Apple has been forced to admit in the face of overwhelming evidence that it has deliberately slowed down its older iPhones models to keep them running longer.
The tech giant issued a statement on Thursday, saying that it has used software updates to limit the performance of older phones that may have battery issues.
Clement Manyathela spoke to Stuff magazine editor-in-chief, Toby Shapshak.
