Apple pays a fine of Rp. 1.6 trillion for deliberately making old iPhones slow

In 2017, Apple received a lawsuit from legacy iPhone users accusing the company of deliberately building slow devices. This is complained by users every time Apple launches the latest iOS operating system.

Apple usually never heed the accusations and claims of its users even though these complaints came from all corners of the world. But this time, Apple actually agreed and will be responsible to its users.

Apple is willing to pay a fine of 113 million US dollars or around Rp. 1.6 trillion to settle the case that iPhone users complained about .

Sanski in the form of a fine that must be paid by Apple is not the first time this has happened this year. In April, France fined Apple around US $ 27 million or around Rp.382 billion. They also asked companies to be more open about their practices.

In March, Apple is known to have paid 500 million US dollars or around Rp. 7 trillion to users who filed a report in a class action lawsuit against Apple.

If calculated, the total fine that Apple has paid for its mistakes this year is around US $ 640 million (around Rp. 9 trillion). Apple also had time to provide discounts and free replacement of old iPhone batteries that were already slow.

IPhone devices become sluggish every time Apple releases the latest iOS operating system update. They complained about the application that often crashes and the cellphone hangs .

Before agreeing to pay fines, Apple always avoided that the company deliberately made smartphones slow. But in the end, Apple said that it was done to keep the battery last longer.
