Apple is shelling out $113 million to settle a lawsuit over the so-called “Batterygate” scandal.

In 2017, Apple admitted to intentionally slowing down older models like the iPhone 6 and 7. 

While they said it was to preserve battery life, many accused the company of doing it to push users to buy a newer phone.  

“Big Tech companies must stop manipulating consumers and tell them the whole truth about their practices and products,” Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich said in a statement.

“I’m committed to holding these goliath technology companies accountable when they conceal important information from users.”

The $113 million is in addition to the $500 million settlement reached in March over a similar issue – which ended in Apple offering a $25 payout to affected customers.

Last quarter, Apple reported more than $26 billion in iPhone revenues.
