It was not possible to cancel the penalty.
Apple was unable to reverse the decision of the Italian antitrust service to pay the company a fine for lowering iPhone performance after the iOS 10.2.1 update. The Italian Court of Appeal upheld the decision to pay a fine of $ 10 million.
Italian authorities fined Apple for deliberately slowing down the iPhone while critically lowering the initial battery capacity in 2018. Apple tried to challenge the fine in a court of appeal, but the claim was rejected.
According to the court order, Apple did not notify iPhone users about the introduction of the iPhone slowdown feature in iOS 10.2.1 properly. Thus, the company misled consumers.
Recall that starting with iOS 10.2.1, a feature has appeared on the iPhone that limits peak performance, provided that the battery capacity is critically reduced. Releasing iOS 10.2.1, Apple did not talk about the innovation, including in the detailed description of the update. Users themselves discovered the existence of the function. As a result of this, Apple apologized to users and within a year provided the opportunity to replace the battery at a large discount.
