Apple recently agreed to pay $500 million to iPhone users as a settlement in a lawsuit. The lawsuit accused the company of intentionally slowing down the performance of older iPhone models. Instead of using quotes, this article will provide a descriptive summary of the facts presented.

Apple agreed to this settlement in 2020 to avoid further costs and legal proceedings. While the company denies intentionally slowing down the phones, they have decided to settle to prevent any more inconvenience or negative publicity.

This is not the only lawsuit Apple has faced regarding this issue. In the United Kingdom, prosecutors are seeking a compensation of up to £1.6 billion.

The legal action against Apple in the United States dates back to 2017 when the company admitted to deliberately slowing down older iPhone models to encourage the purchase of newer ones. The performance of older models would decrease as the batteries aged.

To address the accusations of intentional slowdown, Apple agreed to replace batteries at lower prices to appease the situation. However, this resulted in further legal actions, and the initial settlement amount of $25 per user has since increased almost fourfold.

Apple recently lost a lawsuit in the United Kingdom, where they tried to block a similar case filed by users of iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and X models. This lawsuit involves approximately 24 million iPhone users.
