Apple has lost an appeal in Italy and will have to pay a fine of € 10 million due to the slowdown of old iPhone

Back in 2018, Apple was fined in Italy in the amount of € 10 million. This was the result of a scandal with a decrease in iPhone performance. Apple quickly appealed the decision, but new court decisions indicated that the company had lost the appeal and the € 10 million fine remained in effect.

In 2018, an Italian court ruled that Apple did not properly disclose performance change information implemented in iOS 10.2.1. As part of this update, new performance management algorithms for iPhone with aging batteries were introduced. As a result, owners of older iPhones experienced a noticeable drop in the performance of their devices. Following an investigation, the Italian antitrust authority fined Apple € 10 million and accused the company of “unfair commercial practices.” And now this decision was upheld by the Italian Court of Appeal.

It is noted that the findings of the initial investigation were correct in that the changes in device performance due to battery conditions should be immediately reported to iPhone owners. Apple implemented these changes without disclosing information about them to users in the iOS 10.2.1 release notification. And this is “unfair commercial practice” and a violation of article 22 of the local consumer code.

We add, later, Apple allowed iPhone owners to turn off the performance reduction feature on devices with old batteries that partially lost their original characteristics as a result of chemical aging.

For the first time, users began reporting a noticeable decrease in the performance of the iPhone 6 after the release of iOS 10.2.1 in January 2017, which fixes problems of spontaneous shutdown. In the same year, but already in December, users of the popular Reddit forum, based on personal observations, came to the conclusion that a worn-out battery could be the reason for a significant decrease in iPhone performance. A week later, John Poole, founder of Primate Labs, which created the Geekbench benchmark, provided further evidence in favor of this version. At the end of 2017, Apple admitted that it was slowing down the old iPhone for the sake of “the best experience”, and the company planned to do the same with other devices. Apple later agreed to pay up to $ 500 million in compensation for the deliberate slowdown of older iPhones. .post-facts {margin: 20px 0 15px 0; padding: 15px 0 15px 23px; margin-bottom: 0; border-top: 1px solid #ddd; border-bottom: 1px solid #ddd; } .post-facts li {list-style: none; position: relative; } .post-facts li: after {content: ""; display: block; width: 8px; height: 8px; background-color: # 40b8f2; transform: rotate (45deg); position: absolute; left: -20px; top: 7px; } .post-facts li + li {margin-top: 4px; }
