Apple’s admission to slowing down older iPhones isn’t sitting well with one California man … so he’s going after the tech giant on behalf of all his fellow outdated iPhone users.
A new class action suit has been filed by Stefan Bogdanovich, an L.A. man who, like millions of other people, uses an iPhone … but not an iPhone 8. He claims Apple’s tactic of slowing down older iPhone models causes users to suffer — specifically those with the 7 or 7s — and take a hit to their wallets.
Bogdanovich claims Apple’s decision to slow the operation of older phones to save battery life was never requested or agreed upon … and it lowers the value of their phones. He also believes — like many other users — that it’s just a ploy by Apple to get folks to buy the newest iPhone.
He wants Apple to stop slowing down older phones and get some payback for damages.
