Apple has recently admitted to intentionally slowing down older iPhone models to prevent the devices from shutting down due to old batteries.
The sudden shutdown problem became widespread among iPhones in late 2016, forcing Apple to issue a software fix that had the net result of slowing the phone somewhat with an old, cold or low-charged battery, the company said.
After iPhone users expressed online that their devices seemed to be slowing down, AppletoldCNBC that the phone's battery is the reason. Apple has not commented on the lawsuit.
Both suits came just a day after Apple confirmed what some people already suspected - that the company had intentionally slowed the performance of older iPhones as batteries weaken from age. Of course not, Apple's intentions are to improve user experience.
"Plaintiff is informed and believes that Apple was aware of a defect in his affected iPhone at the time he purchased a new one, and not only failed to disclose what it knew, but made deliberately misleading statements that were meant to hide the nature and scope of that defect", reads the complaint. While a second lawsuit, filed by five plaintiffs in the Northern District of the State of IL, accused Apple of deliberately keeping power management features a secret in an effort to persuade customers to upgrade to newer devices. Because Apple was not transparent, it's natural for people to suspect it of deliberately crippling their devices to get them to buy new ones.
Last week, the blog Primate Labs, a company that makes an app for measuring the speed of an iPhone's processor, has reportedly published data that appeared to show slower performance in the Apple's iPhone 6s and iPhone 7 models as they aged.
Now, if buying a new iPhone is too expensive for you (because a contract-less iPhone 8 costs S$1,148, by the way #justsayin), there is a cheaper alternative: replace the battery. The only possible way that one can do is to replace the battery via official Apple service centre.
