Apple Sued For Intentional Slowing Down Older iPhones

Some users of the popular iPhone devices recently came out to accuse Apple of slowing down their phones after a period of use and suprisingly, rather than coming out to refute the claims Apple actually admitted to doing what it was accused of.

Apple stated that because of the degradation of lithium-ion batteries over time, the measure was put in place to prevent phones from shutting down suddenly and to protect their internals. The software updates, according to Apple, would prolong the lifespan of batteries.

The statement by Apple may turn out to be a disaster, as angry customers have continued to express their anger at the company. According to TMZ, a class action suit has been filed against Apple by Stefan Bogdanovich. He claims that Apple’s action of slowing down older iPhones causes customers to suffer, especially those with the iPhone 7 and 7s.

Stefan Bogdanovich is unhappy that the company never requested permission from customers before going ahead with the plan. Stefan claims that slowing down older models reduces the value of the phones. Stefan also alleges that slowing down the phones is a tactic to encourage customers to buy the newest models. Bogdanovich is requesting damages and wants Apple to stop slowing down older iPhones.

Some iPhone users have threatened to ditch their iPhones for Android phones, but we all know that Apple fanboys are one of themost loyal customers in the world and most likely stick to their iPhones.
