Apple has been sued over allegations that the power flex cable in the iPhone 4 was defective. According to the lawsuit, Apple decided not to disclose this defect in order to sell more units. Debra Hilton has filed a class action lawsuit in San Jose, California on behalf of iPhone 4 purchasers. The lawsuit demands over $5 million from Apple.

As evidence for the lawsuit, Hilton cites posts on Apple's own forums, in which users have complained about the power button. Hilton also provides a YouTube video explaining how to repair the button and comments made by a self-described iPhone repairman that assert the power button is a common issue on the iPhone 4.

 

Apple has not yet commented on the lawsuit.
