Class Action against Apple to Be Filed within South Korea

Dec 28, 2017

It is likely that a class action against Apple will also be filed within South Korea followed by the U.S. and Israel.
A law firm called Hannuri is going to gather litigants that will participate in a lawsuit against Apple Headquarters and Apple Korea claiming damage starting from the 28th.
“Apple did notify information on its important update that would degrade iPhone’s performance and hid it.” said Hannuri. “We need to press hard on Apple’s legal responsibility as this is clearly a illegal matter.”

Hannuri is going to gather litigants who will participate in this lawsuit and decide on when it is going to file a lawsuit after analyzing materials and documents.  Amount of claim per person has not been decided yet.
“Unlike the U.S., even when a plaintiff from a class action wins a case in South Korea, other plaintiffs cannot be remedied.   However they can file another lawsuits when a plaintiff from a class action wins his or her case.” said Hannuri.
Previously Apple acknowledged that it carried out a software update that would degrade iPhone’s performance in order to prevent sudden power outage of iPhone 6, iPhone 6S, and iPhone SE.  Because it carried out a software update without its customers’ consents, complaints from iPhone users are spreading globally.  Four cases of class action were filed in the U.S., and iPhone users in Israel are also joining in a class action.
