Apple is again at the brunt of a lawsuit, this time from a pair of consumers in Florida over the tech giant giving consumers less storage space than advertised in its devices, as well as the amount of storage needed to upgrade to iOS 8. In a legal complaint, Miami residents Paul Orshan and Christopher Endara called the out-of-the-box size discrepancy of Apple products as “deceptive and misleading,” with the amount of unavailable storage ranging anywhere from 18.1% to 23.1% on Apple’s newer 16-gigabyte products, compounded by the size of the iOS 8 update, which uses over 1GB of additional space. The complaint seeks class action status for other users of the company’s 16GB devices, and also accuses Apple of pushing its paid iCloud online storage solutions to consumers and restricting third-party storage options. What do you think of Apple’s storage situation on its latest devices? Leave your thoughts and comments below if this has affected you.
