After admitting that they sent out updates to purposely slow down older iPhones with outdated batteries last month, Apple is now being officially probed by the U.S. government.
According to a new report from Bloomberg , the U.S. Department of Justice and the Securities and Exchange Commission are investigating to find out whether or not Apple violated securities laws. Government officials have requested information from the company and are looking into public statements made by Apple representatives. The investigation is in its early stages, so it’s still unclear whether the Department of Justice will follow up with any kind of enforcement.
The Department of Justice is reportedly focused on the fact that Apple may have publicly misled investors about its products.

Nothing will happen, because Apple works FOR and/or WITH the government.
I bet Frazier uses all the emojis in his DM's. Guaranteed Frazier used the unicorn head in one of his last 5 messages, and it was most likely to another man. Facts.
People will still go and buy talking about but it's got face time and all the bitches got iPhones that's all I ever hear
iphone product just most user friendly of all, thats all
WHY DOES EVERYBODY HATE FRAIZER SO MUCH THE COMMENTS BE HAVING ME DYIN LAUGHIN
Good thing I have and Android (Samsung galaxy 6s+) LMAO
Frazier you know that jersey says EVE on the back of it nigga…
I have a iPhone 6 and it lives on the charger it's not a problem with the battery it's the updated software. Don't be a fool and think it's the battery it's not, by pay the $29 dollars for a new battery that's the money that there going to use to pay there Law suit. Believe it! the only thing Apple is going to do is reprogram the software and do nothing to the battery then ask them to replace the battery in front of you so you can see for yourself.
This beat thoooooough!

I’m not poor but for any broke people out there apple should make the battery replacement free cos they messed it up.
Omfg are you kidding… who the hell cares, I don’t care that apple slowed down our iPhones. They were only trying to make our phones last longer. Yeah sure they didn’t tell us that they were doing it but how many other companies done some shit like this and they didn’t get in trouble. You people need to STOP.

Apple is going to get your money regardless
