Woman Sues Over False Positives in iPhone Moisture Sensor

A San Francisco woman is suing Apple over what she claims are dishonest practices revolving around the use of liquid contact indicators (LCI). The small tabs, which are supposed to change color in the presence of liquid beyond the manufacturer's specifications for normal moisture and humidity, have been common in Apple devices since 2007. The woman, San Francisco resident Charlene Gallion, claims that she was denied service due to a false positive by her iPhone's LCI, even though she claims it had not been exposed to water. Because she was unable to verify Apple's claim about a positive LCI, she claims in her suit that Apple's warranty is "rendered illusory."
