Apple slows down older iPhones, faces lawsuit

22 Décembre 2017

Apple on Thursday confirmed what some conspiracy theorists suspected, that it intentionally slows performance of older iPhones as batteries weaken from age.

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

Al Jazeera's Charlotte Bellis reports. However, the company admitted to addressing an issue with devices containing older lithium-ion batteries that results in unexpected shutdowns. Both the plaintiffs are the users of iPhone 7 and in a filing in the northern district of the state of IL they stated that "Apple purposefully and knowingly released operating system software updates to iPhone 5, iPhone 6 and certain iPhone 7 phones that slowed the performance speeds of the central processing units ('CPUs') of these devices".

Users of older iPhone models, such as the iPhone 6, iPhone 6S and iPhone SE might have noticed a slower performance after updates to the iOS.

The three lawsuits bring a variety of claims, including that Apple fraudulently concealed problems with batteries in the older phones, that its moves violated state consumer protection laws, and, in the Central District of California case, that the company trespassed onto consumers phones by interfering with the speed of their devices.

Apple was hit with a lawsuit Thursday alleging that it deliberately "slows down iPhone processors" in older models of the iPhone without the consent of the phone owners.

A year ago we released a feature for iPhone 6, iPhone 6s and iPhone SE to smooth out the instantaneous peaks only when needed to prevent the device from unexpectedly shutting down during these conditions.

Another iPhone customer, Emily Peguero, echoed Prozor's sentiments, telling ABC News, "I feel like Apple keeps coming up with new products and new products and slowing down the other versions so that you have to buy the new version".

Recent revelations show that there is a feature on iPhone that slows it down eventually.

Several tech websites said rather than splash out on new phones, users can get Apple to replace the battery for a $79 fee in the U.S. or €89 euros in Europe.

But the good news is, if you replace your battery, the iPhone will detect that the battery can handle processing peaks again and you'll see an instant boost in speed.
