O Quebec High Courtin Canada gave a green light for a set of Apple customers to sue the company, claiming that iPhones batteries and other products are ?not durable in the long run?.
The lawsuit also includes owners of iPods, iPads, Apple Watches, and MacBooks who purchased their devices from late 2014, as well as customers who purchased the device. AppleCare + from December 2015, as informed by the Montreal Gazette.
In the latter case, the class action suggests that consumers who paid for Ma's extended warranty were not adequately informed about the coverage of the plan under the guidelines of the Quebec Consumer Protection Act.
As we said, the Quebec court has released the class action after inferring that Apple "does not provide products that last for a reasonable period of time" however, it is not clear how long it would be "reasonable" for them, after all we are talking about gadgets up to five years old.
Canadian law firms Renno Vathilakis and LPC Advocat are leading the process. In this case, both class actions require compensatory and punitive damages to the affected consumers.
It is worth recalling that in 2018, Apple headed an extensive iPhones battery exchange program around the world, replacing 11 million components during the year.
