LAWSUITS INCREASE AGAINST APPLE
Since news broke that Apple
deliberately slows down the processor speed of iPhones as the smartphone gets older, Apple has now been sued three times in various federal courts nationwide. Allegations contain essentially similar facts: over a certain time period iPhones show lower performance and Apple does not reveal this fact to owners. In our own view, the complainant has a point when he claims : “If customers had been notified by Apple – or any of its technical/customer service support centers that a battery replacement would have improved the performance of the above devices, a consumer would have gone for battery replacement rather than purchasing new i-phone,” – stated in one of the lawsuits, ( Abdulla et al v. Apple ), registered on Thursday in a federal court in Chicago.
