I don't own an Apple phone (nor any smart phone - poor reception in my area) nor am I an Apple hater (own some Apple products), but thought that owners should be aware of this problem as reported in the Guardian (currently the number one popular article on their site).

Here is a follow up article from the Guardian.

Not fond of what Apple did, not fond of seeing the ambulance chasers jumping in.

Here is a follow up article from the Guardian.

Not fond of what Apple did, not fond of seeing the ambulance chasers jumping in.

In fairness to those "ambulance chasers" (a pejorative term usually reserved for personal injury attorneys, rather than being used in regard to proprietary technology legal issues) my reading of the article indicates that a class action suit is being considered only in the UK, whereas a "PCVA" law firm in the U.S. seems to be offering representation for free, if it actually becomes necessary in the absence of any voluntary corrective action by Apple.

I got an iPhone 5s some months ago, willfully declining to get the (too large for me) iPhone 6. This iPhone 6 issue makes me very glad that I chose the 5s instead.
