A lawsuit filed in a US court has accused Apple of making false claims about the screen sizes and pixel counts of the displays in its iPhone X series, CNET reported.

The suit filed on Friday in the District Court of Northern California alleges that the Cupertino, California-headquartered tech giant lied about the screen sizes of iPhone X, iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max devices by counting non-screen areas like the notch and corners.

The two plaintiffs who filed the suit are seeking class action status, according to the report.

The suit alleges that Apple is falsely marketing the new line of iPhones as “all screen”.

For example, the screen size of iPhone X is “only about 5.6875 inches”, and not 5.8 inches as claimed by Apple, the complaint stated.

The plaintiffs also allege that the iPhone X series phones have lower screen resolution than advertised, the CNET report said on Saturday.

Apple was sued over its products earlier also. A lawsuit filed in June alleged that the screen of Apple Watch has a tendency to “crack, shatter or detach from the body of the watch.” (IANS)

Apple has released the seventh beta of iOS 13 to registered developers and a Brazillian site iHelp BR has found that the iPhone 11 series would be released on September 10.

The Brazillian site found an image, named “HoldForRelease”, which has the September 10 date on the calendar of the iOS 13 home screen, hinting at the possible release date of the iPhone 11 series, The Verge reported on Thursday.

Notably, this is the same date predicted for Apple’s event based on analysis of when Apple held the event in previous years.

The iPhone-maker would launch three iPhone 11 models this year — The D43 (internal name) would replace the iPhone XS Max, the D42 (internal name) would replace the iPhone XS and the N104 (internal name) would replace the iPhone XR, according to news portal 9TO5MAC.

Known Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo had also earlier suggested that the upcoming iPhone models would be equipped with reverse wireless charging.
