In this potential court case, Apple's problem is one, Jose Trujillo, who is suing Apple and seeking class-action status in a lawsuit over the iPhone. It turns out Apple "marketed it's [sic] iPhone as a 'revolutionary new mobile phone' that incorporates 'high technology'," whatever that means. Besides that, most of the substantive allegations focus on the iPhone battery, including: Unknown to the Plaintiff, and undisclosed to the public, prior to purchase, the iPhone is a sealed unit with it's [sic] battery soldered on the inside of the device so that it cannot be changed by the owner. The battery enclosed in the iPhone can only be charged approximately 300 times before it will be in need of replacement, necessitating a new battery annually for owners of the iPhone."
