Apple iBrick iPhone 3G / 3GS Lawsuit: List Of Complaints

From the moment that iPhone 3G and 3GS owners updated to iOS 4 they experienced a number of problems. The two main issues were how slow things were, as well as locking up; we were told that iOS 4.1 would help solve this, but although things improved a little — they were not enough to keep owners happy.

Apple is now involved in a class action lawsuit, where they have been accused of crippling both the 3G and 3GS — now known as iBrick – intentionally with the iOS 4 update. The lawsuit claims that Apple did this to force them to upgrade to the new iPhone 4.

According to a report from The Mac Observer, one of the claims states that the previous iPhones are “little more use than that of a paper weight.” The lawsuit also claims that Apple knew this, but still did this in order to increase sales of their new fourth-generation iPhone.

What made the matter worse was the fact that 3G and 3GS owners are unable to restore to the older version of iPhone OS. This is a tough one for Apple, one that they need to handle carefully in order to keep their customers happy.

What do you think Apple should do?
