In August 2020, a class-action lawsuit
was filed against Apple for allegedly misleadingly marketing the MacBook Pro laptop with a touch bar as having “truer-to-life pictures with realistically vivid details” when, according to plaintiffs, the flex cables connecting the display to the controller beneath the touch bar are defective and wear out as the laptop is opened and closed, which causes the laptop’s display to show dark spots and eventually stop working. (Ocampo et al v. Apple Inc.
, Case No. 20-cv-5857, N.D. Cal.)
