Apple confirms software updates affected the performance of older iPhones

Apple might be slowing down old iPhones to preserve battery life Does Your iPhone Suddenly Turn Off When It's Low On Battery? Apple Has Finally Explained Why

But now it's facing a class action lawsuit in the USA which alleges Apple has been "purposefully slowing down older iPhone models when new models come out" and "failing to properly disclose that at the time that the parties entered into an agreement". And this is the choice Apple made: let the phone just run at full speed and kill the prematurely aged batteries or slow down the phone so the battery would last longer. The two are hoping to turn the case into a class action suit, allowing American who owns an iPhone from before 2017 to get in on the resolution. However, the lawsuit says: "Nobody from Apple customer support suggested that he replace his battery to improve the performance of his iPhone".

If your old iPhone is slowing down and you think Apple's throttling could be to blame, you don't need to phone a lawyer. The company disputes any statements that the sluggish iPhone activity correlated with a new iPhone release.

Two Chicago-arearesidents are part of a lawsuit against Apple that claims the company's failure to explain its practice of slowing older iPhones to prevent problems with aging batteries fraudulently pushed consumers to upgrade to newer models.

Apple addressed the issue in November, announcing a free battery-replacement program for "unexpected shutdown issues". Nevertheless, he maintains that Apple does not fall into the category of insidious tech companies seeking to undermine users: "Such cynicism is understandable, but Apple is not Uber".

Apple has never released a device called the iPhone 7s.

Experts believe that there were certain other alternative methods that could have been applied by Apple to resolve the issue.

On Thursday, Apple was hit by two separate class action lawsuits, one filed in California, and another filed in IL.

The company said it did this not to force people to upgrade, but to stop iPhones from drawing more power from the battery than it's capable of, causing the device to suddenly shut off.

Stefan Bogdanovich and Dakota Speas have filed suit in the US District Court for the Central District of California, accusing Apple of intentionally slowing down older devices to promote the sale of newer models.

David Reiff, co-founder and vice president of uBreakiFix, a chain of electronics fix stores, says that battery life expectancy for some phones can be as low as 300 to 500 charging cycles, which means that some users may not make it through a year before their battery performance starts to drop.
