A complaint filed on Friday accuses Apple of lying about the display specifications of its iPhone X series.
Two plaintiffs filed suit with the US District Court in Northern California, claiming that Apple had falsely announced screen sizes and screen pixel counts in its iPhone X, iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max devices. The plaintiffs seek the status of a class action.
Apple did not respond immediately to a request for comment.
The lawsuit alleges that Apple has lied screen sizes by counting non-screen areas such as notch and corners. So according to the 55-page complaint, the new iPhone series is not "all screens". For example, the screen size of the iPhone X is supposed to be 5.8 inches, but the plaintiffs have measured that it is "only about 5.6875 inches".
The plaintiffs also claim that the phones of the iPhone X series have a lower screen resolution than announced. The iPhone X is said to have a resolution of 2436
This is not the first time Apple has been sued for its products. Dozens of customers sued in 59 separate lawsuits in March for a software change that stifled some older iPhones and sought class-action status. In June, Apple was hit with another $ 5 million claim on the screen for the Apple Watch's tendency to "break, crack or break loose".
The plaintiffs' lawyers did not respond immediately to requests for comment.
