A New Class Action Lawsuit Filed Against Apple Claims All Apple Watches Have Defective Display

First spotted by Patently Apple, a new class action lawsuit filed against Apple claims that all models of the Apple Watch have shared the same defect in which causes the display to "crack, shatter, or detach from the body of the watch.”

The Watches all contain the same defect and/or flaw, which causes the screens on the Watches to crack, shatter, or detach from the body of the Watch (the “Defect”), through no fault of the wearer, oftentimes only days or weeks after purchase.

According to court documents, as it claims that Apple has sold millions of watches with the defect throughout the United States, and "knew that the Watches were defective at or before the time it began selling them to the public,” but “failed to disclose the Defect.”

Move on, the lawsuit says that Apple has an internal policy to "deny the existence of the defect, claim the Defect is the result of “accidental damage” caused by consumers rather than the design flaw and provides no Warranty on the issues.

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 hasn’t yet commented on the matter. However, the company has acknowledged few issues with the Series 0-3 models, like the swollen batteries and markings on the display. The complaint is seeking damages of $5 million.
