Apple Sued Over Slowed iPhones

Israelis sue Apple for slowing iPhone Apple Sued Over Slowed iPhones

The tech giant essentially confirmed a long-held conspiracy theory that Apple is deliberately limiting the speed of the older-gen iPhones.

Apple responded by saying that previous year it released a feature for iPhone 6, iPhone 6s and iPhone SE to smooth out the instantaneous peaks only when needed to prevent the device from unexpectedly shutting down during these conditions.

Plaintiffs Stefan Bogdanovich and Dakota Speas filed the lawsuit in the Central District Court of California.

Apple has been the talk of the internets these past couple of days because they finally confirmed our suspicions and admitted to slowing down older iPhone models on objective.

A similar lawsuit was filed Thursday in Los Angeles. The suit alleges Apple violated consumer fraud laws.

In the 1st T20I as well at Cuttack, they return with even better-reading figures of 41/6 from their eight. It was the 15th over that Kuldeep changed the course of the game, picking up all of his three wickets.


The company's statement came after a recent Reddit post of an iPhone 6S user who posted photos of Geekbench's performance test, which shows an increase in phone's performance following a battery replacement.

Since it was discovered by many that Apple's Face ID can be fooled by a family member who has a strong resemblance to an iPhone X owner, Apple might not want to take a single chance that a daughter who looks just like her mom, or a son who is the spitting image of his dad, hijacks a Face ID approval, and turns it into an unapproved shopping.

"Apple purposefully and knowingly released operating system software updates to iPhone 5, iPhone 6 and certain iPhone 7 phones that slowed the performance speeds of the central processing units ('CPUs') of these devices", said the plaintiffs in a filing in the Northern District of the State of IL. For $79, iPhone owners can have Apple officially replace the battery and should see previous phone speeds return. The company stressed that this function is needed to extend the life of the devices. "This is a consumer protection action seeking injunctive relief and damages arising from Defendant's unlawful failure to inform consumers that updating their iPhone 6, 6S, SE or 7 (the "Legacy Devices") to iOS 10.2.1 (and/or later to iOS 11.2) would dramatically and artificially reduce the performance of the Legacy Devices", the complaint reads.

"Instead, Apple appears to have obscured and concealed why older phones were slowing down".

"Corporations have to realize that people are sophisticated and that when people spend their hard-earned dollars on a product they expect it to perform as expected", James Vlahakis attorney for the plaintiffs told the Chicago Sun Times.
