Apple sued after it admits to slowing down older iPhones

Apple is now dealing with the recourse stemming from a self-inflicted wound as several class action lawsuits have been filed against the tech giant following an admission that it purposely slows iPhones as they age.

Plaintiffs Stefan Bogdanovich and Dakota Speas filed the lawsuit in the Central District Court of California.

"If you have an old iPhone with an old battery in it, Apple may be slowing down your phone via software so the phone doesn't automatically shut off someplace, or do something else wonky", Stern said.

"Our goal is to deliver the best experience for customers, which includes overall performance and prolonging the life of their devices", an Apple spokesperson said in response to an AFP inquiry. Also, a report from Strategy Analytics suggests that the iPhone X camera is the main enticing feature of iPhone X which made people upgrade to the X. The front optics made it more joyful in use with the Face ID which Apple introduced as the substitute for the fingerprint scanning and the Animoji's which is also one of the most friendly features of all.

"Apple purposefully declined to make these disclosures because it knew that consumers would, more likely than not, purchase a new device", the lawsuit alleges.

This turned out to be a huge disappointment as previously a render of the device indicated dual camera sensors at the front. Similar to most flagship smartphones from other brands, the Nokia 9 sports a dual-sensor setup for its main camera.

Apple was not immediately available for comment when contacted by CNBC.

"Corporations have to realize that people are sophisticated and that when people spend their hard-earned dollars on a product they expect it to perform as expected", he said.

Owners of iPhones have long said that their devices seem to slow down over time and that replacing the battery seems to boost performance. They argue Apple didn't have consent to slow their phones and that they are entitled to compensation. Their suit is not the only one against Apple since the company released its statement about iPhone battery speed. Following that, Geekbench founder John Poole did some performance testing on various iPhones running different versions of iOS.

At least two groups of customers sued Apple over the deterioration of their phones' performance.

Replacing an iPhone battery in-store costs $79, according to Apple.
