Analysis: Apple's practice of slowing iPhones as batteries age makes users think they need new phones

Apple Sued Slow Your Roll ... Not Our Old iPhones!!!

There might be a good reason for that, Apple confirmed to media outlets Thursday: The company is deliberately slowing down some iPhones, albeit for a good reason.

If you have an older Apple iPhone and think it seems to run a bit too slow, you're on to something.

Apple will replace your battery for free if your phone is under warranty, according to The Verge. That, on top of choices like new, backwards-incompatible charging ports and the removal of headphone jacks, makes people wary of planned obsolescence and being pushed to continually upgrade, and Apple's battery management measures aren't helping things. Proof: My iPhone 6 was bought 3years ago and recently got really slow.

Performance testing done with the help of specialized applications have confirmed that there is indeed a difference between two similar devices, one powered by a battery that is aging, and the other, with a new battery.

Yesterday, we reported on a new development in the long simmering story about older iPhones beginning to feel sluggish after installing a new version of iOS.

"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".

For the iPhone 7, scores were pretty much identical across iOS 10.2.0, iOS 10.2.1, and iOS 11.1.2.

Apple said it released software past year that makes those models operate more slowly to countervail problems with their aging lithium ion batteries, which can sometimes cause operational problems or cause phones to unexpectedly shut down.

No. 7 Overall Prospect Micah Parsons Picks Penn State
As a result of the infractions, Ohio State declared him ineligible for an unknown amount of time and will no longer recruit him. Parsons is rated the No. 4 player nationally and top Pennsylvania prospect per 247 Sports.

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.

"Our goal is to deliver the best experience for customers, which includes overall performance and prolonging the life of their devices". "This also means your phone might be very slow for no discernible reason". After running a series of tests on the 6S and 7, Geekbench concluded that the problem is widespread and unlikely to be the product of natural wear and tear on an aging battery. An intentional slowdown would function as a safeguard against the "sudden shutdowns" - an issue Apple acknowledged earlier this year - that plague older devices.

The original Reddit threat notes the performance of an iPhone 6S. While it's possible to do your own battery replacement, it's a delicate and complicated surgery at the risk of doing seriously expensive harm to the device.
