Apple goes to court again accused of shortening the life of iPhone

In Italy, the consumer protection group Euroconsumers has taken legal action against Apple. It is again accused of deliberately degrading the health of the iPhone’s battery, a practice also known as programmed obsolescence.

This is the latest branch of the scandal that broke out in 2017 and became known as “batterygate“Apple is accused of purposely compromising the battery health of the iPhone 6, 6S, 6S Plus and 7 trying to force users to buy a new device.

Complainants seek compensation of 60 million euros

The document brought before the court expects to reach a compensation of 60 million euros. This figure results from a monetary compensation of around € 60 for each of the users who were injured by the alleged planned obsolescence made by Apple.

iPhone 6S

This lawsuit is based on the belief that Apple did not discriminate against performance changes introduced with iOS 10.2.1. This version of the operating system changed the performance of the equipment where it was installed, resulting in faster degradation of its batteries.

Apple’s intention would be to make it clear to users that their devices no longer performed well. A way of encouraging them to buy a new iPhone.

Apple has already come to deny the veracity of these accusations

As expected, Apple was quick to react to the matter and to defend its practices. In statements made to the The Verge, American technology claims to have never done anything that intentionally compromised the health of its products.

“We never did – and never would – do anything to intentionally shorten the life of any Apple product or degrade the user experience to drive a upgrade. Our goal has always been to create products that our customers love, and making iPhones last as long as possible is an important part of that. “

It is not the first time that Apple has been accused of scheduled obsolescence

Programmed obsolescence means the intentional practice of any brand to make its product obsolete or non-functional. The objective is to force the consumer to buy the new generation of this product, thus increasing the company’s revenues.

Apple will have applied this concept by deliberately shortening the battery of its iPhone 6 and iPhone 6S through a system update. That earned him a huge controversy a few years ago and several lawsuits.

In the United States of America, Cupertino’s technology has already agreed to pay $ 500 million to a group that would precisely accuse it of programmed obsolescence. A lawsuit aimed at the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus.

In February 2019, Apple received news of the imposition of a € 10 million fine from the Italian authorities. Once again, the reason for this was the obsolescence programmed in the models mentioned above.
