We all noticed our phones slowing down, And it's true!
It is called planned obsolescence. There have been two lawsuits filed in America.
Earlier this week, Apple confirmed what we all believed to be true, that it was intentionally slowing down its older models of the iPhone to ensure that apps would run smoothly with older processors and prevent crashing.
These lawsuits argue that
"Apple’s decision to slow the operation of older phones to save battery life was never requested or agreed upon,"
and that Apple took the measure to push people towards buying a newer model. The lawsuit alleges that Apple never gave users consent to slow down their phones, and were never given the option to choose if they wanted it to happen.
Apple has yet to issue a statement on the lawsuits.
This is not a lie, I bought iPhone 6S plus in Apple store on July 27, 2017 ( I have the receipt) Full price $649.00 plus tax. Apple was throttling my phone before I even bought it. Their lie about older batteries is bullshit. Trust in Apple gone. #iPhones— Sephmones@gmail.com (@NoSpeakDimocrat) December 21, 2017
"Hey, I have an idea. Lets put the batteries behind very thin glass so most people have to pay us to replace them. And then... get this... we slow down the phone if they don't pay us to replace them!." "HA HA HA" -Mafia #iphones pic.twitter.com/Oc7TrKjcuH— OlderGeeks.com (@GeekOnTheLoose) December 20, 2017
