Apple likely to face deceptive trade practices lawsuit by multiple U.S. states: Tech Transparency Project

Going by documents obtained a tech watchdog group, many U.S. states are investigating Apple Inc’s trade practices, including a potential deception of its products to consumers.

According to the Tech Transparency Project, the attorney general of Texas could potentially sue Apple for violating the state’s deceptive trade practices law in connection with the multi-state investigation, shows a document.

No additional details have been disclosed.

The office of the Texas attorney general declined comment.

Apple did not immediately respond to requests for comments.

In the past, Apple has faced class-action lawsuits from consumers alleging that it reduced the performance of batteries in its ageing iPhones. Earlier this year, Apple had agreed to pay up to $500 million to settle one such lawsuit.

Cupertino is also facing lawsuits alleging that it knew and concealed how the “butterfly” keyboards on its MacBook laptops were prone to failure.
