    Apple will pay $113 million in a settlement for an investigation into its past practice of intentionally slowing down people's iPhones.

    Apple admitted to slowing phones down in 2017 and said it was to prevent old batteries from randomly shutting devices off, not to force customers to buy newer smartphone models, as some believed.
