iPhone Upgrade Program Members Sue Apple

As much as I hate lawsuits like this, I can't help but wonder what the hell Apple is thinking by not taking care of their loyal customers that actually pay to be first when it comes to upgrades. Any of you out there members of Apple's Upgrade Program?

The class-action lawsuit, filed in a U.S. District Court in California, claims that Apple gave higher priority to new customers’ iPhone 7 pre-orders over orders placed by members of the Upgrade Program. According to the lawsuit [PDF], Apple allowed the non-Upgrade customers to snap up the limited inventory of the new devices while telling members of the Upgrade Program to "check back later."
