David Reiff, co-founder and vice president of uBreakiFix, a chain of electronics fix stores, says that battery life expectancy for some phones can be as low as 300 to 500 charging cycles, which means that some users may not make it through a year before their battery performance starts to drop.
Owners of iPhones have long said that their devices seem to slow down over time and that replacing the battery seems to boost performance. Both suits came a day after Apple confirmed what high-tech sleuths outside the company already observed: The company had deployed software to slow some phones.
The two California plaintiffs, Stefan Bogdanovich and Dakota Speas, are seeking damages saying that Apple's actions caused them to suffer "economic damages and other harm for which they are entitled to compensation".

It said it released the fix for iPhone 6, iPhone 6s and iPhone SE and later extended it to iPhone 7. That's not necessarily the case, however, as Apple has good reason to throttle performance if the alternative is random shutdowns.
James Vlahakis, an attorney representing the plaintiffs in the Chicago lawsuit, said he has been contacted by more iPhone users who say they suffered the same problem and is considering amending the lawsuit to include a request for Apple to provide battery replacements or offer refunds to consumers who purchased devices unnecessarily. The company disputes any statements that the sluggish iPhone activity correlated with a new iPhone release.
A year ago we released a feature for iPhone 6, iPhone 6s and iPhone SE to smooth out the instantaneous peaks only when needed to prevent the device from unexpectedly shutting down during these conditions.
Apple on Wednesday acknowledged rather claimed that the company does take some measures to reduce power demands-which can have the effect of slowing the processor-when a phone's battery is having trouble supplying the peak current that the processor demands. They allege that Apple engaged in "deceptive, immoral, and unethical" practices, reports Business Insider Friday.
