Is Apple deliberately slowing down your phone?
Apple has recently put out new software. I noticed that my old iPhone device is substantially slowing down than it had been earlier with the installation of new software. I did some research and came to know that yes! My old generation iPhone is slowing down. Then it turned out that it’s not me but many iPhone users who are wondering if the company is doing it deliberately or not.
Apple, of course, wants its customers to go out and buy the new iPhone as soon as it comes out and that’s how most of the successful businesses run. According to it, if your phone’s battery life has significantly reduced and you want to mitigate it, then all you have to do is reduce the performance of your phone. So, this move of Apple for sure goes in favor of buying a new iPhone.
Recently, the sudden shut down of iPhone 6 and 6s has really disappointed the users which lead many consumers to think about switching off. Let’s have a look at the Apple statement
‘’Our goal is to deliver the best experience to customers, which includes overall performance and prolonging the life of their devices. Lithium-ion battery becomes less capable of supplying peak current demands when in cold conditions, have a low battery charge as they age over time which can result in the device unexpectedly shutting down. ’’
The last update issued in 2016 slowed down iPhones and this fuelled speculations over the year about whether the company is doing it intentionally until Apple admitted this in 2017. Apple has also claimed to launch new iOS in the upcoming device which will prevent power lags in iPhone.
Why is Apple slowing down your phone?
The company’s new update is putting too much demand on the phone’s battery which is why the phone slows down. This reason for slowing down the phone is increasing the performance rather compelling the users to upgrade their device. The company claims that the update was not released for the purpose of slowing down old devices however the critics are not accepting it.
It is said that the phone’s performance can be regained by replacing the battery. However, it requires the user to have enough technical knowledge as Apple uses the non-removable batteryonn the phone to keep it slim and sleek. So, if your phone gets slower, replace its battery not the phone itself.
