Apple will pay $ 500 million for the bad work of old iPhone

The company will have to pay compensation in the amount of $ 25 to owners of a number of older versions of iPhone in the USA.

Apple agreed to pay compensation of up to $ 500 million to owners of old iPhones, whose phones began to work slower after launching new versions of iOS, unian.net reports.

According to Reuters, Apple did not admit abuse, but agreed to pay compensation in order to avoid legal costs in this case. Apple will have to pay $ 25 compensation to owners of a number of older iPhone versions in the US.

This amount can be reduced or increased depending on how many people will have to pay compensation, but the total amount should not be less than $ 310 million. We are talking about the American owners of iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 6s, 6s Plus, 7, 7Plus and SE who have installed iOS 10.2.1 or later versions of the operating system, and about the owners of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus with iOS 11.2 and later.

After the owners of such iPhones installed a new version of the OS, their smartphones began to work worse, loading applications slower. Because of this, users, having decided that the smartphone is out of order, changed the battery in gadgets or bought new iPhones. As a result, Apple was accused of deliberately slowing down the old iPhone on new versions of iOS.
