In November of last year, Apple had on its “One more Thing” -Event presented its M1 chip as well as the new Macbook Air and Macbook Pro with the in-house fast processor. In the past few weeks, however, there has been an increasing number of reports from users that the displays on these new models should be cracked and cracked without any particular stress. Apple now has to deal with two lawsuits that could become class actions.
Display damage on Macbooks: class action threatened
Both lawsuits were filed in a district court in San, California last week Jose submitted, as The Register writes. The law firms involved are counting on the court granting them appropriate permission to represent clients who may be affected. Then the proceedings could expand into a class action, the end of which could then be a settlement with Apple – and money would flow.
According to one of the lawsuits, the new Macbook models with M1 chip from 2020 and Be affected in 2021. The screens are exceptionally fragile, so the allegation. According to the lawyers, thousands of users around the world have reported problems with cracked or broken displays directly to Apple or in specialist forums in the past few weeks. Based on the feedback and internal tests, Apple must therefore know the name of the problem.
Broken Macbook -Displays: Black bars
In a similar horn blows the other lament. Accordingly, Apple developed and manufactured the Macbooks with an inherent defect in the screen. Even with normal use, black or gray bars could suddenly appear. The displays are also prone to cracks. According to user reports, the display problems could suddenly appear months after the purchase.
Because Apple has not yet recognized the problem, affected users have to make use of – expensive – repair services, as the lawsuit says. In one specific case, the display repair cost US $ 850. Apple, on the other hand, has so far only let you know that users should not leave anything on the keyboard or palm rest inside when they close the Macbook. That could break the display.
Apple has not yet commented on the process itself. Let’s see if the tech company from Cupertino has eliminated the problem with the expected new Macbook models.
