Apple Sued for not Allowing iPhone Upgrade Program Customers to Pre-order iPhone 7 & 7 Plus



Earlier this week, a class action lawsuit was filed against Apple in the U.S District Court of California. The lawsuit led by Brooklyn-based Emil Frank alleges that the users of iPhone Upgrade Program on the launch day of iPhone 7 are told to ‘check back.’ Whereas the new users can get the device on the first day, the earlier users who had opted for iPhone Upgrade Program need to pay for the older iPhones, even though they decided to get the new phone after the launch.

With the upgrade program, the user can get the iPhone and need to pay the amount in 24 instalments and after the 12 instalments, the user can opt for a new iPhone. As the device will be unlocked, it can be used wth any SIM. The upgrade program also includes $129 worth AppleCare+. Now the filed lawsuit hadn’t mentioned any amount as compensation, but asking for the reimbursement for the fault of Apple along with the attorney and expert fees.

The new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are launched in San Francisco on September 7th, and the pre-orders started from September 9th in the U.S. Unlike the new customers, the users under the upgrade program are unable to pre-order the device. As the devices eligibility will be further delayed, the users still need to pay the monthly fees or the older devices.

As of now, the company hasn’t responded to the law suit and we will update there more details are out. The devices will be available starting from September 16th. The Apple iPhone 7 with 32GB costs $649 and the iPhone 7 Plus with the same storage capacity is priced at $769. Last year’s iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus are priced same as the new devices but they came with just 16GB of internal storage.

If you are from India, both the devices will be launched on October 8th, and the pricing will start from Rs. 60,000 onwards. Stay tuned on Phone Radar for more updates!
