Anonymous, 28 Jan 2018For $30, I can replace the battery. So why throttle the phone or suffer shutdowns?Where who ?? $30..not non-removable.
I can do this already in Samsung battery , setting.!!! Yes Samsung!!!!!!!!
Just give all the options for the users to toggle Apple!!
I HATE having no options but to eat whateva is fed to me. People can try BOTH options, instability or lag, its up to them!
I like to have key repeats on my iPad NOT accent characters.. BUT NO OPTION to toggle.
I like to have swipe to unlock.. not mash my home button everytime.. BUT NO OPTION to toggle.
Don't worry about "knowing whats best for the people". Worry more about your BUGGY OS, and provide people with more toggles. You already JAILED people in this OS, you don't need to CHAIN them as well....
raizer, 29 Jan 2018Again , why you think it is reasonable to have random shut down phone in the first place ? It ... moreIt's how ALL hardware works.
As the battery ages, it won't be able to deliver as much voltage. If the phone demands more voltage than the battery can deliver, the phone abruptly dies, even if it has a significant charge left.
The difference between Apple and other manufacturers is that the Apple engineers worked their way around it via throttling to ensure their owners had a usable phone, rather than one that dies on them left and right due to an old battery. The only flaw was that they didn't inform the people of this design.
raizer, 29 Jan 2018Because it was $79 back then . 2.5x pricier than other brand when having half of the capacity ... moreSo much nonsense...
Samsung still charges $73 to replace the Edge battery. So whats your point?
Oathbreaker, 28 Jan 2018The real answer - Don't buy anymore iPhones The question about throttling won't come up. ... moreTo be honest, it is one of the best eco system back in 2010-2013 but it just stay where it is until now, android is mature now and it is really giving me an equivalent experience.
FinnishInquisition, 28 Jan 2018Really? Tell me what's logical about wanting an unnoticeably faster device that may shut down ... moreAgain , why you think it is reasonable to have random shut down phone in the first place ? It was a desgin flaw and now you think its a function ?
Anonymous, 28 Jan 2018Well, throttling is always better than shutdowns and random boots.Well it should happen in first place . It is a design flaw and should recall like note 7 . Instead they advertise it as a function .
Anonymous, 28 Jan 2018For $30, I can replace the battery. So why throttle the phone or suffer shutdowns?Because it was $79 back then . 2.5x pricier than other brand when having half of the capacity . They forced to lower the price due to this scandal .
CPU throttling wouldn't be a problem is Apple made their batteries bigger instead of the mediocre ones they have currently. 4'7" screen phones should have 2400+ mAh batteries while 5.5" and bigger should have at least 3000mAh batteries. No amount of optimization can beat a bigger battery.

Why is this even a thing??I have never seen this happen .Isn't that backpedaling because you supplied expensive phones with small capacity batteries??Apples phones are supposed to be the best of the best then they pull this and the users just pretty much go along with it....WTF??
