sucks that Apple’s operating system uses that much memory and that they should keep that keep that in mind when they plan out their phones. But it’s really childish and stupid to sue them for that. You might as well sue every chip company for not filling the bags of chips full of chips. This is a common problem with all smartphones and not just iPhones. If the people would have investigated this before they purchased (they invented google for a reason bitches!). They could have also returned the phone and got Android phones because those you can get SD cards and get more memory in your device. Moral of this story: Research the products you buy before you ruin things for the rest of us.
