Apple admits to deliberately slowing older iPhones

Apple admits to deliberately slowing older iPhones

He also believes - like many other users - that it's just a ploy by Apple to get folks to buy the newest iPhone.

Apple on Wednesday said a software feature released past year makes your phone operate more slowly to offset problems with its aging lithium ion battery. Lithium-ion batteries become less capable of supplying peak current demands when in cold conditions, have a low battery charge or as they age over time, which... That means the device will unexpectedly shut down to protect its electronic components. Apple has admitted the slow down voluntarily the old iPhone models in order to extend their shelf life.

The practice was confirmed after users shared performance tests online, showing their ageing iPhones had considerably slowed down as they got older.

Apple has since introduced the feature to the iPhone 7 with the release of iOS 11.2-first made available earlier this month-and said it plans to continue to add support for other products going forward.

If you've ever felt that you iPhone is getting slower in its old age, you're not insane. Apple now admits that update slowed the phones down.

Technology expert John Poole has forced Apple to come clean on the real secret behind Apples marketing and sales success, of why customers are so eager to upgrade to the latest iPhone model, and the answer may surprise you!

Saturday , the high will be near 34 with mostly sunny skies and a north wind of 5 to 8 miles per hour , the weather service said. He said we're going to get a couple of weeks of cold weather and then get that kind of melting and thawing weather.

Apple has responded to the allegations on this subject on the site techno The Verge: "Our goal is to offer the best experience to our customers, both at the level of the performance and lifetime of their device".

Q: Why is this admission from Apple important?

Bogdanovich and Speas, represented by the Los Angeles-based Wilshire Law Firm, argued that Apple never asked them for permission to install this feature and did not give them the option to choose or bargain a way to turn off the feature.

Some Reddit users report that replacing their batteries has returned performance and CPU clock speeds back to normal. The shutdown protection's now been extended to the iPhone 7 range too.

Q: What has Apple said on the matter?

That's despite the fact that for most users affected, there would have been much cheaper solution available: They could have restored their Phone to full power simply by getting their battery replaced - which, when done by Apple, just costs $79.
