Apple is being sued for updating 16GB iPhones and iPads to iOS 8

42 sec read

The fact that it’s 2015 and Apple is still selling 16GB iPhone models has already drawn a lot of criticism to the company, but now it could be resulting in a lawsuit. Two customers in Florida are suing the company because 16GB iPhones and iPads that they purchased didn’t actually offer that much storage space, particularly after the heavy iOS 8 update. 

Apple’s caught plenty of flack for continuing to sell iPhones and iPads with just 16GB of storage in 2014, and just as much for the amount of storage needed to upgrade to iOS 8, two things that a pair of customers from Florida are suing the company over. In a legal complaint filed yesterday in California, Miami residents Paul Orshan and Christopher Endara say that the 16GB iPhones and iPads they purchased had less than that amount of usable space, something Orshan contends was further reduced after upgrading his iPhone 5S from iOS 7 to iOS 8. The lawsuit makes clear that Apple notes the size of a gigabyte after it’s been formatted by system software. But it also argues that Apple’s iOS system software then takes up another large chunk of the space, reducing the usable space more when upgrading to iOS 8.
