Apple agreed to pay $ 113 million to secretly slow down iPhones

The technology company Apple reached an agreement with 33 US states that sued it for the slowdown of its iPhone 6, 7 and SE phones, through a secret update that sought to hide battery problems and force the purchase of new models.

The legal action emphasized that in 2016 Apple had to replace the batteries or make the problem public.

Thus, the Californian firm must pay 133 million dollars to the group, led by Arizona, Arkansas and Indiana.

This payment is independent that achieved a collective action of consumers and that in March led the firm led by Tim Cook to compensate users in 500 million dollars.

In statements that quote the agency Reuters, Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovichm said “companies cannot be fake and hide things.”
