Now a days Apple is a useless company they phones look good but the quality is waste. Instead of buying IPhone I can buy LG and Meizu.
ME , 14 Jan 2018Apple will never do such a thing.
Lol, keep thinking that...
Greedy and evil company, nothing more.
Apple are slowing down iPads regardless of battery condition. My iPad is now uselessly slow.
Apple did not slow down their gadget with old battery. They simply slow down ALL their older devices, so that people upgrade to new device
Ipad 2 with stuck with ios9.
Almost unusable. Open 2 tabs in safari, the browser lag like hell. Even only 1 tab is already very slow in loading

If they could have just let everyone know about it this outcry wouldn't have come about. Why Apple didn't inform it's users about it is still a question Apple hasn't answered yet..
So don't you think it is again Apple's fault in the hardware section. Instead of giving us a higher capacity battery which would have been stable they stuck the same lower capacity batteries & give us a better battery life
What if Apple deliberately slow every device on their last update cycle? And that's not even about the battery ( or maybe battery is just part of the problem, but it is still deliberately being slow by the OS)!
I mean most people just using their device regularly in the normal routine ( if they don't play games or doing anything crazy, and just use it as normal as any non tech savvy would do, that wouldn't hurt the device or the battery that much, right? At least not comparing to those who play game while charging the device would.)
And honestly speaking, most iDevice I've encountered does slow after the last OS update cycle, even after the OS reset!
yes, i believe so. i have an ipad mini, and i noticed this even before all this bruhaha came about.
All my friends' iPads that are bought before 2016 are lagging very badly. I cant believe how could they bear their devices.

old Xperia and motorola can reach full speed no shooting, but booth exist before apple
Makes sense, think I charge my air 2 or 2017 once or twice a week. Will take years to get a decent wear level on them
Ok now we will slow down your devices as part of bug fixes, not battery related anymore
Kind of happy that my iPad Air 2 remains unaffected by the same thing. I hope it would remain the same for life.
Apple has slowed down every one of my devices as soon as the new model comes out. Noticed it on the iPhone 4 when the 4s came out and also noticed it on the iPhone 6 and 6 plus
In a certain way it makes more sense now what they've done, it's more of a compensation of higher internal resistance (ESR) than just boiling it down to "it's old, let's slow it down so people buy a new one". There seems to be a more valid reason for it then.
In other hand, this also brings up 2 quite heavy factors to the table:
1: the phone itself had faced cost-cutting on the battery filtering capacitors stage - where it should have a surge capacitor to cope up with the instantaneous bursts while the battery's chemistry then delivers the power in a closer to continuous fashion, that capacitor seems to be inadequately dimensioned for the device. Be it size constrains (nice job "thinner is better" trend) or costs, it really shows it's an electrical problem. My 4 years old Xperia L can go full throttle at any moment normally, and it's THAT old after all (sounds ridiculous that phones age that fast but eh... Nowadays...)
2: the battery itself has gone through cost cutting and isn't rated for high enough C discharge rate - this also directly affects fast-charge, but regardless of this feature's presence or not, the battery should have plenty of headroom on it's discharge cycle to operate the device safely. If the battery is that stressed during max throttle, this says a lot about how "on the edge" are the batteries and how low are the safety margins - the device is always under too high of a stress for a product that should be durable.
