A total of 63,767 South Korean iPhone users have lodged the country’s biggest-ever class action lawsuit against Apple for damages worth millions, authorities said on Friday.

Hannuri, a local law firm which represents the users, filed the class action lawsuit with the Seoul Central District Court against Apple and Apple Korea, the local unit of the iPhone manufacturer, reports Xinhua news agency.

The iPhone customers demanded the damages worth KRW 200,000 ($188) per plaintiff, or KRW 12.75 billion ($12 million) in total.

It was the country’s biggest-ever class action suit in history.

Around 400,000 iPhone customers originally sought to join the legal action, but the number fell in the course of verifying identification and offering necessary documents, according to the report.
