- A class action lawsuit has been filed against Apple.
- The lawsuit alleges that the company disabled support for original chargers on older iPhones.
Apple is facing a new class action lawsuit that was filed recently by Monica Emerson, a resident of California. This new case alleges that the company intently pushed an update to its phones so that they reject being charged when connected to older Apple chargers, thus forcing users to buy new original chargers made by Apple. MacRumors has uploaded a copy of the lawsuit, and an excerpt from it reads, “In an effort to dominate the cellular telephone marketplace, Apple Inc. forced updates to the iPhones which were specifically designed and programmed to reject, starting on November of 2016, old iPhone chargers from properly charging the iPhones.”
