Apple is being sued for intentionally slowing down its older iPhones

Further information provided revealed that this feature was implemented on the iPhone 6, 6S and SE previous year during a software update.

IPhone users have begun racing to courthouses, infuriated by an Apple Inc software update that slowed down the operation of their smartphones. To find out what Apple has been up to, here is everything you need to know about the company slowing down your iPhone.

"Apple's iOS updates purposefully neglected to explain that its purposeful throttling down of older model devices and resulting lost or diminished operating performance could be remedied by replacing the batteries of these devices", the customers said in the Chicago lawsuit, filed Thursday.

This week, Apple Inc finally admitted that it is intentionally slowing down older models, but it does so for a noble objective: to prevent the high demands on the battery and processor to damage the phones' electronics.

New sanctions an act of war
Mission, there are almost 100,000 overseas North Korean workers, with about 50,000 in China and 30,000 in Russian Federation . North Korea has said the latest sanctions are tantamount to a complete economic blockade, according to Reuters.

The company said it added the fix a year ago to prevent shutdowns on iPhone 6, 6s and SE models, then added it to the iPhone 7 with plans for more devices in the future.

In short, what Apple is saying is that they are slowing down older iPhones to prevent them from over-exerting themselves and shutting down (to protect the internal components).

Apple has defended this fact as being used to "deliver the best experience" for customers, despite being considered to have been hiding this information for a long time. So what exactly is Apple doing here? The new software features would slow down the iPhone to prevent it from shutting down due to low battery life or cold temperatures.

The lawsuit, which was filed Thursday in U.S. District Court in Chicago and seeks class-action status, is one of at least three Apple is facing involving the intentionally slowed iPhones. 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.

Mr Poole said that most users expect that their phones will perform at the same speed regardless of how old their batteries are but that this was functionally not true.

Apple's disclosure came after iPhone users on Reddit reported that replacing batteries on older phones appeared to improve their phones' speed.

Next time, Apple should also be more transparent towards its loyal consumer base on what it plans to do that could in some way be deleterious to the performance of the iPhone.

It appears that this was done to reduce the random shutdown issues for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6S, which would see iPhones shutting off even when it said there was 30-40% charge remaining in the battery.
