The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have been freezing up and they won’t respond to touch commands. And because of this, Apple may be facing proposed class-action lawsuits here in the U.S.A and in Canada. This came after many users claimed that the tech giant knew about the defect for long but has refused to work on it.
According to a lawyer, Tony Merchant, “as they began to have more and more complaints and people were going to them, they brushed it under the rug.” Back in September, the Merchant Law Group filed two class-action suits against Apple; one was Canada-wide while the other suite was mainly for Quebec residents.
The proposed suite which will be filed at the court of Queen’s Bench for Saskatchewan would include all iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus users in Canada, and just as Merchant stated above, he wants to charge Apple for negligence as the company supplied defective phones to users. The suite will also include the clause that Apple did this knowingly, and even after being notified of the problems, it intentionally refused to provide a (proper) remedy.
