While a second lawsuit, filed by five plaintiffs in the Northern District of the State of IL, accused Apple of deliberately keeping power management features a secret in an effort to persuade customers to upgrade to newer devices.
California residents Stefan Bogdanovich and Dakota Speas filed the class action lawsuit. They argue Apple didn't have consent to slow their phones and that they are entitled to compensation. In a press release, Atlas stated that the "iOS updates, plaintiffs claim, were engineered with this very goal in mind-fraudulently forcing iPhone owners to purchase the latest model offered by Apple". The other argues Apple participated in deceptive business practices.
Apple is now dealing with the recourse stemming from a self-inflicted wound as several class action lawsuits have been filed against the tech giant following an admission that it purposely slows iPhones as they age.
Still, some argue that even if Apple does so with customers in mind, keeping it a secret doesn't create a lot of consumer trust. The reports are particularly troubling because any perceived slowdowns by iPhone users might tempt owners to upgrade their entire device instead of replace the battery.

Lithium-ion batteries become less capable of supplying peak current demands when in cold conditions, have a low battery charge or as they age over time, which can result in the device unexpectedly shutting down to protect its electronic components.

On Wednesday, Apple admitted it slows down older iPhones because of battery problems which can cause iPhones to shut down without warning. The women went to an Apple Store to report the issue, and the staff attributed the issue to a "faulty TrueDepth camera", so they offered a replacement.
