  • Apple to Pay $113 Million to Resolve Claims Over iPhone Battery

Thirty-three USA states claimed that Apple had done this to drive users into buying new devices. This was reported by the owners of the new smartphones, and then the company itself acknowledged the problem.

California will receive $24.6 million of the total settlement, which includes injunctive terms to include clear disclosures on iPhones and Apple's website informing consumers when updates will affect processing performance and how the company manages battery performance issues.

The update claims to offer an optimized battery charging, especially for the Apple AirPods to slow the rate of battery ageing by reducing the time the AirPods spend fully charged.

Instead, the states said Apple benefited from customers - exhausted of slower, aging phones - purchasing new model iPhones.

According to AJC.com, the judgment announced on Wednesday brings closure to the class-action suit brought by more than 30 states. In addition to the fine, Apple also legally committed to greater transparency. "Big Tech companies must stop manipulating consumers and tell them the whole truth about their practices and products", said Brnovich in today's announcement. "I'm committed to holding these goliath technology companies to account if they hide the truth from their users", added Brnovich.

When people first started complaining that Apple was intentionally slowing down iPhones, the company denied the reports. Earlier this year, the company agreed to a $500 million class-action settlement to pay affected users.

Apple said these problems were causing sound quality issues when listening to audio from an iPhone.
