iPhone user sues Apple over iOS 7 forceful upgrade
An unhappy Apple customer has sued the California outfit over why his iPhone should be force him to upgrade to iOS 7. A seemingly angry Mr. Menacher questioned why iOS 7 is forced into some devices in his household.
In a suit where Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO is named as defendant, the plaintiff, Mark Menacher, who also lives in California said, “Apple’s disregard for customer preferences in relation to iOS7 is corporate thuggery.
“Steve Jobs was reportedly rough on company employees in pursuit of happy customers, but Tim Cook apparently cultivates a culture of contempt for customer satisfaction in pursuit of corporate profits. It is a policy that will eventually fail.”
Apple automatically downloads iOS 7 installation files into any supported device once the device is connected to Wi-Fi, and then the phone prompts if you want to upgrade to iOS 7 each time you switch it on. There is no option to permanently decline the iOS 7 upgrade once the installation files are loaded onto the device.
Menacher wants Apple to remove the iOS 7 installation files from his iPhone and to stop bugging him for an upgrade completely. He also wants Apple to pay him $50 on compensation of his troubles.
