At least one customer hasn’t been too thrilled with some of the battery issues with the new iPhone from Apple.
Jose Trujillo, irritated customer, has filed a class action law suit against Apple:
“One iPhone customer wasn't happy at all with the iPhone's battery life or the two alternatives to replacing a defective battery and filed a class-action lawsuit against Apple as a result. In the suit, Jose Trujillo claims that:
Unknown to the Plaintiff, and undisclosed to the public, prior to purchase, the iPhone is a sealed unit with its battery soldered on the inside of the device so that it cannot be changed by the owner.
The suit goes on state:
The battery enclosed in the iPhone can only be charged approximately 300 times before it will be in need of replacement, necessitating a new battery annually for owners of the iPhone.”
While Apple may not have released any advertisements that touted the non-replaceable battery as a ‘feature’ or the best thing since sliced bread, they didn’t seem to indicate otherwise in any public advertisements.
As for the 300 recharges, Apple claims > 80% capacity at the 400 charge point.
