Apple sued by regulator over refusal to service 'bricked' iPhones

"The regulator is accusing the U.S. tech giant of violating consumers' rights by refusing to service certain iPhones and iPads that were disabled by a software update.

Some iPad and iPhone users who used third parties to fix broken screens later received an error message after downloading an Apple software update, rendering their devices unusable, according to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission." link
