Every Apple Watch Has This 'Defect,' Class Action Lawsuit Says

Class action claims all Apple Watches are defective

Latest class action lawsuit alleges all Apple Watches are defective

Just as with the lawsuits now ranged against Apple for its "butterfly" keyboard on the most recent MacBook Pros where the keys fly off and are hard to replace, requiring consumers to pay Apple technicans to fix them, Sciacca notes that "consumers began to complain that the screens on their Watches were spontaneously detaching from the body of their Watches" shortly after the initial launch of the Apple Watch in April 2015.

Not to be outdone, the latest class-action lawsuit targeting Apple claims that the Apple Watch display is inherently faulty and prone to cracking, shattering, and in some cases, detaching itself completely from the Apple Watch casing. The screen issues seen are allegedly no fault of the user and often happen only days or weeks after purchase. Apple is now facing another class action suit and this time the suit is over the Apple Watch. Filed in California, the lawsuit is for a relatively small amount - $5 million - but seeks class certification on behalf of all Apple Watch owners and is attempting to raise awareness of Apple's alleged efforts to hide the defect from customers.

According to PatentlyApple, a six-count class action suit seeking $5 million has been filed against Apple in San Jose, California, for the company's refusal to acknowledge an "Apple Watch Defect".

Just over a year later, in March 2018, the watch screen "unexpectedly detached from the Watch's body shortly after he removed the watch from its charger". Moreover, the lawsuit claims that Apple is outright refusing warranty claims for the issue, saying that there is damage done by the Apple Watch owner to cause the screen to break in one of the aforementioned ways.

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.

That extended warranty was only for first-generation Apple Watches. The company has acknowledged two problems with the original "Series 0" models that can cause their batteries to swell and back covers to fall off under certain conditions.

So far, Apple has recognized a few defects with the Apple Watch. And to suggest that every single model/series of the Apple Watch is defective might be swinging for the fences. Indeed, even the Series 2 saw an expanded battery issue.
