Apple Hit With Another Lawsuit Over Throttling Of Older iPhone Speeds

Apple has been hit with a second lawsuit regarding its throttling of older iPhones to conserve battery life. Five customers have filed a federal lawsuit in Chicago against the tech company for what they’re calling “deceptive, immoral and unethical” practices that violate consumer protection laws, reports the Chicago Sun Times

The suit was filed by two Illinoisans along with Ohio, Indiana and North Carolina residents, who had a range of models from the iPhone 5 to the iPhone 7. They claim that Apple’s iOS updates “were engineered to purposefully slow down or ‘throttle down’ the performance speeds” of the iPhone 5, iPhone 6 and iPhone 7.Check out the first lawsuit here.
