Apple informed the watchdog that the updates were made to extend the battery life of older iPhones like 6, 6s, and iPhone SE.
They argued that the iPhone could shutdown unexpectedly to protect its electronic components if they didn't.
However, Apple still agreed to pay the AED 100 million fine for the slowdown of iPhones.
