Apple Hit with Class Action Lawsuit Over iPhone Storage
Dec 31, 2014, 3:24 PM by Eric M. Zeman
Apple is facing a lawsuit from consumers who feel the company's mobile operating system consumes too high a percentage of the on-board memory. Specifically, the plaintiffs argue, "The discrepancy between advertised and available capacity is substantial and beyond any possible reasonable expectation. For the devices, the shortfall ranges from 18.1% to 23.1%." The lawsuit alleges that Apple hid the size of the iOS8 update from users and then "aggressively marketed" additional cloud storage to those who ran out of storage space on their mobile devices. The issue primarily impacts owners of Apple's 16GB iPhones, iPads, and iPads. The operating system leaves as little as 12.3GB available to consumers on some devices. Further, the lawsuit alleges that Apple falsely advertises the amount of storage available to its devices due to the way the company partitions the drives. Drives in Apple devices have a media partition and a root partition. The lawsuit claims the size of the root partition is unnecessarily large, leaving consumers with an even smaller portion of the drive for their media. Finally, the lawsuit also complains about the iPhone's inability to use swappable memory cards; its incompatibility with file manager programs; and its strict ties to Apple's cloud services. The lawsuit was filed in California on behalf of two Florida residents.

You bought a 16 GB iPhone because you presumably didn't care about storage space in the first place. Furthermore, everyone knows that Apple is tying their whole ecosystem to the cloud. It's one of the selling features. Why pretend to be shocked they are offering you cloud storage solutions?

Why is it unthinkable that a modern OS needs a little less than 4 GB? In my opinion ...
