New Lawsuit Claims Apple Slows Down Older IPhones On IOS 9

A recent lawsuit is demanding $5M in damages from Apple for intentionally slowing down performance of legacy iPhones. The plaintiff claims that Apple has been engaging in deceptive business practices of purposely slowing down 100 members’ iPhone 4S’s.

After performing the upgrade in software, these iPhone 4S’s have apparently become so bogged down that they have become unusable in day-to-day conditions. Both first and third-party app loading delays are significantly longer with reported freezing and crashing as well.

This bogging down of software performance is assumed to encourage users to upgrade their recent devices to newer iPhones.

The lawsuit continues by also claiming unaccurate advertisement from the installation notes for the recent update. While these notes mention faster performance, enhanced security, longer battery life, and recent app features, these same notes lack a warning of possible compatibility problems on older devices like the iPhone 4S.

The same lawsuit is aimed at Apple’s ecosystem saying that rather than upgrading to another phone OS, Apple’s business structure of apps and music is more likely to haged people from jumping ship to avoid losing the investments of money spent on apps and music.
