Apple hit with new lawsuit over throttling iPhones — what you need to know

Apple has been hit with a third class action lawsuit in Europe, this time coming from Italy’s Altroconsumo, the country’s consumer protection agency, over what it calls “planned obsolescence” of older iPhones. 

It’s related to a controversy from a few years back when Apple admitted to intentionally throttling down performance of older iPhones in what it deemed as an attempt to save aging batteries. Apple actually called it a feature. Of course, many consumers saw it as the company artificially inserting pain points via software updates to coax users into upgrading.
