While many iPhone users have experienced perceived slowdowns due to iOS updates over the years, there’s now proof Apple is throttling processor speeds when a battery capacity deteriorates over time.
APPLE has officially completed its apology tour over the iPhone throttling scandal and is set to give consumers a choice in the matter. The tech giant has faced a wave of criticism (and lawsuits) since it was reported that Apple was deliberately slowing down old iPhones to help ageing batteries cope with new features and smooth performance.
In the next update to Apple’s iPhone operating software iOS 11, users will be given new details about the health of their phone’s battery. Mr Cook said he does not recommend turning off the throttling feature when the update rolls out.
