Is Your Iphone Not Working Like It Used To? New Lawsuit Alleges That Was By Design

Earlier this week a class action lawsuit was filed on behalf of Iphone users.  The complaint alleges that Apple purposefully put a firmware upgrade on the market, version iOS4, that was intended to decrease the functionality of the older model Iphones, the 3G and the 3GS.   Further supporting the Iphone owners’ claims is that Apple allegedly refuses to allow users to downgrade back to their old software and reinstall the outdated, but faster running, iOS 3.x firmware.

The lawsuit is interesting for the fact that with the new Iphone 4 on the market, owners of the old 3G/3GS models may be being swindled into purchasing a new, faster Iphone that would otherwise not seem worth it.  This notion, when coupled with the new deals being offered on the market providing store credit to purchase new Iphone 4s in exchange for old iphones, seems to present the framework for some sort of Iphone conspiracy.

As an Iphone 3G owner myself, I have all along just figured that as my Iphone got older, naturally it would run more slowly.  But maybe, as this lawsuit alleges, it should run just like new if it were not for Apple’s firmware “upgrades”.

What do you think?  Does your Iphone not run like it used to?  Is the latest firmware upgrade to blame?
