Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) has been hit with a lawsuit filed in the Bay Area's Federal Court over storage issues related to iOS 8.

According to The Mercury News Silicon Beat Blog, the lawsuit alleges that Apple “doesn’t inform users just how much storage its new operating system will eat up – and then prods them to buy more space through its iCloud service.”

“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,” plaintiffs allege in the complaint.

According to the report, “iOS 8 can take up as much as 23.1 percent of the advertised storage capacity on Apple gadgets, but few users realize that when they make their purchases.”

Apple recently traded at $111.32, down 1 percent.
