Apple faces dumb lawsuit over the size of iOS 8

Susie Ochs | Jan. 5, 2015
You mean my 16GB device doesn't have 16GB of free space? I'll see you in court.

So this lawsuit strikes me as being a bit whiny--kind of "Apple never said I'd have to plug in my iPhone to charge it!" you know?--but I'm sure people have sued Apple over dumber things. Yeah, iOS 8 does take up a lot of storage. And it's true, 16GB feels stingy even for entry-level devices these days. But as Lesa Snider just wrote in her review of cross-platform photo-storage solution Mylio, "The reality is that you won't have fewer photos in five years, you'll only have more." Figuring out where to store them all is on you. Not Apple.
