Another iPhone owner sues Apple after its slowdown admission
Following earlier speculation, Apple confirmed this week that it does slow down older iPhone models to account for battery wear. According to the lawsuits , the updates were "engineered purposely" by Apple to throttle down the speeds of older models.

After Jadha'v's meet with his family, Pakistan said that the issue of granting consular access to Jadhav will be decided on "at appropriate time".

Jadhav was arrested in March 2016, in Balochistan, Pakistan, over charges of alleged involvement in 'espionage and subversive activities for India's intelligence agency - the Research and Analysis Wing (RAW)'.

This is a narrative that the Pakistani army has maintained, though Indian has maintained that Jadhav was kidnapped by a section of the Taliban in Iran and sold to the Pakistani army.

It was also a freakish three-odd hours of theatrics by the Pakistani establishment, which first claimed Jadhav was getting consular access and then admitting he actually wasn't, after India called its bluff.
