France fines Apple $27 million for slowing down iPhones

France’s consumer watchdog on Friday slapped Apple with a $27.4 million fine for intentionally slowing down older iPhone models with a software update. The action follows an investigation that kicked off in January 2018. This came after Apple acknowledged that its iOS software slowed down the performance of older iPhones to counteract problems found in ageing lithium-ion batteries.
