The Seoul high court ruled against Apple in a lawsuit filed by consumers over the “batterygate” controversy. The court ordered Apple to pay 70,000 won ($53) to seven iPhone owners who alleged that the company purposefully degraded the performance of older iPhones through software updates. The court said that Apple failed to notify consumers about the performance-limiting update and denied them the choice of whether to install it or not. The owners sued Apple for damages in 2018, and the lower court had also ruled in their favor. Initially, more than 62,000 owners joined the lawsuit, but only seven decided to go through the trial process. This ruling highlights the importance of transparency in software updates and the rights of consumers to make informed choices about their devices.
