Apple CEO Tim Cook noted in an interview that the company will update with a new feature that will allow you to prevent your from automatically slowing down performance as your battery ages, after for enabling that function without explicitly informing users.

"We don't recommend it", said Mr Cook, stressing that the company took the actions it did in order to help users prolong the battery so that their iPhone would be available when they needed it.

For years, Apple had to dispel rumors that it slows down older iPhones so that existing customers upgrade to the newest models.

Apple, of course, has advanced to the substantive justification of the practice, but that has not been able to soften impressions.

The two separate actions on Thursday come after more than 40 lawsuits in the United States and around the world, and after France launched an investigation into whether Apple's practice broke any of its consumer protection laws. He said, "And so we deeply apologise for anybody that thinks we had some other kind of motivation". The group also represents 120 plaintiffs in a separate civil damage suit filed earlier this month.

Authorities have been trying to fix a barrier that was supposed to keep sewage from flowing into the lake, depleting its oxygen. On what could have led to this fire, he opined that it could happen due to any reason.

It is unclear whether the South Korean government will act on the complaint, according to Reuters.

The Italian authority said the two smartphone makers are suspected of engaging in "a general commercial policy taking advantage of the lack of certain components to curb the performance times of their products and induce consumers to buy new versions".

iPhone users will be able to turn off the feature that slows their phone if the battery is dying with a new software update.

It's the latest sign of trouble for Apple over the power-management feature it introduced in iOS 10.2 and again in iOS 11 to counter unexpected shutdowns on iPhones with aged batteries.

On Dec. 28, a week after Apple first admitted to the slowdown, the company apologized and offered cheaper battery replacements. To make up for what it had done, Apple sliced 63% off the price of a battery replacement for the iPhone 6 and later, cutting the price to $29 from $79 for the remainder of the year. "This hasn't been done before".
