Apple faces lawsuit over the impact of iOS 8 on device storage space

Apple is facing a new class-action lawsuit in California, this time from users unhappy about how much storage space iOS 8 takes up on their devices. Their complaint focuses not only on newer iOS devices like the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, but older devices as well.

From SiliconBeat:

Depending on the device they purchase, consumers who install iOS 8 allegedly receive substantially less storage than advertised, ranging from 18.1 percent for the iPhone 5s to 23.1 percent for the iPod, according to the complaint.

The plaintiffs are seeking damages from Apple, and hope to force the company to change policies regarding how users are informed about their device's storage space.
