Hello Mi Fans!

As I'm sure most of you guys know, Apple recently admitted to slowing down older models of the iPhone in consideration of the degradation of the phone's ion-battery. If I'm not mistaken, their justification of doing so is in the general interest of users at heart, while other users remarked that it was a tactic to make users purchase another iPhone or Apple product.
Apple admits it deliberately slows down iPhones as they get older. Apple has admitted to intentionally slowing down iPhones as they get older, without notifying customers. ... However, the tech giant claims the move is not designed to encourage customers to upgrade to newer iPhone models.- Independent.co.uk
Would you ever think that companies such as Xiaomi, Samsung, Huawei or Oppo would engage in such practices as well? How do you feel about this issue? Leave your thoughts below!

I'm for the belief that this information should have been publicly available for all consumers to view, instead of keeping it a secret from consumers! What do you guys think!

Apple was Wrong for this Conduct.
Slowing Down Older Phones isn't right.
Now Let's see what the Law takes Action.
