How to Install watchOS 5 Beta on Your Apple Watch for Free Without Developer Account Latest class action lawsuit alleges all Apple Watches are defective

For what it's worth, Apple has acknowledged that the battery on some Apple Watch units can experience swelling and, in turn, can cause a screen to detach from the body of the device. He demands $5 million in restitution from the company. The Apple Watch is the latest Apple product that has led to a class-action lawsuit. Most recently, not just one, but two lawsuits trying to get Apple to rectify the butterfly keyboard in the MacBook and MacBook Pro models.

It's worth noting here that expanded batteries in the Apple Watch are not uncommon.

The complaint accompanies pictures of Apple Watches that have had their screens come off.

The lawsuit reads, "Further, Apple's conduct, when confronted with the Defect, indicates that its internal policy is to deny the existence of the Defect, claim the Defect is the result of "accidental damage" caused by consumers, and then refuse to honor its Limited Warranty on those grounds".

Apple did not immediately respond to a Fortune request for comment.

"Apple knew that the Watches were defective at or before the time it began selling them to the public", claims [PDF] Sciacca, who wants $5m from Apple and is looking for others to join the lawsuit. On or around March 9, 2018, Sciacca's Watch screen became detached from the body after he removed the watch from its charger, according to the lawsuit. "They can pay over $200 to fix an already expensive Watch; they can purchase AppleCare+ for at least $49 (and then pay an additional $69 service fee for each incident); they can purchase a new Apple Watch; or they can simply not use their Watch".

Sciacca's specific beef is over a Series 2 Apple Watch that he bought in December 2016 from an Apple Store in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

Apple Watches are displayed during a launch event in Cupertino, California, U.S. September 12, 2017. Filed by Kenneth Sciacca of Colorado this week, the suit (which was originally spotted by Patently Apple) claims that the aforementioned design defect impacts all iterations of the Apple Watch and has been known to Apple for a few years now. It's unclear whether the issue affects only specific screen materials or sizes, but photos accompanying the lawsuit show a stainless steel Apple Watch that has a sapphire-covered screen.
