The U.S. tech giant Apple Inc. and its subsidiary in South Korea are facing the first class-action lawsuit for purposely slowing older models of iPhones.

A civic group representing 150 iPhone users submitted an indictment to the Seoul Central District Court on Thursday, demanding that Apple pay 2.2 million won for each of them in compensation.

The legal action came after Apple admitted slowing older iPhone models to keep them run at an optimal performance and stop the batteries from dying.
