RV_ Posted February 13, 2016 Report Share Posted February 13, 2016 FYI Excerpt: "Apple is facing a class action lawsuit over the phone-bricking "Error 53," which has left some customers in need of a new phone. The problem affects iPhone owners who've had third-party (read: non-Apple) work done on their phone's home buttons, which also houses the fingerprint scanner. Numerous people have reported that while the hardware seemed to be fine after the repairs, their phones became completely inoperable after updating their iOS operating system. Frustratingly, there doesn't seem to be a way to recover the phone after that point; the only option is to get a new device. That obviously hasn't sat well with phone owners affected by the problem. Now, the law firm Pfau Cochran Vertetis Amala PLLC (PCVA) has announced in a press release that it's filed a class-action lawsuit to get compensation for those affected by the problem. "The first objective is to get all the affected iPhone customers re-outfitted with working phones, and without the overwhelming costs that thousands of people are facing right now with error 53 codes and bricked phones,” said Darrell Cochran, lead attorney for the suit, in a release. “That will provide immediate relief to the consumers and, in the end, it will also help Apple." The rest with both sides is here: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-switch/wp/2016/02/12/apples-being-sued-over-a-security-feature-that-can-break-the-iphone/?wpmm=1&wpisrc=nl_tech Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
