Apple admits to slowing down phones, gets sued

2017-12-22, NV

On Wednesday Apple admitted to slowing down older models of Iphones, on Friday it finds itself being sued.
Apple had admitted using algorithms which slowed performance in older models. Apple’s explanation to do so was because when older phones were updated to new IOS’s the battery would not be able to withstand the new power, thus the performance had to be slowed down – to prevent the phone from shutting down.

However, Stefan Bogdanovich and Dakota Speas, owners of Iphone 7brought a class action lawsuit against Apple in California. They claim that Apple never requested consent from them to “slow down their iPhones.” They claim they suffered interferences to their iPhone usage due to the intentional slowdowns.
