Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has preferred to file a motion to seek the dismissal of a class action lawsuit in relation to iOS device capacity of newly shipped iPhone, as well as iPad, devices. While the plaintiff charged the technology bellwether with misrepresenting the storage space to consumers, the company has retorted by saying that the plaintiff failed to come up with proof of fraud.

Intentionally Mislead

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s filings in the California Court said that the two plaintiffs, Christopher Endara and Paul Orshan, failed to provide supporting evidence that the buyers of iPad and iPhone were misled intentionally. This was in respect to the usable disk space on the gadgets with iOS 8. In December, the plaintiffs filed a lawsuit against the company for providing less storage facility that it claimed.

The technology firm said that wherever software is written, a portion of the device’s resources are utilized, including storage capacity. The company followed the same principle as far its iOS mobile operating system 8, like any other firm.

The plaintiffs contention was that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) was well aware that its iOS 8 would take up some space on the disk. The OS was bigger than the expected size at 600 MB up to 1.3 GB. The plaintiff also charged the company with failing to estimate the reasonable quantum of space that its iOS 8 would occupy, compared to its earlier versions of OS. Therefore, the company attempted to sell the item deliberately with lower storage space.

Dismissal Suit

In its support to dismiss the lawsuit, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) said that there were two flaws of a fundamental nature. One was the inability to come up with supporting proof on the disk storage capacity. The second was in respect to the subscription to iCloud storage plans. The company clarified that its iCloud storage plans are applicable only for upgraded service options. The technology company provided 5GB of iCloud storage space free with every purchase of a new device.
