Apple came out with a statement on Thursday confirming suspicions that software updates were being used to limit the performance of older iPhones, causing battery issues which would lead to devices shutting off suddenly. While it may be true that Apple really is trying to prolong the life of older devices with this feature, it's going to be hard dispel the initial thought that it's the company pushing people to upgrade every year - even if that's not the case.
Apple claims its aim in throttling iPhone speeds is altruistic; it wants to help its users get the most out of their older batteries.
Bogdanovich and Speas are also saying that they "suffered interferences to their iPhone usage due to the intentional slowdowns" in the lawsuit. Both plaintiffs are owners of iPhone 7 handsets as well as several previous generations.
Essentially, Apple says that at peak times of performance, older lithium-ion batteries are unable to handle demands, which results in the entire device shutting down to "protect its electronic components".
"Apple's failure to inform consumers these updates would wreak havoc on the phone's performance is being deemed purposeful, and if proven, constitutes the unlawful and decisive withholding of material information", explained Sulaiman Law Group, which is representing the plaintiffs in IL.
We know that batteries don't last a lifetime and they have a lifespan after which they need to be replaced. Just take it into a shop and have the battery replaced.
While describing Apple's actions as "deceptive, immoral, and unethical", the plaintiffs claimed that the company "needlessly subjects consumers to purchasing newer and more expensive iPhones when a replacement battery could have allowed consumers to continue to use their older iPhones" - a popular conspiracy theory doing the rounds for a very long time. On Thursday, Apple confirmed that, since previous year, they have added a throttling feature to iPhone 6, iPhone 6s and iPhone SE. "We've now extended that feature to iPhone 7 with iOS 11.2, and plan to add support for other products in the future", said Apple in the acknowledgement on Thursday. The company has long faced criticism from fix advocates for making its batteries hard for users to replace on their own.
The suit alleges that the slowing of old iPhones is meant to encourage users to upgrade, which isn't the case.
