Apple settles iPhone slowdown case for $500m
Apple has agreed to settle a long-running class-action case in the US over allegations it deliberately slowed down older iPhones. Apple has denied any wrongdoing in the case but settled in part because of the cost of continuing litigation. The case dates back to December 2017, when Apple confirmed a long-held suspicion among phone owners by admitting it had deliberately slowed down some iPhones as they got older. The uproar prompted Apple to offer a cut-price battery replacement, which fixed the problem. Under the deal, Apple will end up paying out between $310m and $500m.
