AppleCare and AppleCare+ Plans
July 2016: A class-action lawsuit was filed against Apple alleging, among other things, that the company misrepresents that replacement devices provided to consumers under extended warranties, such as the AppleCare and AppleCare+ plans, will be new devices when they are actually refurbished, reconditioned, and secondhand. (Maldonado et al v. Apple Inc., AppleCare Service Company, Inc., and Apple CSC, Inc., Case No. 16-cv-4067, N.D. Cal.)
