Apple to pay $113m to settle iPhone 'batterygate'
Apple will pay $113m to settle allegations that it slowed down older iPhones. The deal is separate from a proposed settlement Apple reached in March to pay affected iPhone owners up to $500m in a class action lawsuit. In 2016 Apple updated software on models of the iPhone 6, 7 and SE - which throttled chip speeds on aging phones. Apple acknowledged its update reduced power demands after researchers found unusual slowdowns in 2017. Under the settlement, Apple did not admit to any wrongdoing or breaking any law.
