After a dull story with the slowdown of old iPhones on Apple filed lawsuits. Large, small, serious and not serious. Perhaps the loudest claim came from Israel.
what It happened
This is the first collective lawsuit against Apple. AND the amount of the claim is very serious - 125 million dollars. By view of Apple fans in Israel, the company did not care about obligations to customers, that the most common software update can adversely affect the work honestly bought a smartphone. By view of the plaintiffs purpose of Apple neither never care for users, and banal desire to sell more tubes.
What the history with slowing iPhones?
Lithium-ion battery packs with time lose capacity because of what a smartphone can badly " hold " the charge, quickly sit or turn off ahead of time. Therefore, in Last year, Apple decided to cheat and at iOS 10.2.1 update has taught the 6th- generation iPhones to reduce the processor's frequency to avoid peak power consumption and prevent premature disconnection of the smartphone. The patch worked pretty neat and specific changes in the frequency of the processor can be traced only in synthetic tests. Note on his eye is virtually impossible. AND all would be nothing if would not Apple I did not mention this fact.
