The U.S. Department of Justice and the Securities and Exchange Commission are investigating Apple’s (NASDAQ:AAPL) slowing of older iPhone models, according to Bloomberg sources.

The question is whether Apple violated securities laws by not disclosing that an early 2017 software update could throttle older devices with old or malfunctioning batteries.

Apple later apologized for not communicating the information, offered discount replacement batteries, and promised to release a software update to make battery information more transparent.

The government has requested information from Apple but sources say the inquiry is in early stages.
