We all know very well that many have criticised the tech giant Apple for simply slowing down the old iPhones. However, now according to the latest reports, the tech giant Apple is being sued just after it admitted that it has slowed down the old iPhones intentionally.
Apple Is Being Sued For Slowing Down Older iPhones
A new episode of the soap opera that the tech giant Apple released a couple of days ago confirming that it had deliberately slowed down the old iPhones. From Cupertino, of course, the tech giant Apple defend that this allows them to offer the best user experience, maintaining the overall performance and life of the devices.
However, many have criticised the tech giant Apple for this rude act. Therefore, there are already two demands that the Californian company, of course, the tech giant Apple faces for deliberately slowing down the old iPhones.
It has always been a cry that the old iPhones began to work slower with the passage of time and the arrival of new versions of iOS. Many users thought that this was done intentionally to force them to buy a more modern device. At that time, they were just suspicions and it was complicated to really show that “something was happening”.
Apple confirms that it slows down old iPhones and faces lawsuits
However, everything took an absolute turn when the company, of course, the tech giant Apple confirmed the suspicions (in their own way). Affirming that its goal is to offer the best user experience, ensuring the best performance and prolonging the life of the devices, as the tech giant Apple went on to explain that lithium batteries lose efficiency over time. This makes them unable to respond to peak demand, so the device may not respond or shut down.
Therefore, they launched a change that affects iPhone 6, iPhone 6s and iPhone SE to smooth these spikes to prevent the device from shutting down. Now, they have done the same with the iPhone 7 with the update of iOS 11.2 and plan to continue doing it with the rest of the devices when they deem it necessary.
Hence, the tech giant Apple confirms that it slows down old iPhones, but not to force them to buy a new one, but “to offer a better user experience”.
That has not liked the users too much. Stefan Bodganovich was the first to file a lawsuit alleging that the tech giant Apple never asked for consent to deliberately slow down the device, in this case, an iPhone 7. In addition, this plaintiff stands out from the official version and says everything is done to force change old iPhone.
On the other hand, we have a second lawsuit against the company, of course, the tech giant Apple. This time in the city of Chicago and on behalf of a user who says that we are dealing with a “deceptive, immoral and unethical” tactic.
