Apple Class Action: Here's how you can join the iPhone 'touch disease' class action lawsuit against Apple [mccunewright.com]

I am NOT involved with Apple nor the law firm. Searched and didn't find this on SD

Although, I have AppleCare and have gone several times to Apple Store, they still are not acknowledging the screen problem and a speaker problem with my phone. They keep blaming the iOS, which is also from Apple!

Finally, fed up with Apple's arrogance, I contacted the company below. This is my 5th iPhone in 10 years...


From the web site:
iPhone 6 Touchscreen Defect

McCuneWright has filed a class action lawsuit on behalf of owners of Apple's iPhone 6 and 6 plus. It has been alleged that the iPhone 6 series suffers from a design defect that causes reduced touch screen functionality. When the defect manifests itself, users will notice reduced responsiveness or no responsiveness when interacting with the touchscreen. The defect is typically preceded by a flickering grey bar across the top of the display. It has been further alleged that the logic board is the defective component causing the reduced touch screen functionality.

If you or someone you know has an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 plus and experienced issues with the touchscreen, please contact us.

Call us for a free consultation about your legal matter at 909.572.8019 or fill out the form below.

=================== EMAIL received after contacting them ===================
Thank you for contacting us regarding your interest in the Apple iPhone touchscreen class action. The case seeks to represent all owners of an iPhone 6 or 6 Plus in the United States who experienced issues with their touchscreen and, as such, you do not need to do anything to affirmatively opt into the case at this time. We have received a high volume of intakes and are unable to respond to everyone individually at this time.

To assist with our investigation and prosecution of this case, we have created a short survey with questions about your experience with your defective iPhone. The survey can be accessed at surveymonkey.com/r/iPhone_6_Touchscreen_Defect_Survey. The survey should only take five minutes of your time and we would greatly appreciate any information you can provide to us through the survey.

We cannot advise you on whether to have your defective device repaired while the case is pending. Through the class action, we are seeking reimbursement for all out-of-pocket expenses associated with the touchscreen defect, as well as warranty repairs for those who do not repair their iPhones. If you do pay for repairs to your iPhone related to this issue, please make sure to keep your receipts. We also highly recommend that you contact Apple directly regarding the touchscreen defect you are experiencing to ensure Apple has a record of your complaint.

We will post updates to our website page as the case progresses, so please feel free to visit mccunewright.com/iphone-6-touchscreen-defect.

If you have general questions relating to class action lawsuits, please visit our FAQs at mccunewright.com/class-action-faqs for more information.

Thank you for contacting us.

My first 6 Plus had this problem. Apple replaced it pretty damned quickly at the time.

Does this include the 6s/+ or just the 6/+?

just go to any Apple store and they replace it without any issues, instead of running behind law companies

I am experiencing this issue now on my iPhone 6+. My phone also happens to be included in the iSight recall. I'm scheduled to go to the Apple store this Saturday to see if they will offer a replacement.

I have this with my 6s, calls come in and I can't pickup or answer because nothing response. And if I touch the power button then it will be shut off refuse the call.

This is ridiculous however I was able to swap out for another iPhone 6s but the genus at Apple doesn't believe me when I told them of the issue.

I was 6 months of out warranty when this started happening, Apple wanted $329 for the repair. My phone is part of the iSight recall batch too, said they'd fix the camera issue but not the touchscreen problem. Apple reps know about this issue but Apple itself won't acknowledge the problem.

That's why you need to lawyers to prod them up the ass. I just don't get the stupid anti lawyer mentality in this country. Get rid of the lawyers and then see what these companies do to you.
