Following Apple’s admission yesterday that it has used power management features to improve battery performance and avoid surprise shutdowns for some older iPhones, MacRumors reports that two California-based iPhone owners have served Apple with a class-action lawsuit.
According to the original report on TMZ, two people from Los Angeles, Stefan Bogdanovich and Dakota Speas, who are both represented by Wilshire Law Firm, have filed a lawsuit with the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California in which they allege that Apple deliberately slowed down their iPhones when newer models were released.
“Defendant breached the implied contracts it made with Plaintiffs and Class Members by purposefully slowing down older iPhone models when new models come out and by failing to properly disclose that at the time of that the parties entered into an agreement.”
The two plaintiffs have owned several older iPhones and said that they had noticed that they slowed down when new iPhone models were released, and that they didn’t get a chance to consent to this.
