Of Course Apple Is Getting Sued Over The Old iPhone Throttling Fiasco

Naturally, the blames go to the iOS, since the iPhone gets slower and the iOS version gets higher.

It said it released the fix for iPhone 6, iPhone 6s and iPhone SE and later extended it to iPhone 7. The company stated that this feature started with iOS 10.2.1 and most recently came to the iPhone 7 with iOS 11.2.

IPhone owners from several states sued Apple Inc. for not disclosing sooner that it issued software updates deliberately slowing older-model phones so aging batteries lasted longer, saying Apple's silence led them to wrongly conclude that their only option was to buy newer, pricier iPhones. The reports are particularly troubling because any perceived slowdowns by iPhone users might tempt owners to upgrade their entire device instead of replace the battery.

Past year after users reported their phones suddenly shut down, even when the phone displayed as much as 30% of battery juice, Apple scrambled to release an update.

In other words, older iPhones tried drawing in more power than the battery was capable of, causing it to suddenly shut down.

To prove Apple was right about the battery being the culprit, some users who have had older batteries replaced said they've seen improved benchmarks after replacing their batteries.

An estimated 5 to 20 percent of people are expected to get the flu this year, depending on the severity of the season. The department says the flu was expected to increase in Kansas and it likely has not peaked in the state yet.

This week Benjamin and Zac discuss the iMac Pro launch, using Amazon Echo and Alexa with HomeKit products, the fake Cuphead game that appeared on the App Store, Apple throttling older iPhone batteries, iOS 12 and macOS 10.13 cross platform apps, and the Apple Watch New Year's Challenge.

However, replacing an older iPhone with a new battery doesn't necessary "guarantee" improvement in speed.

Perhaps that's one of the reasons Apple iPhones do not allow replaceable batteries, unlike other Android phones at the initial stage.

Apple design of handsets makes it borderline impossible for people to change batteries themselves.

According to latest news, Apple is literally slowing down older iPhones and the same has been confirmed by the company officials.

Batteries would receive different types of punishment from gentle users and insane 3D game users. Both lawsuits are claiming the same thing, that Apple did not have user consent to slow down their phones. The problems with peak current draws can also occur when batteries are cold or low on charge.
