Consumer rights campaigner, Justin Gutmann has filed a claim against Apple in the Competition Appeal Tribunal in London on behalf of up to 25 million UK iPhone users who used any of 10 different models of iPhone, from the iPhone 6 through to the iPhone X (and including the iPhone SE).
He is accusing the Apple of abusing its market dominance to engage in exploitative and unfair commercial practices when it misled iPhone users by applying a power management software update, first released in January 2017 in iOS 10.2.1, that throttled the performance of affected devices. It had the effect of slowing the processor’s speed at peak performance
He is seeking damages worth a total of £768 million. Affected UK consumers do not need to actively sign up to be part of the litigation (although they would need to provide their details at a later date if the claim succeeds and they wish to receive their portion of any damages.
Apple has already faced litigation over iPhone performance ‘throttling’ claims in France and Italy.
