We all know that all companies can be corrupt. Thus, it is not surprising to see this coming through Apple ©. Everyone before this has complained about slower phones prevalent throughout the older models of the iPhone, and it was just a theory that Apple purposefully slowed the older models down to persuade users to buy newer models.
