A new class action lawsuit against Apple alleges that the iPhone maker crippled iPhone 4s with the iOS 9 update and demanded more than $5 million in damages.

The new suit was filed with a New York district court. According to experts, Apple willingly advertised iOS 9 as backwards compatible with the iPhone 4s even though it knew about the potential issues the update will cause. As a result, iPhone 4s owners who have upgraded to iOS 9 were forced to either use an operating system that can’t be downgraded to iOS 8 or iOS 7 or spend hundreds of dollars on new iPhones that would better handle the operating system.

The lawsuit includes more than 100 members who complain of a poor overall iPhone 4s experience following the iOS 9 update.
