Apple sued over unwanted iOS 7 download

Mark Menacher filed a small-claims complaint against Cook in the Superior Court of California in San Diego and accused him of "corporate thuggery", according to CNET.
He downloaded the iOS 7 install file onto his family's gadgets after prompts from the devices to update his software, and was angered by its new features and different look.
Mr Menacher, from Poway, California, wants the large file removed so he can use the space for other apps and content.
In his court papers, he wrote: "Apple's disregard for customer preferences in relation to iOS 7 is corporate thuggery.
"Steve Jobs was reportedly rough on company employees in pursuit of happy customers, but Tim Cook apparently cultivates a culture of contempt for customer satisfaction in pursuit of corporate profits.
"It is a policy that will eventually fail."
iOS 7 was the biggest redesign in Apple's new operating system and came with severe glitches as users were logged out of their accounts and the fingerprint software could be cheated by fraudsters lifting prints.
The overhaul left many users wishing they could revert to their familiar iOS 6, as a number of new features introduced with the new software irritated iPhone and iPad owners.
Other reports of security glitches in the iOS 7 include a claim that anyone can make calls from a locked iPhone, as reported on the technology blog NDTV gadgets.
