France’s competition watchdog DGCCRF announced that Apple will pay $27 million fine due to an iOS update that affected the performance of iPhone 6, iPhone 7 and iPhone SE Models whose aging batteries could not handled spat in energy uses and customers were not given any update regarding it.
The software update issued in 2017 that is (10.2.1 and 11.2) which slow downs the performance of old iPhone. As we know due to update it introduces the new features for older devices, older batteries could not handled the shuffle up in energy used.Due to such peak in power the iPhone might get shut down abruptly.If we think technically it is correct but apple failed to inform it’s users that it was capping performance on some devices.
The company also apologized and introduced new feature “Battery Health” which allows it’s users to check the maximum capacity of your battery and if your iPhone can reached up to mark performance.
so this was the main issue here.Many users might have noticed that their iPhone get slower while playing, games for a instance. But they are not known to fact that replacing battery could fixed their problems instead of that some users might have brought new phones for themselves even though their old phones were working good.
France ‘s DGCCRF also noted that iPhone users cant revert back to previous version of ios, so due to this iPhone users had no other choice for improving their phone status. “Failing to inform consumers represented a misleading business practice using omission”,the French authority rights.
Apple accepted to settle by paying $27 Million fine and recognizing it’s wrong doing with a statement on its website for a month.
Apple also addressed that why people are saying their iPhone with older battery are running slower.
Because of a Reddit post and loose rendition of subsequent benchmark tests posted by Primate labs Joh Poole,”Apple throttles old iPhone” meme has taken a wrong direction again.As we know the social media is a very fast so this meme got viral affecting the reputation of Apple iPhone. This issue will also affects in its business. The essence, as it always is, is that Apple being fabulous and trying to force its users to upgrade their phones by making their older phones run slower.
According to my point of view according to rules it is correct but it will lead to loss of Apple iPhone sales so its loss for both user as well as it’s seller.so share your review about the same.
