Tech giant Apple has been reportedly sued over apparently shrinking the storage space on its ipad, iPhone and iTouch devices.
The lawsuit was filed by two Florida men — Christopher Endara and Paul Orshan — in a district court in Northern California.
In the lawsuit, the complainants said, “Using these sharp business tactics, Apple provides less storage capacity than they advertise, only to offer to sell that capacity in a desperate moment, e.g. when a consumer is trying to take or record photos at a child or grandchild’s basketball game, recital or wedding. Each gigabyte of storage Apple shortchanges its customers amounts to nearly 400-500 high resolution images.”
The lawsuit also sought millions of dollars in damages for the customers who are facing the storage squeeze while using their Apple devices.
According to the complainants, Apple promises more storage space than they actually deliver on their devices.
They further argued that the technology company offers 16 gigabytes of digital storage in its advertisements on cheaper range models, but approximately a fifth of that is consumed by their latest operating software.
Both Endara and Orshan argued that once the Apple users reached their storage space limit, they are left with no option but to pay for availing additional storage on the company’s iCloud service.
Meanwhile, Apple has yet not issued any official statement on the lawsuit.
