Apple facing yet another multi-state probe related to iPhone throttling
Apple is once again targeted in a multi-state consumer protection investigation over the highly publicized "batterygate" controversy.
Last week, technology watchdog Tech Transparency Project discovered that the Texas attorney general may file a lawsuit against Apple for violating the state's deceptive trade practices law.
Two months ago, Apple's $500 million deal to settle a series of class-action lawsuits involving the so-called iPhone slowdown controversy was approved by the U.S. District Court.
Users affected by Apple's throttling of older iPhones can now submit a claim to potentially receive around $25 per phone, following a court's decision to accept Apple's settlement.
