Apple is Facing 60 Lawsuits For Slowing Down iPhones
Apple is facing around 60 different lawsuits in slowing down older model iPhones.
The lawsuits are alleging that Apple slowed down older iPhones to get people to upgrade to newer models. Apple has said this is not the case and has explained why some handsets with degraded and old batteries were slowed down under specific conditions.
It looks like these multiple lawsuits could be consolidated into fewer lawsuits which would take place close to Apple’s HQ in California rather than all over the US.
Apple is releasing new software with iOS 11.3 that will allow users to turn this feature off. The update also comes with some other battery management features built in.
