Apple Sued For Launching Too Many Products
Apple Sued For Launching Too Many Products

Brazilian Institute of Politics and Law Software (IBDI) has filed suit against Apple, claiming that the quick release of the iPad with Retina display constitutes “planned obsolescence” with regards to its predecessor, the new iPad. Reports Mashable.

According to Brazil’s Jornal do Comerciao, IBDI believes that Apple could have implemented the technological updates of the iPad 4 into the iPad 3. By not doing so, they believe that Apple took part in unfair business practices. Were Apple to lose in court, iPad 3 users in Brazil could receive some compensation.

"Consumers thought [they were] buying high-end equipment not knowing [it] was already an obsolete version," says IBDI attorney Sergio Palomares.
