iPhone 4S Performance Settlement

Sami Fathi:

Apple has agreed to settle a long-lasting six-year class-action lawsuit that accused it of knowingly slowing down iPhone 4S devices following the iOS 9 update in 2015, agreeing to pay some iPhone 4S owners who had experienced poor performance $15 each for their claims.

The update was marketed as making the iPhone “faster and more responsive” but, at least on that hardware, it did the opposite. Alas, after updating iOS, there is no way to revert. This settlement has got to be a win for Apple—such a small payment and after delaying for so many years.
