Apple admits to slowing iPhones, you're not imagining it

Your old iPhone really is getting slower Apple admits to slowing iPhones, you're not imagining it

In a rare confession the tech giant Apple on Thursday reportedly issued a statement in which it has evidently admitted that it does slows down the performance of older phones, Thus confirming the long held suspicion by the iphone users.

"Apple's failure to inform consumers these updates would wreak havoc on the phone's performance is being deemed purposeful, and if proven, constitutes the unlawful and decisive withholding of material information", explained Sulaiman Law Group, which is representing the plaintiffs in IL. 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.

Apple says it's taking on the issue of older lithium ion batteries that sometimes fail phones. However, the lawsuit says: "Nobody from Apple customer support suggested that he replace his battery to improve the performance of his iPhone".

Apple is facing two class-action lawsuits filed by furious customers days after the company said it had intentionally slowed down older iPhones.

Poole also criticized Apple's quiet, behind-the-scenes power management.

Two class-action lawsuits have been filed in the United States against Apple, with one suit describing the practice as "deceptive, immoral, and unethical".




The lack of concern for battery performance our study highlights would be quite different if older iPhones just died throughout the day.

Depending on your stance, Apple's throttling may seem reasonable or pretty poor in that its premium-priced handsets have rather limited time running at full performance.

A second lawsuit against Apple, as reported by Chicago Sun Times, has also come into the limelight. But with its OLED display - which is brighter than an LCD display and requires more power to run - the iPhone X battery can take a beating with heavy use. The iPhone 7 was first launched in September 2016, and was subject to Apple's throttling mechanism in iOS 11.2.

"Our goal is to deliver the best experience for customers, which includes overall performance and prolonging the life of their devices", an Apple statement said.

The class-action lawsuit filed in IL claims, "the company purposefully and knowingly released operating system software updates to a number of generations of the iPhone in an effort to slow the CPU performance speeds of these devices".
