It seems that Apple Watches are defecting and it is possible that Apple knew about all this. According to the plaintiff, Kenneth Sciacca of Colorado, all Apple Watches are defective. These include Series 0, Series 1, Series 2, and Series 3. There seems to be a flaw in the Apple Watches that cause the screens to break and separate from the rest of the body. This could be an issue with the battery expanding.
According to the lawsuit, customers reported the flaw after the launch of each model, which means that Apple knew about the flaw in the Apple Watches before they were launched. the lawsuit, filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, reads:
“Apple knew that purchasers of the Watches would reasonably expect the screens to function in a predictable and expected manner during normal use,”
Some people are calling this a cash grab and it could be so but even if it is, this could cause Apple to lose a lot of money. The expanding battery issue has been confirmed by Apple and the company said that it would fix the affected units. The lawsuit further states as follows:
“Had Plaintiff and other Class members known about the Defect at the time of purchase, they would not have bought the Watches, or would have paid less for them. As a result of the Defect in the Watches and monetary costs associated with repair, replacement, or lost use of the Watches, Plaintiff and Class members have suffered injury in fact, incurred damages, and have otherwise been harmed by Apple’s conduct.”
We don’t know the outcome of all this but we do know for sure that this will dent Apple’s reputation in the market and people that have faced these issues will have a hard time trusting in Apple products yet alone Apple Watches in the future. If nothing more, it is already really bad PR and that is something that Apple does not need right now.
