KGG has filed a putative consumer class action against Apple on behalf of iPhone owners whose phones now suffer from slow processing and poor performance following recent Apple iOS updates, including significant lag times and delays in the launching of apps and interference with its texting and calling functions.
Apple recently reported that that the company’s 2017 iOS updates have, as had been suspected by some but not previously disclosed, slowed the performance of older iPhone devices, interfered with their normal usage and deliberately limited the battery power under certain conditions in an effort to protect the devices from the effects of battery degradation. Although Apple is now offering discounts on replacement iPhone batteries – the preferred remedy for battery degradation – many iPhone users have already installed recent iOS 10 and 11 updates which have negatively interfered with the ordinary use of their phones. Some iPhones have become so slow and dysfunctional that owners were compelled to acquire new phones.
The suit seeks to compensate consumers for their losses, including the loss of operation and functionality of their phones and the cost of acquiring new replacement phones.
