Apple Wins Ruling in Suit Over Failed iPhone Messages

Apple Inc. won a ruling beating back a group lawsuit sought by a former iPhone user who claimed the company’s messaging system interfered with delivery of texts after she switched to an Android-based smartphone. Plaintiff Adrienne Moore said in her complaint filed in San Jose, California that Apple’s iMessage retains text messages sent from other users of Apple devices and wouldn’t deliver them to her Samsung phone running on Google Inc.’s Android operating system.
