iPhone 6 users file lawsuit with Apple over “Touch Disease”
With good news, comes bad news, right? Although the upcoming launch of the new iPhone 7 is approaching quickly, iPhone 6 users are less than impressed with Apple right now.
Many iPhone 6’s are succumbing to a “Touch Disease” which is used to describe a bug that is plaguing the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus.
A company that fixes issues like these stated last week that the disease is only affecting the iPhone 6 models, due to special chips that connect with the devices main board. Over time, the chips begin to crack which causes a lost connection between the display and the connection board. The ending result is a phone that is practically unusable.
A lawsuit has been filed against Apple from several iPhone 6 users, stating that Apple has a known defect in their devices and are unwilling to address or fix the issue. It doesn’t help that Apple has remained completely silent over the issue and isn’t willing to work on the defective phones.
Many people who are visiting the Genius Bar at Apple stores are being told that others have the same issue, and there is nothing they can do about it. Understandably, Apple users are very upset that their only option is to buy a new phone.
Many people are outraged at Apple’s lack of responding to this issue. People feel that they pay a pretty penny for an iPhone, only for it to stop working a couple months later. Since the problem is persisting in so many users, the lawsuit is stating that there should be a recall, or lifetime warranty associated with these issues.
If you are users to the fairly new iPhone 6, and you begin to see a gray, flickering bar at the top of your screen, your phone has fallen victim to the “touch disease.” You better hope you’re eligible for an upgrade, because Apple won’t be helping your 6 out any time soon. Good news is, the iPhone 7 is coming out soon.
