Apple admits slowing older iPhones; check proof and facts!

However, something has been backfiring Apple and people are bothered about the dame. So naturally they went and did what any angry American would do: sue.
Earlier this week, Apple came under fire for allegedly slowing down old iPhone models intentionally.
Last year, Apple introduced a feature to "smooth out" spikes in demand for power to prevent iPhone 6 models from shutting down due to the cold or weak batteries, according to the California-based company.
Apple releases new iPhone models annually, and sales of the handsets power its money-making engine. "We've now extended that feature to iPhone 7 with iOS 11.2, and plan to add support for other products in the future".
The sudden shutdown problem became widespread among iPhones in late 2016, forcing Apple to issue a software fix that had the net result of slowing the phone somewhat with an old, cold or low-charged battery, the company said.
Past year after users reported their phones suddenly shut down, even when the phone displayed as much as 30% of battery juice, Apple scrambled to release an update. Literally, the same thing has been proved by running benchmarking application on a older iPhone and a newer iPhone.
In addition to these lawsuits, Apple's admission about slowing down older iPhones in order to help extend the life of each phone's battery may reignite the debate regarding right to fix legislation.
However, replacing an older iPhone with a new battery doesn't necessary "guarantee" improvement in speed.
The company said it was to stop phones with degraded batteries from shutting down unexpectedly - not to push frustrated customers into upgrading. Still, people remain clueless as to when is the right time to replace their iPhone's battery, even after the company has confirmed older phones do get slower. The only possible way that one can do is to replace the battery via official Apple service centre.
Apple on Wednesday acknowledged that the company does take some measures to reduce power demands - which can have the effect of slowing the processor - when a phone's battery is having trouble supplying the peak current that the processor demands.
But it could also lead to accusation that Apple tries to rip off customers since charges for the replacement of batteries, which is now locked and secured within the device, by Apple aren't cheap.
