Apple, one of the world’s largest cell phone companies is getting multiple lawsuits over slowing down older iPhones.

For awhile now, Apple consumers have been speculating about Apple meddling with their devices.

According to Vanity Fair, “reddit sleuths noted that just after the battery on an old iPhone was replaced the device’s benchmark tests, which measure its processor speeds, saw an uptick in performance. Days later Geekbench, which runs a commonly used iOS speed test, seemed to confirm the theory.”

“Lithium-ion batteries become less capable of supplying peak current demands when in cold conditions, [when they] have a low battery charge or as they age over time, which can result in the device unexpectedly shutting down to protect its electronic components,” Apple said in a statement.

Apple has yet to say anything about the growing amount of lawsuits which has reached about 99.9 billion dollars. Meanwhile the consumers are being misled that their phone batteries are dying when it is Apple behind it.

“Apple breached the implied contracts it had made with the Plaintiffs and members of the proposed class and subclasses by purposefully slowing down older iPhone models when new models came out and by failing to properly disclose that at the time the parties entered into an agreement,” one of the recent lawsuits stated.
