Apple Stock News: Senator John Thune Is Asking Apple For Transparency

Apple Stock News

Senator John Thune, a Republican lawmaker who chairs a key congressional committee that oversees tech issues, has sent a letter to Apple questioning the iPhone maker about the slow down of older iPhone models.

Apple is facing many lawsuits after the company slowed down the performance of the older iPhones. In response, the company started to offer discounted battery replacements for $29.

The Chair of the Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee is asking for transparency. Thune wants to know how Apple came to the conclusion to replace batteries for $29 or if the company ever considered making battery replacements free. He also wants to know if Apple considered offering rebates for customers who paid full price for replacing their batteries.

On the letter, Thune said that “the large volume of consumer criticism leveled against the company in light of its admission suggests that there should have been better transparency.”

Apple should answer Senator Thune by January 23.
