Apple agrees to pay up to us $ 500 million for the iPhone, made more lenses
The strategy of slowing down the iPhone in time, to force consumers to new purchases, could cost Apple up to $ 500 million. This is the maximum amount that the californian company has agreed to pay to close the class action, the u.s. began over two years ago. The agreement, according to what reported by Bloomberg Law, has been filed by the parties last Friday; it lacks only the approval of the judge of the court in the northern district of California, Edward Davila . The outcome should be obvious, since even the plaintiffs have defined as "a excellent refund".

specifically, the story dates back to December 2017 and June 2018, when a total of the deposited 66 class action regarding the delays registered on the old iPhone, as a result of a software update. Numerous independent tests confirm that the terminals that have a few years you may experience a lowering of the frequencies of use of the processors and thus performance. Apple in the end is forced to admit that with the introduction of iOS 10.2.1, on the iPhone6, iPhone 6s and iPhone IF you have implemented a function that protects against the risk of drive-off due to the transience of the battery. In practice, according to Apple, the energy peaks required by the software may not be sustainable from smartphones that are older, and then the only solution is to slow them down. The news is extended to the whole of the series 6 and series 7 (with iOS 11.2).

Then, in April 2018, the U. S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation decides to merge all the class action in a single lawsuit at the court of the northern district of California. The long legal confrontation was only resolved last week with an agreement that provides for a minimum payout of 310 million dollars and a maximum of $ 500 million, in relation to the number of devices affected. 30% of the amount, or at least $ 93 million, will be credited to the lawyers of the injured party, and up to 1.5 million dollars will be used for the costs of the proceedings. The plaintiffs of the class action will receive between 1,500 and 3,500 dollars, while the u.s. users who own the iPhone 6 series, IF and 7 purchased prior to December 21, 2017 will be entitled to a $ 25 refund. If it were to be exceeded, the overall sum of 500 million dollars, the refund may be reduced accordingly.

To detect that the case is exploded, in Italy. On October 24, 2018 the Authority for Competition, in fact, has punished Apple for 10 million euros. The investigation ended with a maximum edittale 5 million for not having properly informed the customer of the main energy demands of the new operating system and possible problems" and the other 5 million for not having "provided consumers with adequate information about some of the characteristics of lithium batteries, such as their average life and deteriorabilità, as well as about the correct procedures to maintain, check and replace batteries in order to preserve full functionality of the devices."

Apple today continues to expect for the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone IF iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus a dynamic management of the peaks of the performance to avoid the unexpected shutdown. "Starting in iOS 12.1, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X include this feature; the iPhone XS iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR include this feature starting from iOS 13.1", stresses the company. "The effects of performance management on these newer models may be less obvious because of their hardware and software more advanced". To check if the mode "slow" is active, it is sufficient to start the iPhone, go to "Settings", then "Battery" and "Battery Status". iOS explicit quality of the offered services: if maximum standard or not.
