Italian authorities ordered the company to pay millions of euros.
Italian authorities fined Apple and Samsung for the deliberate slowdown of smartphones. According to the BBC, Apple imposed a fine in the amount of 11.4 million euros, and Samsung’s 5.7 million.
Companies are accused that they “committed an unfair commercial practice” deliberately slowing down your smartphones, which led to the fact that the productivity of smartphones fell sharply. On approval of the Italian authorities, users were forced to buy new smartphones.
“We have not produced software that reduced the performance of Galaxy Note 4. Conversely, Samsung has always developed updates that allowed users to get the best experience on the smartphones from all possible” – said in Samsung. The company argued that “disappointed” the decision of the Italian regulator and intend to challenge it.
Apple representatives this decision did not comment.
In late December, Apple released a formal appeal to the users, in which he apologized for that deliberately slowed down the work of the old iPhone to extend their work.
