Apple Hit With $5 Million Lawsuit Over iOS 9 Update

October 29, 2015  |  

Last month, we told you about a controversial new feature that came as a part of Apple’s iOS 9 update. The add-on is called “Wi-Fi Assist” and is programmed to switch from Wi-Fi to 4G whenever the phone’s software determines that your Wi-Fi connection is weak. While it seems that the tech company was looking to be helpful with the feature, many were outraged because it essentially has the potential to raise your cell phone bill. And for this reason, they’re being sued.

According to Good Housekeeping, a couple of Apple customers have filed a $5 million lawsuit claiming that the company failed to properly warn consumers about the new feature, which automatically switches on when you download the iOS 9 update.

William Scott Phillips and Suzanne Schmidt-Phillips, who filed the lawsuit, argue that because Apple failed to educate their customers about this update, they should reimburse them.

We’re not really sure how this lawsuit is going to pan out for them, but you can learn how to turn off the Wi-FI assist feature by clicking here.
