Judge Tosses iPhone Battery Suit

Susan Hall

A federal judge in Illinois has thrown out a case against Apple and AT&T claiming they lied to consumers about the iPhone's battery life, reports CRN.


Jose Trujillo brought the suit in 2007, claiming in his filing that the battery could only be charged 300 times before users had to buy a new battery, which costs $85.95. He sought class-action status for the suit.


But U.S. District Judge Matthew Kennelly pointed out that the iPhone box states the battery can be recharged only so many times before it has to be replaced. Apple says it can be recharged 400 times, according to the story. Kennelly wrote that no reasonable jury would find any deception, prompting him to dismiss the case.
