Apple Could Be Facing A Class Action Lawsuit Due To iMessage
Apple could find itself facing a class action lawsuit over the loss of text messages due to its iMessage service. California resident Adrienne Moore filed a case against Apple back in May 2014, saying that she missed out on receiving text messages after giving up her iPhone 4 and moving to a Samsung Galaxy S5. Moore’s victory in court means that she now has the ability to pursue a class action lawsuit against Apple. She is also seeking unspecified damages. “I recently switched from an iPhone to Android, and discovered shortly thereafter that my phone number was still associated with iMessage, meaning that any time someone with an iPhone tried texting me, I’d receive nothing, and they’d get a “Delivered” receipt in their Messages app as though everything were working as expected,” she said in her original complaint. Apple recently launched an online tool that lets former iPhone users deregister iMessage which you can read about here.
