Lawsuit alleges Apple’s iPhone XS marketing images...

... deceptively hide the notch



A lawsuit has been filed against Apple this week by a man and women claiming prominent iPhone XS and iPhone XS marketing photos on Apple.com are overly deceptive in hiding the notch. The lawyer for the plaintiffs claims they pre-ordered an iPhone XS Max unaware there would be any “missing pixels,” bezel or notch of any sort.

In the 55-page lawsuit posted...
blah blah blah blah- blah.

Lives everywhere are being ripped apart because of Apple's deceptive coverup of the notch.

These people are idiots. Did they also expect convex screens?

1) Apple has some return policy, I believe 14 days (or maybe 30 days for phones?). There is plenty of time to notice the notch and make up your mind if you can live with it or return the damn phone.

2) OK, so they feel cheated. Give them the money back and add them to the "DO NOT SELL TO THESE MORONS" List.

3) I personally think the notch looks ugly. Why not make the display a little shorter in the vertical direction and maintain a notch-free screen shape? I find the notch not only ugly, but stupid. I see that some Androids copied even the notch. disgusting.

Didn’t some other phones have a notch first? If you want functional hardware at the top of your edge-to-edge screen, you get a notch, I think. I’ve seen plenty of folks with iPhone Xs in my travels about the city, and so far no one seems to be bleeding from the eyes because of the notch.

Is there any debate that Apple has gone to great efforts to hide the notch in most of its promotional materials?

I don't know why they do that. It sets people up for disappointment once they see the real thing.

Whether that's a litigatable practice, I kind of doubt, when it is so profoundly visible once the phone is in hand, and they accept returns.

I see no one debating that. I don't recall the previous photos used in the online order process, but it's not possible to order one without seeing the notch now.

Is there any debate that the couple did know about the notch before ordering and contrived this silly suit in an attempt at fame and fortune?

At this point, or any as far is I'm concerned, it's a non- issue. To me, the notch is a non-issue. It's not even enough to be a First World Problem, but apparently someone wants to make it so.

If there were two X-Models, one with it and one without, yes, I'd take the one without.

Some people hate the notch. Other than actual cases of notchophobia (not to be confused with nachophobia) it's a choice.


I like the balanced look of all four corners having content even at the expense of having a notch, and think having a black bar across the top to avoid it is silly and would be aesthetically annoying.

But I could get used to either, quickly.

Yay, me.

I noticed a new iPhone billboard yesterday that clearly shows the notch. First one I've seen. Must be fallout from the lawsuit.
