Apple’s new flagship phones, the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, does have a notch and most of us who follow tech news closely, know that.
Apple’s marketing team’s decision to use a black image as the wallpaper in its advertising, cleverly hiding the notch, led one woman to believe that the iPhone XS Max she preordered wouldn’t actually come with a notch.
Rather than asking for a refund, Courtney Davis, went ahead and filed a class-action lawsuit against Apple accusing them of designing its advertising to hide the notch.
“Images that disguise the missing pixels on the Products’ screens are prominent on Defendant’s website, as well as in the advertisements of retailers who sell the products,” the complaint said.
“These images were relied on by Plaintiff DAVIS, who believed that the iPhone XS and XS Max would not have a notch at the top of the phone.”
Which basically mean, the wallpaper on its ads are deceiving and Courtney fell for it.
Due to the nature of the lawsuit, it’s highly doubtful that it would actually make it to court.
