Lots of Law Firms Have Ganged up on Apple for Its iPhone 6 ‘Touch Disease’ Issue

Apple is under immense pressure for not providing an in-depth explanation as to why so many iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus devices have stopped functioning thanks to the infamous ‘Touch Disease’ issue. To make matters worse, the tech giant has also been slapped with a class action lawsuit thanks to consumers facing this issue.

Lawyers Have Signed on Three Additional Law Firms to Support Their Case Against Apple for the iPhone 6 Touch Disease

Last month, Apple was struck with a lawsuit where three individuals, Thomas Davidson, Todd Cleary and Jun Bai had stepped up against the Cupertino tech firm, with the following details included in the lawsuit:

  • California’s consumer fraud statutes
  • Negligent misrepresentation
  • Breach of implied warranty
  • Unjust enrichment
  • Violations of the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act and Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act

Lawyers who filed a class action lawsuit against the company in California earlier this fall have signed on three additional law firms to support their case. Still, Apple seems unnerved at the moment because it will not perform logic board-level repairs for consumers, which requires soldering and reseating of millimeter-sized components.

Another reason why Apple should be concerned about this problem is that the company has been replacing touch diseased iPhone 6 with $329 refurbished models, and some of these models have started to display symptoms of touch disease within days or weeks of being replaced. Spending $329 is equivalent to purchasing a decent spec’d Android phone so we can understand a customer’s outrage of having to face the same issue again.

According to sources close to the matter, Apple is well aware of the iPhone 6 ‘Touch Disease’, but is not disclosing details about it. If you want a detailed explanation of the iPhone 6 touch disease issue, it has been provided in the video below. Till then, Apple should gear itself against these lawsuits, because the outcome is going to be far from pretty.
