Silly Apple, They should of given users the choice instead of being over controlling as usual.
I had this issue with my iphone 3GS and 4S back in the day. Gave the 4S to a friend who didn't mind the lack of performance and she got a good 4 to 5 years use out of it. If it was planned obsolescence it wouldn't have lasted that long.
Since then I purchased a Nexus 5 which suffered the exact same issues as described in this article however didn't last half as long. Hate on Apple as much as you want, their products are still superior to most other brands out there.
We also have an iphone SE (running 2 generation old 6s internals) and it is still snappy as ever. A few questionable option defaults with the new ios11 reduced the battery life a little initially, but after a quick google search and finding a step by step guide to disabling them the phone is just like it was prior to the update.
My iphone 7 also outlives any android phone I've compared it to. So underrated and ignored by many just because it looks the same as it's previous model. Look at the front page of GSM Arena on a daily basis and you'll see that 99% of the phones all look the same. Apple haters are so irrational.
Dude1111, 22 Dec 2017I hope they win.I hope you're talking about the consumers. If they win they should slash all iPhone prices in half. Even then it wouldn't be worth it still. Wouldn't use that if it was given to me for free either!

Bye bye apple.. i still have iphone 5 & 6 running ios 10.. and will never upgarde coz its definitely downgrade not upgrade haha
Buying a phone for 800-1000$ not knowing that Apple is going to downgrade its performance.
Make Apple pay up, they just got a huge tax cut so they can afford it.
