Apple hit with lawsuit for deliberately slowing down older iPhone models
Just days after Apple admitted to slowing down older iPhone models in an effort to conserve battery life, the Cupertino-based company was hit with a class-action lawsuit today. Filed by Stefan Bogdanovich and Dakota Speas, the suit claims that Apple's deliberate effort to throttle CPU performance on the iPhone amounts to "breach of contract." The suit, originally spotted via TMZ, also notes that Apple's behavior lowers the resale value of existing iPhones and underhandedly coerces iPhone owners to upgrade to newer models.
