Apple hasn’t yet commented on this legal action, reports CNET:
The suit alleges that Apple lied about the screen sizes by counting non-screen areas like the notch and corners. So the new line of iPhones aren’t “all screen” as marketed, according to the 55-page complaint. For example, iPhone X’s screen size is supposed to be 5.8 inches, but the plaintiffs measured that it’s “only about 5.6875 inches.”
It did always bug me that Apple managed to convince the tech press that its iPhone X range had an edge-to-edge screen, when even the briefest of investigations – i.e looking at it – could determine it didn’t.
