Storage Capacity of Apple Devices with the iOS 8 Operating System
December 2014: A class-action lawsuit was filed against Apple alleging, among other things, that the company misleadingly advertised the storage capacity of 8GB and 16GB iPhones, iPads, and iPods with the iOS 8 operating system. According to the complaint, as much as 23.1% of the advertised storage capacity is consumed by the operating system and unavailable for consumers. (Plaintiffs filed an amended complaint in May 2018.)
