Apple’s iOS 7 has been received to mixed response, some love it while some hate it. Apple also recently announced that iOS 7 is the fastest adopted operating system which might be a little funny considering Apple is forcing the iOS 7 update to the iDevices without asking any permission from the user. Well that might truly be the case if reports are to be believed.
A man from California, Mark Menacher has filed a lawsuit against the Cupertino giant and CEO Tim Cook claiming that iOS 7 was forced on his iDevices without his permission. He filed the complaint on Thursday at the Superior Court of California. Menacher said he wants “removal of iOS7 downloads from his family’s iDevices and reimbursement of ancillary costs totaling $50.”
He also added that, “Apple’s disregard for customer preferences in relation to iOS7 is corporate thuggery,” Menacher said. “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.”
He claims that the iOS 7 update was downloaded and installed on his device and his family’s iDevices without being asked for permission and Menacher wrote in the complaint which the PCMag got through, “Unsolicited and undesired, the Defendant has downloaded software to several iDevices. This represents fraud, trespass, and theft. Plaintiff seeks removal of software download and restitution for time and expenses pursuing such.”
A trial date has been set at the court for Jan. 28, 2014. We had written a piece listing down the bad and good iOS 7 brings and it seems the bad is too bad to handle for some folks. So anyone else here who got the iOS 7 update downloaded and installed without being asked? Do sound off in the comments below..
