The decision was made regarding the screen issue that hit Apple’s agenda in January 2019. The tech company, which went to court for damages caused by the display cable fraying in models from 2016 and above, is facing massive charges.
The problem called “Flexgate” caused several errors by wearing out the display cable as a result of the screen turning on and off continuously. The problem that initially caused light reflections extending upward from the bottom bar caused results all the way to screen tears.
Apple solved the problem, but couldn’t escape the decision
After the problem faced by the users, the decision on the incident was taken in court. The judge, Edward Davila, allowed the “flexgate” case to continue and ruled that Apple knew they would fail and continue to sell them anyway.
In addition, the judge said, “The court ruled that the allegations about the pre-release test, along with allegations of significant customer complaints, are sufficient to demonstrate that Apple has exclusive knowledge of the alleged defect.”
After the decision, no explanation has yet been received from Apple. However, according to the claims, the process appears to be going on for a long time.
Of course, after the issue, Apple fixed this issue in new models and changed the display cable used. The process remains uncertain for the time being.
