Apple admits iPhones slow down as they get older

The lawsuit has supposedly been filed by Stefan Bogdanovich, a Los Angeles man who is claiming that Apple's tactic of slowing down older iPhone models is making the lives of users who aren't willing to shell out the kind of cash needed for the newest devices hard. 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.

The practice was confirmed after users shared performance tests online, showing their ageing iPhones had considerably slowed down as they got older. What it boils down to is that iOS 10.2.1 and 11.2.0 introduced throttling for different devices, in theory to prevent random shutdown issues.

To say the least, the admission has called into question Apple's commitment to its customers.

"Last year, we have implemented a feature for the iPhone 6, iPhone 6S and iPhone in order to stabilize the peak energy when necessary, and to prevent the out-line of the device under these conditions".

The feature, which slows performance to demand less power, has been extended to iPhone 7 handsets with the latest iOS operating software and will be added to other Apple products "in the future", the spokesperson said. Then I used my brother's iPhone 6 Plus and his was. faster than mine? And millions of people have bought new phones for that very reason...

"Our goal is to deliver the best experience for customers". If you're going to slow down the phone over time, you should explain why it is happening, so people understand it is ultimately for their benefit.

"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 can result in the device unexpectedly shutting down to protect its electronic components", Apple said in a statement.

What Poole found is pretty strong evidence that Apple is indeed manipulating the performance of your old iPhone or iPad.

After older batteries struggled to keep up with iPhone 6s, the company released an update and offered limited battery replacements.

He claims Apple's tactic of slowing down older iPhone models causes users to suffer - specifically those with the 7 or 7s - and take a hit to their wallets. The system works by limiting power drain on older batteries, batteries with low charge and when in cold environments.

"From what I can tell, Apple slows down phones when their battery gets too low, so you can still have a full days charge", wrote Reddit user TeckFire.
