Popular action filled for the compensation of consumers who purchased iPhones from Apple

The consumer protection association Ius Omnibus filed today a popular action in the Lisbon District Court, which aims to restore the legality and defend Portuguese consumers who were harmed by Apple’s illicit practices regarding the transmission of information and misleading advertising about the resistance to liquids of iPhones. In case of success, the action will lead to Apple being ordered, inter alia, to refrain from misleading advertising in this regard in the future and to pay compensation to all owners of iPhones 7 to 12. It is estimated that each represented consumer will have the right to an average compensation of 101 EUR, with a global compensation of 137 million EUR.

In this action Ius Omnibus is represented by law firm Sousa Ferro & Associados.
