A class action lawsuit has been slammed against Tech Company, Apple by a Los Angeles man, Stefan Bogdanovich for slowing down the iPhone on purpose.
On Wednesday, Apple confirmed in a statement that they have used software to slow down the performance of old iPhone’s that may cause the lithium-ion battery to degrade over time and turn off completely.
The plaintiff, Stefan Bogdanovich claims that people who have older iPhone’s’ are distressed due to their old device value reduction which forces them to buy new device. However, the company made it clear that they were not slowing down the performance to encourage people to buy a new phone. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“Our goal is to deliver the best experience for customers, which includes overall performance and prolonging the life of their devices.”
“The maximum charge of the lithium-ion batteries in iPhones decreases over time, and tasks that require high CPU use deplete the charge even quicker. Slowing down the phones’ CPUs (and, by extension, speed) during those moments prevents the battery from dying completely.”
Bogdanovich isn’t the only one taking Apple to court over the iPhone slowing down. Five persons across Illinois, North Carolina, Ohio, and Indiana also filed a separate class action suit against Apple in a Chicago court over the same issue.
