Apple is being sued by owners of Apple’s iPhone 6 and 6 Plus phones, over unresponsive touchscreens. Apple has long been aware of the defective iPhones. Yet, notwithstanding its longstanding knowledge of this design defect, Apple routinely has refused to repair the iPhones without charge when the defect manifests. Many other iPhone owners have communicated with Apple’s employees and agents to request that Apple remedy and/or address the Touchscreen Defect and/or resultant damage at no expense. Apple has failed and/or refused to do so.

Problems with iPhone 6 touchscreens were described online last week by iFixit, which labeled the issue “Touch Disease”. That company sells repair parts and has previously analyzed other Apple products. Apple, based in Cupertino, California, sold 166.4 million iPhones, generating $108.5 billion (roughly Rs. 728,089 crores) of net sales, in the first nine months of its current fiscal year.
