Apple defends move to slow down older iPhones

Apple defends move to slow down older iPhones

Apple's performance slowdown, Poole said, adds an unexpected third option for users with older devices: instead of seeing their phones shut down unexpectedly or receiving a notification that their phone is in low-power mode to preserve battery power, they see their device performance slow without notification or explanation.

Two additional lawsuits were also filed Thursday in the Central District of California and the Northern District of California.

Both plaintiffs are owners of an iPhone 7.

A class-action lawsuit recently filed in California alleges that Apple never requested or gained consent from customers to "slow down their iPhones".

But no. Fast-forward a year - or perhaps crawl forward a year, depending on whether you've got one of those phones whose CPUs turned out to have been intentionally throttled by Apple in an effort to save their old lithium-ion batteries from power peaks that they couldn't handle.

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.

Nani to play a 'humanitarian fish' in 'Awe'
Nani is said to have lent his voice for the role and the makers unveiled the first poster of his role from the movie titled Awe . On the other hand, the film is also having the voice-overs of Nani and Ravi Teja for special characters.

It said in a statement that its goal is to deliver the best experience for customers. In the interest of user transparency, AppleInsider suggested to our sources that Apple implement a customer warning that the device is being throttled because of battery wear. The price is $79, plus $6.95 shipping, subject to local tax.

Ala Abdulla and Lance Raphael, both of Illinois; Sam Mangano, of Ohio; Ryan Glaze, of IN; and Kirk Pedelty, of North Carolina, all said they purchased new iPhones after earlier models grew sluggish. So far, however, users that were pointing out how Apple was willingly handicapping their devices to force them to upgrade had no facts to back up their claims.

"We think they could have extended the phones' life if (Apple) had been more honest", he said. In fact, majority observed a sudden spike in power once they replaced the ageing battery with the newer ones.

Since it is a Californa and Nationwide class action certificate, the lawsuit will cover everyone owning any older iPhone other than the iPhone 8.

Soon after news emerged that Apple admitted to slowing down iPhone performance as the devices' batteries age, multiple lawsuits have been filed against the company. It even said, the latest iOS 11.1.2 update adds this function to last years iPhone 7.
