Where form meets function

After reports emerged that Apple was allegedly slowing down iPhones,  three pending lawsuits have been filed against the company.

According to CNET, the first lawsuit was filed on behalf of five people, in Illinois. According to a release statement from attorney James Vlahakis, the iPhone iOS updates are “fraudulently forcing iPhone owners to purchase the latest model from Apple.”

Since then, two more suits have been filed in the central and northern districts of California, which also allege that Apple purposefully misled users regarding issues to do with battery life in order to upgrade customers to the latest iPhone models.

Apple has consistently denied these allegations and released a statement earlier this week stating that any updates to do with battery performances are “to deliver the best experience for customers.” To read more on the report, visit the CNET site.

In other Apple news, the company announced an upgrade for its Air Pods in 2018.
