Apple slows down older iPhones, faces lawsuit

After admitting it deliberately slows down older-model iPhones, Apple faces a class action lawsuit.

    A class action lawsuit has been filed in the US against tech giant Apple after it admitted to deliberately slowing down older iPhones.

    Apple claimed it slowed down the older phones to reduce wear and tear on their batteries that can cause overloads and make the phones shut down.

    Critics argue it's a tactic to force customers to buy new devices.
