Apple faces legal suit for misleading Siri Ad

The voice assistant Siri app was first of its kind and was introduced with iPhone 4S.

California based mobile device manufacturer Apple has been sued by an iPhone 4S user for a “misleading advertisement” of Siri. The voice based search application was introduced by Apple with the iPhone 4S. According to the company, the app enables users to send messages, make calls, set reminders, and more by just speaking to the phone.

Frank Fazio, a resident of New York, has filed a case claiming that Apple is misleading its customers to buy the product. According to the Fazio, the advertisement of Apple about Siri app is misleading and deceptive.

The case that has been filed against Apple states that the Siri is shown to be scheduling appointments, finding local restaurants and even learning guitar strings while in reality the application does not perform on the device as it is advertised. The complainant also claims that as a result of the misleading messages about the iPhone 4S’s Siri feature, conveyed through its nationwide advertising and marketing campaign, Apple has been able to charge a significant price premium for the iPhone 4S.
Apple’s Siri assistant is known for causing errors and problems are being face by users across the globe but this is the first time ever that someone has opted for such an elaborate action. The plaintiff also claimed that had Apple not advertised the Siri assistant in this way, he would not have brought the iPhone 4S.

Apple seems to be working its way around this legal tangle that has to be a certain shock for the mobile equipment manufacturer. The case was filed on 6th March but there have been no updates released by the court.
