Apple is facing a lawsuit and that is because it made a statement outlining that it was slowing down aging iPhones. A significant number of users are disappointed with many taking the strong stand that it defrauded them. According to them, Apple did not do the right thing by moving ahead to slow the devices without issuing a warning in line with offering compensation for the poor battery performance.
About eight lawsuits were filed in a number of the federal law courts and the move was made in a week’s time from the moment the company launched a year-old software change. Most of the lawsuits filed in U.S. District Courts in California, Illinois and New York sought to reach out to a class-action to advocate for rights of the millions of the affected iPhone users in a nationwide scale.
It was on Monday when a rather similar case was lodged in an Israeli court and the matter is now starting to attract the attention of many around the globe. An email was send out to Apple and it sought to get the company to comment in relation to the matter. That was not possible after the phone company declined to comment.
The company’s spokesperson opined, “We acknowledge for the very first time in detail that operating system updates released since ‘last year’ for the iPhone 6, iPhone 6s, iPhone SE and iPhone 7 included a feature ‘to smooth out’ power supply from batteries that are cold, old or low on charge.”
On Thursday there was a lawsuit presented in a San Francisco court and it termed “the batteries’ inability to deal with the demand resulting from the processor speeds a major defect. The users of the device thought that it was dishonest on the part of Apple to proceed and mask the battery defect. According to them, Apple could have been more reasonable by taking the step to serve all users with a free battery replacement. But it is not yet time to rule out Apple. It might just do something to save its image.
