Apple Under Investigation Following Mass iPhone Slowdown

Apple Under Investigation Following Mass iPhone Slowdown”

The agencies are looking into whether Apple may have violated securities laws, but have not yet determined that there was wrongdoing, according to a Tuesday report from Bloomberg News.

Authorities in France are in the midst of an investigation whether Apple violated laws protecting consumers in that country and lawyers in the US are pursuing a variety of class-action lawsuits on behalf of millions of consumers.

Spokespeople for Justice Department and SEC declined comment on the reports.

High-secret Australian govt information 'bought at second-hand store'
Nearly all of the files are classified, some as "top secret" or "AUSTEO", which means they are to be seen by Australian eyes only. The files detailed national security briefs, intelligence on Australia's neighbours and counter-terrorism operations.

"We have received questions from some government agencies and we are responding to them", the company said in an emailed statement. But it looks like the Cupertino-based tech firm is adopting the macOS update strategy as it is said to skip some new features in the upcoming "iOS 12" and focus exclusively on making it more stable release. And now more recently, Apple launched a total of three handsets: iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X (ten).

Late past year Apple admitted throttling the speed of the iPhone 6, iPhone 6s, and iPhone SE, something that naturally didn't sit well with consumers. The shares have retreated in the past week, but that downturn has been driven by concerns about lackluster demand for its high-priced iPhone X. That led to a huge internet freakout and accusations that Apple has been hobbling iPhones to trick users into buying new models.

"Even if Apple's actions were indeed only meant to avoid unexpected shutdowns in older phones. there should have been better transparency with respect to these practices", Thune wrote. The company also said it was launching features this spring that will allow users to see their iPhone battery's health, as well as a power management toggle. "Making iPhones last as long as possible is an important part of that", the company said.

Apple CEO Tim Cook did acknowledge the fact that Apple "should've been clearer" about their plans.

In late December, Apple apologized for handling the problem in such a manner and cut the price for batteries replacement in 2018 from $79 to $29 for anyone with an iPhone 6 or a later version.

Apple also reiterated that it did not release the update aimed at preserving battery life to make older phones obsolete and thus push new ones.
