Apple sued with series of lawsuits for deliberately slowing down the performance of older iPhones.
Customers from Illinois, Indiana, North Carolina, Ohio and California, claimed Apple fraudulently hid from customers from the fact that some iPhones exhibited lower performance.
Three lawsuits against Apple in federal court concerns iPhones older than iPhone 8.
According to the lawsuits;
“Apple knew that battery replacements would have improved the performance of the types of older devices owned by plaintiffs,” Abdulla Et Al v. Apple. Was filed on Thursday in an Illinois federal court.
Another lawsuit, Bogdanovich v. Apple, which was filed in federal court in Los Angeles, argued that Apple breached an “implied contract” and that the company “interfered” with private property (i.e., the already-sold iPhones) when it deliberately caused the slowdown of the central processing units of the devices.
A similar lawsuit, Keaton Harvey V. Apple, was brought in Northern California on Thursday, alleging that before the company admitted the slowdown, it “made deliberately misleading statements that were intended to conceal the nature and scope of that defect.”
Meanwhile, Apple is yet or did not respond to the comments.
