PSA: iPhone slow? Try replacing your battery! : iphone - Reddit

If you're an iPhone user, this sounds all too familiar: It seems every time Apple rolls out a newer, better version, you may get a little suspicious because your device - which was previously working fine - starts to spasm and glitch-out all of the sudden.

The company, which expects its phones to last for three years, has now said it does slow down some models as they age, but only because the phones' battery performance diminishes over time. Apple said that it introduced those breaks with an iOS update previous year to slow down aging iPhone 6, iPhone 6S and iPhone SE models. (NASDAQ:AAPL) rumor mill today is news of AAPL working on better batteries. "Couldn't figure out why, but just thought that iOS 11 was still very bad to me".

Geekbench developer John Poole has mapped out performance for the iPhone 6S and iPhone 7 over time, and has come to the conclusion that Apple's iOS 10.2.1 and 11.2.0 updates introduce this throttling for different devices. iOS 10.2.1 is particularly relevant, as this update was created to reduce random shutdown issues for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6S. Of course many of these people then take their phone to Apple who notice a trend.

Technology expert John Poole has forced Apple to come clean on the real secret behind Apples marketing and sales success, of why customers are so eager to upgrade to the latest iPhone model, and the answer may surprise you!

However, this week a simple advice post online titled "PSA: iPhone slow?"

Ahed was nine when weekly demonstrations began in Nabi Saleh to protest the seizure of the village's spring by settlers. Earlier on Tuesday, the occupying state's Minister of Education, Naftali Bennet, also spoke against Tamimi.

Lithium-ion batteries are commonly used in mobile devices, and charging capacity naturally wanes with use and time. It will be applied to other Apple devices in the future. In the wake of Apple's admission, some customers are criticizing the company for not being more transparent about how it handles device performance.

After checking the device's performance with the processor benchmarking service Geekbench, TeckFire replaced the battery of his iPhone 6s and checked again to discover the performance of the processor had improved markedly.

The company went on to say that the iPhone 6 contains a feature that slows the phone down "only when needed to prevent the device from unexpectedly shutting down" due to a depleted battery.

The problems with peak current draws can also occur when batteries are cold or low on charge, Apple said.
