Apple was fined by Italy's anti-trust watchdog in October a year ago for failing to give customers clear information about how to maintain or when to replace batteries, following complaints that the company used software updates to slow down their mobile phones.

Apple is now going to let iPhone users know when an iOS update is going to slow down their devices. The company later apologised and lowered the price of battery replacements for affected models to $29 from $79 (roughly Rs. 2,000 to Rs. 5,500).

They also allege that the firm failed to tell consumers that if they upgraded to a new iOS version, Apple would automatically install a feature that impacts the phone's speed and performance.
