Another day, another lawsuit. Well, lawsuits. Eight more lawsuits have been filed in various federal courts in the week since Apple opened up about its year-old software change, which slows down the performance of aging iPhones.
The cases — filed in California, New York and Illinois — seek class-action to represent iPhone owners nationwide and demand unspecified damages along with, in some cases, reimbursement from Apple. Last week the tech giant released a statement admitting iOS updates would slow down phones, but only to prevent devices with old batteries “from unexpectedly shutting down.”
