Are you due compensation for the Apple iPhone ‘batterygate’ scandal?

Did you notice your older iPhone slowing down over time? If so, you might be one of the many users affected by the infamous “batterygate” scandal. 

What is batterygate?

Batterygate refers to the controversy surrounding Apple’s decision to slow down the performance of older iPhones through software updates. This issue first came to light in 2017 when users reported significant slowdowns in their iPhones after updating to newer versions of iOS. Apple later admitted that they had implemented a power management tool in these updates to prevent unexpected shutdowns in devices with aging batteries. 

Batterygate compensation 

Apple has faced numerous lawsuits worldwide and has already settled claims in the United States, agreeing to compensate affected users. Now, a similar case is underway in the UK, with lawyers seeking hundreds of millions in compensation for affected iPhone customers. 

Key points of the claim: 

  • Defective batteries. Apple is accused of selling iPhones with batteries that degraded faster than expected. 
  • Performance throttling. To address the issue, Apple issued a software update that slowed down older iPhones. This update was not clearly communicated to users, leading to accusations of deception. 
  • Avoiding recalls. Lawyers allege that Apple used this throttling method to avoid costly recalls and repairs.
