Apple is facing a newly-filed class action lawsuit which alleges the company doesn't properly warn customers about the storage requirements of for iOS 8. The lawsuit -- filed by William Anderson of the Washington, D.C. based firm Cuneo, Gilbert, & Laduca -- claims the installation can take up to 23.1 percent of the total storage of a device.

At the heart of the complaint is Apple's promotion of its own, paid, iCloud storage service when users run out of memory. The complaint, found by SiliconBeat, claims this marketing hits users at their most important and personal moments.

Using these sharp business tactics, defendant gives less storage capacity than advertised, only to offer to sell that capacity in a desperate moment, e.g., when a consumer is trying to record or take photos at a child or grandchild's recital, basketball game or wedding.

The suite is being filed in California. Of course this problem could be pretty easily fixed if Apple would simply abandon its stingy 16GB storage bottom level.
