Apple admitted to deliberately slowing down phones, which led to a class action lawsuit with a $500 million settlement.

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Tuesday is the deadline for iPhone owners to submit claims in a $500 million class action lawsuit settlement with Apple. The settlement was the result of Apple admitting it used software updates to deliberately slow down phones.

Apple said it took the action in order to protect phones with older lithium-ion batteries.

However, some iPhone owners believe it was a move to encourage them to buy newer, more expensive phones.
