For slowing phones, Italy fines Apple and Samsung

Samsung and Apple were accused of encouraging operating system updates for older phones which slows them down and eventually leading to force users to buy a new phone. Taking action on this, Italy’s competition authority on Wednesday informed that it has fined both the companies with €10 million and €5 million, respectively, as a "planned obsolescence" of their smartphones. The giants were being dishonest to users.
