Apple Accused Of Slowing Down iPhones After Recent iOS Updates

Again, yep, again.

Apple has been accused again of slowing down a bunch of their iPhone models after they recently released updates.

The Spain Consumer Protection Organisation has sent a letter to Apple accusing the company is slowing down some of their old phones, which includes iPhone 8, iPhone XS, iPhone 11 and iPhone 12.

The letter says that the updates iOS 14.5, 14.5.1, and iOS 14.6 updates have slowed down the phones.

The Spain Consumer Protection Organisation said in the letter that Apple is purposely slowing down iPhones.

They are now asking the tech giant to compensate the affected consumers.

iPhoneros, a news agency in Spain, was the first one to report the news on the internet.

The letter was sent out with the hopes of establishing a dialogue with Apple and look for a way to compensate affected consumers.

What would happen in case Apple does not respond with a decent explanation? Well, they are planning to file a lawsuit.

They said in the letter:

The letter sent aims to establish a dialogue with Apple to find a way to compensate its consumers. Whether Apple does not respond properly, other actions could be taken in the national courts to enforce consumer right.

The letter does not detail user complaints, however, the letter did said that the 3 updates recently released by Apple have damaged consumer devices, which have caused performance issues along with processing speed to drop dramatically.

They also said that battery drains faster after the 3 updates.

Altroconsumo, Deco Proteste, and Test-Achats have also taken part in the letter that was recently sent out.

The thing is, this is not the first time something has been reported like this.

Last month, users of Apple devices have reported severe batter draining issues after they updated their devices to iOS 14.6.
