Two Israelis have filed an over $120 million (roughly Rs. 760 crores) class-action lawsuit against Apple a week after the maker confirmed that it is deliberately slowing down iPhone models with old batteries to avoid the devices from shutting down.

According to a report in Israeli newspaper Haaretz late on Monday, the suit filed here argued that the company breached its basic duties toward users by failing to disclose that ‘innocent’ software updates would negatively impact their phone use.

The claimants said that the software updates impaired their ability to browse the web, check email and use various applications.

“There is no doubt that information about the device slowing is important, and cardinal, and users had the right to get (that information) from Apple before deciding whether to install the software updates,” the lawsuit was cited as saying.
