We all know that Apple has been doing this for years. Surprised that they are being sued only now. I moved out of Apple ever since they slowed down my iPhone 3G with iOS 4.2
Apple just want to fools people for buy new iphone and they get money....if their not get so much money from ifan their wil sue another company for stupid reasons to get money.....but as many time i talk to iuser they don't believe that because they said apple is good company even they phone are under warranty but still have to paid hefty of money to repair......in my observation 95% icrap that i met most of them don't know about tech....that's why they always get fool by apple hahhahahahaha so sad....and ifan will reply you are blablaabla...because icrap are stupid.....hahahahahhaha so funny

Give it up iusers. Koh is going to dismiss the case like the iMessage SMS issue.
i belive that person got that idea of filing a lawsuit against apple from an android user, since for android phones once your phone receives an update it will perform much better...
Just upgrade but its not that simple for iOS users because a lot of them aren't as tech savvy as Android users so they assume buying an iPhone 4S and a cheap price in 2015 is a good idea.
Mahant, 30 Dec 2015My Lumia doesn't, still works like a charm!Being a windows phone it never worked properly to begin with
Mahant, 30 Dec 2015My Lumia doesn't, still works like a charm!Probably it's not 3-4 years old. Probably you are not installing apps and updates that much to make it wear fast enough. And probably you are among those who are fine with anything. There are people with Pentium V, 16 MB RAM and Windows XP saying it works like a charm.
regs, 30 Dec 2015that's the way emmc work. it tends to significantly slow down with time. it's not just iphone.... moreOh really? I did not know that EMMCs have the intelligence to identify whether latest version of IOS is installed in your old device and slow down the moment it is installed, and not slow down if your device continues to run older version of IOS.
No Fan Boy...!, 30 Dec 2015It's true...! My Friend's 4S after updating to ios 8 , it became really slow , and then after... moretell your friend that my friends's friend has had the same problem with his best friend's iPhone that sadly both friends de-friended and are now the worst ennemies ever. Now friend, no pho's before bro's thats the rule !
People have become so obcessed with "updates" that they no longer believe their phone is working if it doesnt get updated. Thats the mentality nowadays and even arguments of poor sales rep. Why care for an "update" as long as your phone performs 100% ? to bring trouble ?
Eske Rahn, 30 Dec 2015Well then they should not offer the update, or if they do
a) Add a warning that updating will... moreWell said. As I can't speak for others, I will share my own experience. I got ipad air about 2 years back. It was super smooth with IOS 7, with occasional lag due to low RAM (just 1 GB). Then I updated it to IOS 8, without having any knowledge about Apple's tactics. It just became unstable - frequent restarts of OS on its own, app crashes etc. With further patches the situation improved, but it was never the same super smooth device it was with IOS 7.
Having seen how IOS 8 turned out for my ipad air, I decided not to upgrade to IOS 9. Now, I am living with a flawed device, with occasional app crashes (luckily for me OS restarts are not there anymore). I don't have any other choice to go back to IOS 7 by any means which would make it damn good as it was when I bought it.
strad_aosp, 30 Dec 2015I guess I'm playing devil's advocate this time. Has anyone considered the fact that the iPhone... moreOne moment, let me take my old 2009 Macbook out of the closet and update it to El Capitan, then sue Apple for how slow and troublesome it runs.
It's the American way; you're sued if you do, sued if you don't. Or is it sue or get sued? Or sue or die trying? Ah whatever, probably all three.
I don't think it's a bad business practice. sometimes it is needed. why would anyone buy an apple phone again if update slows down the device ?. they don't actually forced user to buy a new phone. it's users decision.
but it will be so bad if GSMarena get a threatening mail from apple against this post saying they will stop giving review phone
