"A reasonable consumer expects and assumes that, when he/she purchases an Apple Watch purportedly designed for active wear and use, the Watch screen will not spontaneously crack, detach, or shatter when it is being used within its normal and/or expected range of operation", the lawsuit states. Complainants are seeking $5 million in restitution for Apple's refusal to acknowledge and rectify the problem.

A new class action lawsuit claims that all models of the Apple Watch, from Series 0 to Series 3, share the same defect ... The company is now facing three class-action lawsuits over the butterfly keyboard used in the MacBook Pro.

Apple Watch hasn't been without fault.

It further alleges that Apple was aware of the defect from the start, and has a policy of refusing to honor warranty claims for the issue.

It's unclear what might be causing Apple Watch screens to detach, but the incidents could indicate expanding batteries putting pressure on the cases.

Apple did not immediately respond to a Fortune request for comment.

Every Apple Watch that Apple has made is defective. On or around March 9, 2018, Sciacca's Watch screen became detached from the body after he removed the watch from its charger, according to the lawsuit. "As a result of the Defect in the Watches and monetary costs associated with fix, replacement, or lost use of the Watches, Plaintiff and Class members have suffered injury in fact, incurred damages, and have otherwise been harmed by Apple's conduct".

"Apple knew that the Watches were defective at or before the time it began selling them to the public", claims [PDF] Sciacca, who wants $5m from Apple and is looking for others to join the lawsuit.

Apple Watch owners have always been complaining of swollen batteries. But then, in April this year, it expanded that additional coverage to include second-generation watches as well. Filed by Kenneth Sciacca of Colorado this week, the suit (which was originally spotted by Patently Apple) claims that the aforementioned design defect impacts all iterations of the Apple Watch and has been known to Apple for a few years now.

Those warranties have only been about swelling batteries and the back or front coming off; Sciacca is claiming that the same issue can cause screens to crack.
