Apple sued over cracked iPhone 4

Defective product
A Californian bloke is suing Apple because his expensive iPhone 4 shattered when his daughter dropped it. Donald LeBuhn is leveling a class action lawsuit at Apple charging the company with knowingly selling a defective product.

After months of flogging the iPhone 4s, Apple has failed to warn and continues to sell this product with no warning to customers that the glass housing is defective,” LeBuhn says in the complaint. To be fair it did mention that it needed a rubber band to work and it has confessed that there was a disconnection feature when you moved the gizmo near your ears. However LeBuhn is right and Apple has not fessed up to cracking glass problems.

LeBuhn tested an iPhone 3G and dropped it from about 3 feet without the device suffering any harm however the iPhone 4 glass shattered. In October, a study by warranty provider SquareTrade revealed that iPhone 4 owners were reporting damage 68 percent more frequently than iPhone 3GS owners did four months after both devices had been on the market for four months.

Broken screens is the most frequently reported damage for the iPhone 4, according to the study. LeBuhn’s lawsuit says that that Apple makes false claims about the iPhone 4. Apple’s website says the iPhone 4?s screen is “chemically strengthened to be 20 times stiffer and 30 times harder than plastic” and “ultradurable”.
