The “Touch Disease” Brings Class Action Lawsuit Against Apple

iPhone Screen

The class action lawsuit filed against Apple regarding the “Touch Disease” basically deals with the failed hardware on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

The filed complaint against Apple has to do with a growing number of iPhone 6 and 6 Plus phone users experiencing a thin gray flickering line along the top of the screen on their cellphone. The lawsuit also claims Apple refused to repair the defected devices for free.

At this point, three plaintiffs have filed complaints against Apple, the paperwork states the plaintiffs are requesting for Apple to repair, recall, and/or replace the iPhones affected by the Touch Disease, extend the warranties for all iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus users with issues relating to the occurring “Touch Disease” syndrome, as well as reoccurring issues from this problem, and finally, the plaintiffs are requesting unspecified amount for damages as well.

The “Touch Disease” seems to occur when the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus have had issues of being abused or dropped frequently causing the iPhone’s touch IC chips to come loose.
