Halunen law serves as co-counsel in this class action against Apple Inc. According to the Complaint, Apple failed to inform users that the “Wi-Fi Assist” application, included in the iOS 9 operating system, activates automatically and causes iPhones and iPads to switch from Wi-Fi to cellular data without any action required by the user. This switch uses customers’ cellular data without their knowledge, resulting in customers experiencing overage charges.
