Judge: no one in America is concerned about the pixel count in iPhones

According to Law360 (a subscription is required to read the entire article) a California federal judge appeared skeptical Thursday of keeping alive a proposed class action alleging Apple misrepresents its iPhone screen size and pixel count, saying Apple discloses that its phones’ rounded corners impact screen size and “there doesn’t seem to be anyone in America” who’s really concerned about pixels.

Last December two plaintiffs filed the suit in the US District Court of Northern California, alleging Apple falsely advertised the screen sizes and pixel counts of the displays in its iPhone X, iPhone XS, and iPhone XS Max devices. The plaintiffs are seeking class action status. 

The suit alleges that Apple lied about the screen sizes by counting non-screen areas like the notch and corners. The plaintiffs also allege that the iPhone X series phones have lower screen resolution than advertised.
