If you remember, a few days ago we informed you of the possibility of a lawsuit against Apple since a law firm was collecting data on all users who had problems with the screen of their MacBook Pro M1. The time has come. From what it seems, they already have enough data to initiate the lawsuit and it has been. Lawsuit filed in the US District Court for the Northern District of California.
Apple has been sued collectively alleging that MacBook M1 models shipped with a hidden defect which makes your screens break easily. The lawsuit, filed Tuesday in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, is the culmination of an investigation by the Migliaccio & Rathod law firm that concluded that MacBook screens are break easily.
The lawsuit accuses Apple of violate various some of the warranty laws, consumer protection and false advertising. According to the complaint, users have reported that MacBook screens are darkened by dead spots. It also claims that the screens on MacBook M1 models crack easily.
These problems often develop while MacBooks are closed. Many owners have reported that they first observed cracks and / or screen malfunctions when opening their devices from a closed position. Others report that their screens cracked when they adjusted the screen’s viewing angle in the ordinary way. A typical consumer would not expect such activity to damage their device, much less cause a darkened screen and / or screen breakage that affects its functionality.
The lawsuit claims that Apple concealed, failed to disclose, or carried out deceptive marketing practices to cover up the defect. For example, it argues that Apple promoted the durability of notebooks while “actively” hiding the defect from consumers. A jury trial is also required. It is intended to achieve:
- A statement that the MacBook displays are defective
- Damage to the plaintiffs
- Fee and minutes of the lawyers
