Apple will pay $ 113 million to settle a lawsuit that argued that the tech giant was purposely slowing down older iPhone models.

33 states in the US argued that Apple used the tactic to force your consumers to buy new devices.

Millions of people were affected when their iPhone 6 and 7 and SE models slowed down in 2016. The scandal came to be called “batterygate” because it had to do with battery life.

The company declined to comment, however, it had previously said that mobiles had been slowed down to preserve the life of old batteries.
