Apple Reportedly Fined For Slowing Down Old iPhones

According to BBC, Apple has been fined 25 million euros (£21m, $27m) for deliberately slowing down older iPhone models without making it clear to consumers.

The fine was reportedly imposed by France’s competition and fraud watchdog DGCCRF, which said consumers were not warned.

In 2017, Apple confirmed that it did slow down some iPhones, but said it only did so to “prolong the life” of the devices. Apple said in a statement that it had resolved the issue with the watchdog, BBC reports.
