As usual with Apple they saw the costumers as wallets not as people
AlwaysBanned, 21 Dec 2017Ever since, Samsung phones are already slow. Nothing new. -An average person that has tried... moreI was actually impressed how the hell Samsung has managed to make S8, S8+ and Note 8 so damn slow. People said they have optimized their UI finally, but I couldn't detect any of that.
roMadMike, 21 Dec 2017Feature? You must be f-ing kidding me! Innovative feature!Lets be honest, everything about iphone is a 'feature'. Slowing down the phone? Higher price to add in tech the competition had a year or so ago? Removing the headphone Jack? Everything about apple is about getting a baseline product (from a year ago) overcharging for it and having the only redeemable factor being that they at least attempt to make the product not feel or act cheap.
New feature next year must be the screen going darker over time to save battery lol.
imRGZ, 21 Dec 2017And yet my 6s died recently even after all the things Apple did to PRESERVE hardware. I think ... moreIf your 6s died so fast it's on you. I have a perfectly working iPhone 5 still (not my main phone obviously). The 6s is only two years old so it definitely didn't die being used normally.
The problem is that only Apple decide when your phone must be slowed down. They don't ask you if you feel or see that it's still performing well. It's a no sense.
I'm sure that now that this is public, all iPhones with more than one and half year or two, have now less resell value for sure. Any buyer with knowledge about this will pay or offer, at least, 80-120$ less depending the model due to the Apple prices for replacing batteries, 129-169$ for service in older devices, iPhone X aside.

Reduced battery backup or reduced performance, either way Apple reminds you about their latest products. If one can be bogged down by poor battery life, he can also be with slower performance. It is Apple's way to prompt people to upgrade, buy the latest if you want faster performance or live with your old slower iPhone.
AlwaysBanned, 21 Dec 2017Okay, but the logic doesn't make any sense. Apple lies, you hate. Apple admits the truth, you ... moreThe issue here isn't hating on Apple for nothing, it's because they're slowing down old phones just to preserve the battery, which some may call planned obsolescence, and is a bad business practice.
AlwaysBanned, 21 Dec 2017Okay, but the logic doesn't make any sense. Apple lies, you hate. Apple admits the truth, you ... moreIsnt the answer simple?
If you dont want to be hated, dont slow down my phone without my consent. simple.
sa11oum, 21 Dec 2017I wish Android fans would stop having a smug comment over every little thing Apple does. Go pl... moreAnd yet my 6s died recently even after all the things Apple did to PRESERVE hardware. I think for all the things Apple does, it's their fans who preach as if those features are groundbreaking, like this very feature and iPhone X's notch. Now that Apple itself said it slows down older iPhones, where are those iFans who proclaims their 3/4 year old iPhones will be as fast as they were on their debut?
apple made there name as one of the top brands of the world so now they admit slowing down the older phone, but why not optimise the os as its not that meny different models like android
Anonymous, 21 Dec 2017That is down right RUDE, would of been better had they lied about it rather than admit it and... moreOkay, but the logic doesn't make any sense. Apple lies, you hate. Apple admits the truth, you still hate.
What should Apple do for people to not hate them? This time they were being honest, and I do believe that it deserves a respect. At least we know now that Apple isn't really a big liar at all.
Better hate because of being a liar than hate for admitting something truthfully.
Akorn Farmer, 21 Dec 2017Some people says that Apple is doing so to promote to sell new iphone, so-called planned obsol... morefunny i dont know even 1 person who bought new phone because battery its to get faster device or to show off
if i pay top money i expect to be top device for 2years at least i know after every charge my battery is reducing capacity
im happy to have 30minutes less screen on time after 2years if my device is still fast
better fix your fruit phones not to shutdown if thats the reason
last time my phone restarted due bad battery was early 2000
i feel sorry for the people who defend this
lets reduce screen brightness also since your backlight is also going down
why not reduce the number of pictures you take to preserve that cmos censor
also you dont need loud sound lets reduce it
its not to make you buy new phone of course we will just cripple yours to preserve it for generations ahead

Got a friend that has been using Xperia Z for 4 years without getting the battery replaced while maintaining the same exact performance it has as it was new.
Anonymous, 21 Dec 2017Wait, I forgot to say they could also buy SPECIAL TOOLS and perform iFixit gymnastics at home ... moreThat, against just popping out the back of the phone, remove the battery, replace it with a new one, install the back cover again, and you have a phone with a brand new battery.
Oh, did I forgot that things like ZeroLemon makes OEM batteries that are even larger than the original ones (Galaxy Note 4 10000mAh ZeroLemon battery).
