Apple To Pay $133 MILLION Over Purposely Making Product Fail

Apple has agreed to pay mil­lions of dol­lars to 34 states over its con­tro­ver­sial pre­vi­ous prac­tice of delib­er­ate­ly slow­ing down old­er iPhones to extend their bat­tery life.

The com­pa­ny will pay $113 mil­lion to set­tle an inves­ti­ga­tion by states includ­ing Cal­i­for­nia and Ari­zona over how Apple was­n’t trans­par­ent about its iPhone bat­tery prob­lems that led to unex­pect­ed device shut­downs. Instead of dis­clos­ing the issue to con­sumers or replac­ing the bat­ter­ies, it pushed a soft­ware update in Decem­ber 2016 that impact­ed the per­for­mance of old­er iPhone models.
News of the prac­tice upset Apple (AAPL) con­sumers, ignit­ing what some called “bat­tery­gate.” Many believed it was an effort to encour­age users to buy new iPhones.


Big Tech is at war with you! They don't want you to see the truth.
