Apple has released software updates in the past that slow down its previous iPhone models.

A “deceptive business practice by default”.

This is how a French regulator defined Apple’s practice of deliberately slowing down its older phones for which it imposed a millionaire fine.

The American firm was fined with 25 million euros (about US $ 27 million) by the Directorate General for Competition, Consumption and Fraud Prevention of France (DGCCRF).

Apple recognized in 2017 that slowed down some models ancient iPhone, although he assured that this was done in order to “extend the useful life” of the devices.
