Apple faces more scrutiny over iPhone slowdowns in South Korea, Italy

Apple CEO Tim Cook

In that update, the company tweaked the iPhones 6, 6s and SE to instead slow down the processor when the voltage dropped.

"I have that faith - that it will be used for great goal for the country", said Cook, "whether that's infrastructure or education, or what have you, that will further supply jobs in the U.S". Earlier this month, France's consumer fraud watchdog said it is investigating Apple for planned obsolescence, which is illegal in the country.

"We will tell somebody we are reducing your performance by some amount in order to not have an unexpected restart, and if you don't want it, you can turn it off", Cook said in the ABC News interview.

In an interview with, Cook discussed a number of recent announcements by Apple, including their plan to invest $350 billion in the US economy over the next five years and how President Trump's tax plan will help the USA economy. "Maybe we should have been clearer as well, and so we deeply apologize for anybody that thinks we had some kind of other motivation".

"For the sake of its loyal fans, Apple has to take responsibility over the slowing iPhones", Park Soon-jang, an official at the advocacy group told Reuters by phone on Friday.

It is unclear whether the South Korean government will act on the complaint, according to Reuters.

Apple also announced a future software update that will allow users to check on their iPhone's battery health.

iPhone battery health has been a hot topic since Apple admitted to purposefully slowing older iPhones in December. For 2018, Apple has dropped the price of battery replacements to $29, down from $79. "This hasn't been done before".
