Over the past month, many have been able to file lawsuits against Apple, accusing the company of deliberately slowing the work of smartphones. It's not enough that Apple has come to meet and began to change batteries on the iPhone at a discount: the majority of victims require financial compensation, and the amount of damage varies from several million rubles to a trillion dollars. This time, representatives of China's consumer association joined the list of dissatisfied people.
According to 9to5Mac, this week the association sent Apple a letter demanding to explain why the company slowed down the iPhone and how it is going to solve this problem. Despite the fact that the organization is not state-owned, it is respected by the people of China, as it often protects the rights of buyers.
The Chinese association has so far become the last, which appealed to Apple with a claim. Earlier, US House of Representatives John Thunn, who heads the Committee on Trade, Science and Transport, expressed concern about Apple's policy of slowing down the old iPhone models. The Communications Commission of the Republic of Korea is also unhappy with the situation and suspects the company of deliberately misleading consumers. Official representatives of the regulator have already sent to Apple Inc. request with the requirements to provide an explanation on the current situation, to draw conclusions based on the findings.
This week, a wave of lawsuits against Apple, related to the deliberate slowdown of the iPhone, reached Russia. The first lawsuits of Russian users to Apple will be filed in the district courts of Moscow as early as this week.
