Apple Admits Deliberately Slowing Older iPhones — Here’s Why

Apple Admits Deliberately Slowing Older iPhones

Why is actually my iPhone slow?

Do you also ask This specific question again along with again?

Well, the biggest conspiracy theory floating around through years of which Apple deliberately slows down performance on your older iPhones whenever the company is actually about to launch the next edition of its flagship to push its sale is actually TRUE (at least partially).

Apple has finally admitted of which of which does indeed intentionally slow down older iPhone versions, without notifying its customers, though the company claims the move is actually not intended to encourage customers to upgrade to newer iPhone versions.

Instead, Apple says of which is actually a feature—implemented on the iPhone 6, 6S along with SE last year during a software update, along with on the iPhone 7 in December with the Discharge of iOS 11.2—to protect against unexpectedly shutting down of older iPhones due to aging batteries along with prolong their lifespan.

Last year we released a feature for iPhone 6, iPhone 6s along with iPhone SE to smooth out the instantaneous peaks only when needed to prevent the device through unexpectedly shutting down during these conditions,” the company said in an official statement to Reuters.

We’ve currently extended of which feature to iPhone 7 with iOS 11.2, along with plan to add support for some other products within the future.

According to Apple, the issue resides in iPhone’s battery, along with not in its processor. The performance of lithium-ion battery used in iPhones degrades over time, which could result in damaging the internal components of the device.


Therefore, Apple intentionally throttles the performance of iPhones of which have older batteries, batteries with low charge or of which are cold, in an attempt to protect their components.

The above statement by Apple came in response to a blog post published earlier This specific week by Toronto-based firm Geekbench developer John Poole, who analyzed the performance of iPhone 6S along with iPhone 7 over time.

Poole expected the battery capacity to decrease as they age, yet processor performance to stay the same. He found of which an iOS update rolled out to fix a ‘sudden shutdown’ issue was to blame for the decreased performance.

“Users expect either full performance or reduced performance which has a notification of which their phone is actually in low-power mode,” Poole wrote in a blog post published Monday (18th December).

“This specific fix creates a third, unexpected state. While This specific state is actually created to mask a deficiency in battery power, users may believe of which the slow down is actually due to CPU performance, instead of battery performance, which is actually triggering an Apple introduced CPU slow-down.”

Apparently, This specific latest Apple’s revelation sparked an outcry among Apple fans.

Although the company was not playing a bad trick to push the sale of newer iPhone versions by slowing older ones, Apple should show a bit more honesty in a relationship with its customers who call themselves Apple fans.
