Apple Sued Over Slowing Down Older iPhones When New Models are Released

 

Looks like Apple's confession to slowing down older phones when newer models are released. Allegedly, they are doing this to preserve battery life for older models. A man in Southern California has filed a class action lawsuit against Apple claiming because they did not disclose this to customers, he is suing for damages and requesting they stop this practice.

A new class action suit has been filed by Stefan Bogdanovich, an L.A. man who, like millions of other people, uses an iPhone ... but not an iPhone 8. He claims Apple's tactic of slowing down older iPhone models causes users to suffer -- specifically those with the 7 or 7s -- and take a hit to their wallets.

Bogdanovich claims Apple's decision to slow the operation of older phones to save battery life was never requested or agreed upon ... and it lowers the value of their phones. He also believes -- like many other users -- that it's just a ploy by Apple to get folks to buy the newest iPhone.

He wants Apple to stop slowing down older phones and get some payback for damages.

If he wins, do we get checks for every phone we owned??! This could be a MAJOR payday!
