Is the Apple storage lawsuit legit?

Episode 1156 (17:08)

John from Carlsbad, CA

John is curious about the lawsuit against Apple regarding the stated storage capacity vs. the actual capacity. Leo says that while it's true that when buying an iPhone (or any smartphone) that half of the storage is used by the software and operating system, that's true of hard drives as well. Most people understand that. It is true that the 8GB iPhone users were left wanting when trying to upgrade to iOS 8, though (you need 5GB for it). But most class action lawsuits are started by law firms that get the lions share of the settlement. Perhaps this will motivate a more accurate explaination of how much storage there really is, rather than relying on fuzzy math.
