iPhone has always been in the limelight for obvious reasons. While most of them in the past were due to its attractive features and its pooling price, the recent one is not for a not so good reason. It’s alleged to have deliberately reduced the performance of iPhones as their battery aged and a lawsuit has been filed against Apple.
It first gained the attention of John Poole, the founder of Primate Labs, when he couldn’t identify the reason behind the continuous deterioration in his iPhone’s performance. He then accumulated it with the battery life of the phone and the result was astonishing: as the battery grew old, the processor slowed down, affecting the overall performance of iPhones.
Apple Faces Lawsuit For Deliberately Reducing iPhone’s Performance
“Many iPhone 6s devices were shutting down unexpectedly, even after the battery replacement program (Which many people weren’t entitled to use). Because degraded batteries last much less and end up with a lower voltage.” Geekbench reported.
When the results looked more articulated and iPhone 5, iPhone 6/6S and iPhone 7 showed the same symptoms, Stephan Bogdanovich couldn’t take it anymore and filed the lawsuit. He alleged that the Apple is intentionally reducing the battery life to make iPhones feckless and thus selling new series.
“The lawsuit alleges tech giant for “deceptive, immoral and unethical” practices that violate consumer protection law.” Says a blog article of TechJuice.
Inasmuch aroused they are, the other people of the United States who has the similar experience will become a part of the lawsuit as they are expecting the compensation of the damaged phone.
One of the relaxing things is that the Apple itself has accepted having done it, “Last year we released a feature for iPhone 6, iPhone 6s and iPhone SE to smooth out the instantaneous peaks only when needed to prevent the device from unexpectedly shutting down during these conditions. We’ve now extended that feature to iPhone 7 with iOS 11.2, and plan to add support for other products in the future”. It says.
The Apple will definitely have to pay for making its user mad over its unethical act but we can’t foresee what and how much.
