Apple slapped with lawsuits for slowing down aging iPhones

Updated:1 year ago IST

New Delhi, Dec 28 (ANI): Apple is facing at least eight lawsuits, all of which claim Apple deceived iPhone users by slowing the processing speed of older models of the phone to compensate for poor battery performance. The class-action suits - filed in U.S. District Courts in California, New York and Illinois - seek to represent potentially millions of iPhone owners nationwide. It argues that Apple's software 'tweak' may have led iPhone owners to misguided attempts to resolve issues over the last year. Apple has not yet commented on the filings. Last week, Apple admitted operating system updates released since 'last year' for the iPhone 6, 6s, SE and 7 included a feature to quote, 'smooth out' power supply from poorly performing batteries. One of the lawsuits, filed Thursday in San Francisco, contends that Apple tried to MASK the battery defect. The lawsuits seek unspecified damages and in some cases reimbursement.
