APPLE was forced to apologise today after a teenager found that the tech giant was slowing down older iPhones.
Pupil Tyler Barney, 17, discovered that poorer performance was linked with the phones’ lithium-ion batteries when it took seconds longer to type on his iPhone 6s.
With the new iPhone X costing £999, customers fear they are being forced to upgrade to a later model.
But Apple bosses, while admitting they were curbing the performance levels of older devices, said they had now introduced software changes to protect the battery.
The Californian company issued a rare apology, insisting it was not trying to force owners to upgrade.
