IPhone Users Sue Apple Over Slowing Down of Phones

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.

Stefan Bogdanovich and Dakota Speas from Los Angeles filed the first lawsuit with the US District Court for the Central District of California accusing Apple of interfering with their devices without consent.

The duo claimed that Apple never sought permission from them before slowing down their phones.

Both plaintiffs are owners of an iPhone 7.

Reddit users have noticed that Apple appears to be slowing down old iPhones that have low capacity batteries.

Still, some argue that even if Apple does so with customers in mind, keeping it a secret doesn't create a lot of consumer trust.

We've reached out to Apple for comment on the slowdown issues, and we'll update this article if we receive a response.

The admission played into concerns that Apple was stealthily nudging iPhone users to upgrade to newer models by letting them think it was the handsets that needed replacing and not just a matter of getting new batteries. Lithium-ion batteries become less capable of supplying peak current demands when in cold conditions, have a low battery charge or as they age over time, which can result in the device unexpectedly shutting down to protect its electronic components. Because those older batteries are incapable of handling peak current draws with the same effectiveness of iPhones with newer batteries and more efficient processors, they run the risk of the device powering down to prevent damage to its internal components.

After analyzing some reviews of Apple's iPhone X from various online retailers, a new report has been made by Consumer Sentiment Analysis (CSA) service at Strategy Analytics that states "Early Buyer Sentiment: iPhone X Consumer Sentiment High for Camera, Display, and Face ID." found that it is the prime feature of iPhone X which people liked the most and delivered a positive rating and reviews.
