Apple apologizes for iPhone slowdowns and offers $29 battery replacements

a.. Apple released a statement on Thursday addressing the company's
controversial decision to slow down older phones to protect battery
stability.
a.. Independent research and social media posts found some Apple phones were
more likely to be slow after certain software updates - but that was fixed
by new batteries.

Summary of relevant threads since my post of 12/20/2017 breaking this news:
o Years later, Apple finally comes clean on their intentional crimes!
<Loading Image...>

This is the thread that broke the news of Apple's secret, drastic, and
permanent CPU throttling due to inherently poor power-management design...
o *Report says Apple 'Powerd' code secretly slows your iOS device down to trick you into buying a new device*
<https://groups.google.com/d/msg/misc.phone.mobile.iphone/GdEtzzrc9F0/z57KTsmWAQAJ>

This thread today is an important update, thanks to JF Mezei:
o *Apple agrees to settle class action in US over throttling $500M*
<https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/misc.phone.mobile.iphone/BR4edQQisYg>

=== === === Quoted verbatim from that thread: === === ===
https://www.nytimes.com/2020/03/02/technology/apple-iphone-lawsuit-settlement.html

Quote: <<"Eligible devices include any iPhone 6, 6s Plus, 7, 7 Plus and
SE that ran iOS 10.2.1 or later, or any iPhone 7 or 7 Plus that ran iOS
11.2 or later. Eligible customers had to live in the United States, and
their devices had to run the given software before Dec. 21, 2017.">>

$25 per qualified phone.
=== === === Quoted verbatim from that thread: === === ===

See also this thread where Apple publicly admitted to the crime of
intentionally secretly lowering the life of essentially the same set of
iPhones: <https://i.postimg.cc/BQZ9hZg1/crime00.jpg>
o *Apple agrees to pay 25 million euros fine as Apple admits "Apple committed the crime of deceptive commercial practice by omission"*
<https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/misc.phone.mobile.iphone/l6gAjvW6aqQ>

See also this thread, where JF Mezei seems to be updating as news comes in:
o *Quebec class action goes ahead (battery gate)*
<https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/misc.phone.mobile.iphone/jmDdZewelrk>

Bear in mind, Apple essentially lied to Congress (as in "I didn't inhale")
when they said in their coverup that iPhone throttling wasn't "as"
necessary on the later phones, where, the facts prove Apple added
throttling in _every_ subsequent iOS release since!
o *Every iPhone CPU from the iPhone 6 to iPhone 7 were throttled, then iPhone 8 to iPhone X were throttled & now the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max & iPhone XR get throttling software*
<https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/misc.phone.mobile.iphone/Mzh1IvniDr8>

In addition, Apple clearly lied in their subsequent coverup, with respect
to the fact they secretly modified the release notes well _after_ the fact.
o *Evidence Apple cleverly manipulated iOS release notes on "power management" after the fact*
<https://groups.google.com/d/msg/misc.phone.mobile.iphone/KXhivHMvrlY/OuV1lgS8AgAJ>

Given the speeds were secretly cut in _half_ by Apple...
o Apple throttled your iPhone by cutting its speed almost in HALF!
<>

And given that Apple's design causes premature replacement of millions of
batteries yearly...
o *FACTS: Apple replaced 11 million batteries last year (normal replacement is ~1.5 million batteries per year)*
<https://groups.google.com/d/msg/misc.phone.mobile.iphone/8Vica_VqdT4/TzFfpZqVBwAJ>

How is prematurely replacing millions of batteries yearly a good thing for
the environment?
o *All new iPhones might be forced to have a removable battery (Android too)*
<https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/misc.phone.mobile.iphone/4Ja4FP5eL5s>

How is intentionally shortening iPhone life good for the environment?
--
Notice the Apple apologists _hate_ what Apple does so much that they'll
endlessly deny even well verified facts that Apple publicly admitted!
