Apple faces lawsuits in the US over slowed iPhones



Two class action lawsuits have been launched against Apple in the US following the tech giant's admission that it slows down older models of the iPhone as they age.

 
Apple has said that it did this to "prolong the life" of the devices and maximise diminishing battery power.


The lawsuits were filed in California and Chicago by groups of iPhone users representing others, who they claim have suffered "economic damage".


In the California court papers, Stefan Boganovich and Dakota Speas, who both live in LA, cite loss of use, loss of value and the purchase of new batteries as reasons for compensation, claiming that iPhone owners never consented to the "interference".
