Apple agrees to settle "Batterygate" lawsuit for $113 million

Nov 19, 2020 18:20 IST

Apple has reportedly agreed to settle a lawsuit filed against it for $113 million, alleging that the firm had throttled the performance of older iPhone models in order to protect their battery life. A total of 34 states participated in the suit, which has resulted in Apple also having to now clarify how it manages battery health and power management on a user's device. The so-called "Batterygate" scandal first came to light in 2017, when users reported older iPhones slowing down when running newer versions of Apple's iOS software.
