Apple iPhone Lawsuit Challenges Throttling Practice
Audet & Partners, LLP is investigating Apple iPhone lawsuit claims specifically on behalf of current or past owners of iPhone models prior to iPhone 6 that Apple violated their consumer rights by intentionally slowing down their devices without providing notice of this practice to iPhone owners.
In December 2017 Apple for the first time admitted that a recent version of its iOS operating system for iPhones forces a slowdown in the iPhone operating system. Apple has offered a justification for this practice stating that the slowdown is necessary to prevent unexpected shutdowns of devices with lower battery power.
Though Apple has now offered a reduced charge for battery replacement from $79 to $29 that would presumably eliminate the need for automatic slowdown by the operating system, it has done so only for owners of iPhone 6 and subsequent models. If you own an iPhone 5 or older, you are not provided any remedy by Apple for its intentional slowdown of your device.
If you now own, or have owned in the past, an iPhone 5 or earlier model, you are urged to contact a class action attorney at Audet & Partners, LLP for a free case evaluation.
