Law Firm Sues Apple on Behalf of Nearly 64,000 iPhone Users
Apple’s legal trouble continues following the company’s acknowledgment of deliberate iPhone performance throttling, and this time a law firm is suing the tech giant on behalf of nearly 64,000 users.
Korean law firm Hannuri Law has filed a lawsuit at the Seoul Central District Court, seeking compensation for no less than 63,767 users after Apple slowed down their devices running on degraded batteries. This is the biggest-ever class action lawsuit in the country against Apple, The Korea Herald notes, and the firm wants Cupertino to pay $11.9 million in compensation, which means every user should get close to $200.
Apple hasn’t obviously commented on the lawsuit, but the company is facing similar legal disputes in other countries as well after it publicly admitted it slowed down its devices.
