Apple Acknowledges Taking Action to Slow Down Older iPhones
Apple Says It Does Indeed Slow Down Older iPhones As They Age
22 December, 2017, 01:10
Reddit users have noticed that Apple appears to be slowing down old iPhones that have low capacity batteries.
According to the spokesperson, the company released a feature previous year for the iPhone 6, iPhone 6s and iPhone SE that is created to "smooth out the instantaneous peaks only when needed to prevent the device from unexpectedly shutting down".
Currently, affected models are iPhone 7, iPhone 6, iPhone 6s and iPhone SE, with other models potentially receiving the same feature in the future.
Apple iPhone users for years have wondered why their phone seems to go slow, compared with newer models.
"(But) it is a trade-off.
It slows your phone down if it has an old battery or if you're in a place with extremely cold temperatures. Proof: My iPhone 6 was bought 3years ago and recently got really slow. You can't help but wonder whether Apple is deliberately sabotaging your old iPhone.

iPhones use lithium ionbatteries that don't hold their charges as well as newer batteries. The lithium-ion batteries are less able to respond to peaks in demand in case of cold weather, low battery charge, or aging with time, which may lead to an unexpected closure of the unit to protect electronic components.
"Our goal is to deliver the best experience for customers, which includes overall performance and prolonging the life of their devices", the company said in a statement to tech website The Verge.
One solution to a faster working iPhone could be purchasing a new battery rather than an entire new phone.
Once word of Poole's test results began to spread, Apple was effectively forced to issue a statement on the matter. Apple was forced to offerbattery replacements. So he plotted the kernel density of Geekbench 4 scores for the iPhone 6s on multiple iOS versions. iOS 10.2 turned out to be the version where the performance of the device showed signs of being throttled. Drain battery, charge, drain battery, charge - repeat.
On the other hand, there's a lot of negative reaction to this information, probably because people think Apple could manufacture higher quality hardware that doesn't see its peak performance decline quite so quickly. In the wake of Apple's admission, some customers are criticizing the company for not being more transparent about how it handles device performance.
