Apple CEO Tim Cook Sued Over Deliberate iPhone Slowdowns
Apple has already been sued nearly 50 times already over the iOS update that slowed down iPhones with degraded batteries, and now the CEO of the company himself is sent to court by a South Korean consumer group.
The Citizens United for Consumer Sovereignty accuses Apple of “destruction of property and fraud,” according to a report from Reuters. While it’s not clear why the advocacy group is going after CEO Tim Cook himself and not after Apple, their complaint is the second legal action they start this month, after another civil damage suit filed in early January and involving 120 customers.
“For the sake of its loyal fans, Apple has to take responsibility over the slowing iPhones,” Park Soon-jang, a representative of the consumer group, was quoted as saying.
