Apple Inc. reached an agreement with the United States to pay $113 million in order to settle allegations that the company purposely slowed down older iPhones to mask battery issues and sell newer devices.

"My colleagues and I are trying to get the attention of these Big Tech companies, and you would hope a multimillion-dollar judgment with more than 30 states will get their attention," Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich said commenting on the outcome.

Out of the total $113 million, the federal state of Arizona will receive $5 million, California $24.6 million, while Texas will be granted $7.6 million.
