Apple hit with complaint by South Korean consumer group

Apple chief Tim Cook has had a criminal complaint filed against him by a South Korean consumer group in the ongoing row over the slowdown of older iPhones. Advocacy group, Citizens United for Consumer Sovereignty, accused Apple of destruction of property and fraud. The group's Park Soon-jang said: "For the sake of its loyal fans, Apple has to take responsibility over the slowing iPhones." The group is also reported to represent about 120 plaintiffs in a civil damage suit against Apple which was also filed earlier this month. Like other similar legal fillings, the consumer groups' complaint is centred on Apple's release of iOS 10.2.1 in 2016, a software update that included a feature which affected the CPU for iPhone 6, 6s and SE models.
