A lawsuit has been filed against Apple this week by a man and women who claim that prominent iPhone XS and iPhone XS marketing images on Apple.com are far too deceptive to hiding. The prosecutor's advocate claims that they pre-ordered an iPhone XS Max unaware if there would be any "missing pixels", bezel or notch of any kind.
In 55-page lawsuits issued to Scribd (via Business Insider), the plaintiffs take a particular issue of how marketing material promotes a false pixel count thanks to chopping and rounded corners exclusive to XS and XS Max . In turn, this saves valuable screen assets.
The troubleshooting pays particular attention to the pixel number and resolution of the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max. An excerpt from the suit can be found below.
The alleged site is designed to encourage comparison s between Products and Suffixed Other phones. These comparisons are misleading because Products have fake screen pixel values that dramatically overrepresent the number of subpixels on the phones
The iPhone X product has been announced as having 2436 × 1125 pixels, but actually do not use real pixels with red, green and blue subpixels in each pixel. Instead, the product has only fake display pixels, with only two subpixels per fake pixel (2436 × 1125 × 2 = 5,481,000 subpixels), and it has no subpixels in notch on  at the top of the screen or in corners in the display area. In contrast, the iPhone 8 Plus has a higher quality quality than the product, with more subpixels than the product (1920 × 1080 pixels × 3 subpixels per pixel = 6,220,800 subpixels). Unlike the product, the iPhone 8 Plus does not hack the top of the screen or rounded corners on the screen area.
The process calls further iPhone 8 Plus as a superior device as compared to "cheaper phones" and iPhone XS.  The consumers, including the plaintiff Davis and Sponchiado, stood at the Succeeded [Apple] Marketing Campaign depicting Products as superior monitors than cheaper phones, including iPhone 8 Plus, which has real pixels on screen, a larger rectangular surface area than the Products, and sold for less than the price of Products
Filed in the Northern District of California, the dress is awaiting class-action status and while it remains to be seen if anything comes to fruition or not, it does not seem surprising to see that Apple is filing a lawsuit over some recently marketed. The company was immediately hit by criticism on Twitter back in September when the marketing images we exclusively leaked from the iPhone XS showed the misleading wallpaper.

New iPhone wallpapers are beautiful … And fool! ⚠️
The notch … It's still there
