Apple Is Reportedly Being Sued After Slowing Down iPhones

Published

on

After reports emerged that Apple was allegedly slowing down iPhones,  three pending lawsuits have been filed against the company.

According to CNET, the first lawsuit was filed on behalf of five people, in Illinois. According to a released statement from attorney James Vlahakis, the iPhone iOS updates are “fraudulently forcing iPhone owners to purchase the latest model from Apple.”

Since then, two more suits have been filed in the central and northern districts of California, which also allege that Apple purposefully misled users regarding issues to do with battery life in order to upgrade customers to the latest iPhone models.

Apple has consistently denied these allegations and released a statement earlier this week stating that any updates to do with battery performances are “to deliver the best experience for customers.” To read more on the report, visit the CNET site.

In other Apple news, the company announced an upgrade for its Air Podsin 2018.

PUMA Unveils Game-Changing Fit Intelligence Technology

Published

on

PUMA today announced its latest footwear technology. Dubbed Fit Intelligence (Fi), it is the successor to AutoDisc, which launched just two years prior.

According to the German sportswear giant Fi “is designed to automate, fine tune, and adjust performance fit for PUMA footwear.”

With Nike building on its auto-lacing technology with the Adapt BB and adidas forging ahead with its accelerated footwear production at its SPEEDFACTORY locations, PUMA looks to bring its own, game-changing technology to market.

The first Fi footwear to launch is a running shoe that employs a micromotor that powers a cable lacing system. Simply gesturing up or down on the forefoot Fi module tightens or loosens the lacing system. Additionally, it comes with a smart sensing capability that adapts to the shape of the foot of each wearer.

Using an app, sneakerheads can monitor, adjust, and fine tune their Fi-equipped footwear.

“We have created a product that speaks to the future of sport which is life in motion. It’s fast and changing all the time,” said Charles Johnson, PUMA’s Global Director of Innovation.

Fi is the latest step in PUMA’s continued attempt to push the boundaries of performance and lifestyle product. In 1968 PUMA debuted the first laceless sports shoe with Velcro™ straps and followed that up in 1991 with the first cable closure, seen on the PUMA Disc.
