The company never gets rid of this case.

For two years, Apple has been known to deliberately reduce the performance of older iPhone models as a way to save aging batteries.

Still haunted
The news was not well received by users, and Apple ended up sending out a letter apologizing.

However, as a consequence of this incident, the company now has more than 60 group lawsuits against it worldwide. The fact that Apple chose to turn down the performance of older phones to save battery seems to haunt the company for a long time to come.

New lawsuit
Now another group lawsuit has been formally filed. Behind the lawsuit are a total of 18 people who accuse the company of "secretly" adjusting the performance of older iPhone models. Apple is further accused of doing this for profit. By making older phones slower, it is easy to assume that more upgraded to a newer model for the best performance.

In the lawsuit, which MacRumors has obtained and published, the act is described as "one of the biggest consumer scams in history".

Refusing to force customers to upgrade
Apple has previously refused to consciously shorten the life of a product:

“We have never - and will - intentionally do anything to shorten the life of an Apple product or make the user experience worse for helping customers upgrade. Our goal has always been to develop products that our customers love. Making the iPhone last as long as possible is an important part of it. "

In the aftermath of this incident, Apple chose to introduce a battery health feature, in an effort to offer better transparency to its customers. The feature was implemented in the iOS 11.3 update and gives users a better understanding of how the battery in the phone actually works.

According to MacRumors, the fresh lawsuit is likely to be merged with other lawsuits in Northern California for a faster legal process.
