  • Apple Sued Slow Your Roll ... Not Our Old iPhones!!!

That's despite the fact that for most users affected, there would have been much cheaper solution available: They could have restored their Phone to full power simply by getting their battery replaced - which, when done by Apple, just costs $79.

Apple releases new iPhone models annually, and sales of the handsets power its money-making engine.

Bogdanovich has gone on record in the paperwork as saying that the company's method of slowing performance in older phone models in order to converse battery life was never something that users ever had a say in or agreed upon in any way.

After Primate Labs, which makes an application that measures the speed of iPhone processors, disclosed data Monday that seemingly showed the iPhone 6 and iPhone 7 models perform slower as they aged, Apple addressed the claims two days later. Taking either approach would void Apple's warranty.

This iPhone was shiny and new in 2007, but phone batteries don't exactly age gracefully. "Lithium-ion batteries become less capable of supplying peak current demands when in cold conditions, have a low battery charge or as they age over time, which can result in the device unexpectedly shutting down to protect its electronic components", the company said. It would also allow owners to better monitor their hearts for irregular activities without having to buy a device just for that.

According to the tech company, iPhones are slowed down to protect the lithium-ion battery from becoming faulty.

"Our goal is to deliver the best experience for customers, which includes overall performance and prolonging the life of their devices", Apple said in a statement to CBS This Morning. The shutdown protection's now been extended to the iPhone 7 range too. "That is, your battery won't power your device as long on a given charge". But now the company is being sued for its admission.

If you want to get the most from your phone, try to look after it, don't use it in extreme heat, don't overcharge it - oh, and do NOT charge your phone in extreme heat, that's really going to kick it in the guts. Today, we'll look at that and other Apple Rumors for Thursday.
