Next iOS Update Will Disable Power Management Feature, Fix iPhone Performance

Users will soon be able to choose if they want their iPhone slowed or not JACK TAYLOR GETTY Users will soon be able to choose if they want their iPhone slowed or not

For those unaware, Apple was last month found to intentionally throttle down the performance of the iPhones with each iOS update, in order to keep the battery performance consistent.

"Apple is a success story that could only have happened in America, and we are proud to build on our long history of support for the USA economy", said Tim Cook, Apple's CEO. The move to reduce performance via iOS update 10.2.1 initially targeted iPhone 6, 6s and SE but have also been extended to iPhone 7 and 7 Plus as well.

"We deeply apologise for anybody who thinks we have some other kind of motivation".

After being surrounded by controversies and class action lawsuits regarding slowing down of iPhones due to poor battery health, Apple will now address this issue through software to retain user loyalty. Apple also offered battery replacement for $29, as an apology for not informing their users about slowing down of iPhone.

Cook's announcement came in an interview with ABC News, seemingly focused on Apple's tax reform announcements today.

Booker said the president disparaged immigrants in New Jersey who serve as entrepreneurs and service members. Wallace continued, "It is pretty shocking language and to say I don't recall seems impossible".

As we learned back at the end of December, Apple has been limiting the maximum performance of iPhones as the batteries within get older.

DigiTimes also reported that iPhone orders were down, although it also reported that orders for the new iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus had declined in Q4 2017.

Again Cook expressed "Our actions were all in service of the user-we can't stress that enough". Apple rejiggered its operating system to slow down phones with these older, weaker batteries so that they don't tax them and force a shut down.

Apple's next iOS update will include feature that lets users disable power management feature that slowdown iPhone performance.

We're curious, would you turn off iPhone throttling as your battery aged, if you knew you could suffer from unexpected shutdowns? What Apple is doing is scheduling Genius Bar appointments to bring the phone to have the battery replaced, but most local stores when we checked Tuesday were booked until next week at the earliest. The disable throttling option is expected to be released with their developer beta in February and it could be available as a final public release sometime in March.
