Dez, 07 Feb 2018And yet I do that stuff all the time, I leave my phone charging over night every single night ... moreThat's hard to believe, as ALL batteries degrade when you are doing those things. Not just one company's smartphone batteries, but all batteries regardless of manufacturer and device. Laptops, tablets, phones, flashlights, powerbanks, etc. - all Li-Ion batteries degrade when you go below and over 15-80%, when you keep charging them even after they've reached 100%, and with each and every charge-discharge cycle, even if you stay in the 15-80% range.
Anonymous, 05 Feb 2018You are not making much sense in your rant.
People complained about sudden phone shutdowns ... moreAnd yet I do that stuff all the time, I leave my phone charging over night every single night and I'm not experiencing any random shutdowns on my Samsung or any huge battery / performance issues so why are Apple having this issue so often when others don't? Are we sure they are using high quality batteries and that they are optimising the software / hardware to not drain / conflict the battery over time? I've had my Samsung galaxy s6 edge plus for over 2 years doing the things you say would smash an iphone battery in 6 months so why is that?
Apple need to work out a solution for why there batteries have such problems.
DaLane, 05 Feb 2018Funny joke, learning from mistakes !? Being transparent !?
Are we still talking about Apple c... moreYou are not making much sense in your rant.
People complained about sudden phone shutdowns -> Apple investigated the issue -> Apple found that old, degraded batteries can't meet the CPU's demand for current -> Apple issues software fix for phones with old batteries; phones with batteries in good condition are not affected -> sudden phone shutdown problem fixed.
Batteries are consumables, as they are products that degrade over time. They are not part (and shoud not be part) of the warranty.
If you abuse a battery by depleting-charging it multiple times a day, charging your phone all night long, or not staying within the 15%-80% battery range at all times, your battery will age considerably after 6 months of usage.
I never charge my phone more than 80%, nor do I let the battery go lower than 20%. I charge my iphone 7 once every two days, and yes it holds a charge for (almost) two days. (40 hours to be exact)

At least in the Netherlands. In general the battery only becomes much worse after the warranty already expired so you have to pay for a new battery yourself.

When you phone battery starts dying whilst within warranty period you can get it fixed at apple's expense. Apple makes phones on the cheap and their batteries are one of the worst quality on the market, however the whole process of confirming fault and warranty the phone is still relatively costly. When apple spends ~£140 to make phone and makes 500% profit on it, the last thing they want is to warranty-fix the batter for additional £40. Hence they hid the fault with software "fix" so that you cannot claim warranty + you might think your phone just got too old and too slow for your needs and you need upgrade. As such this fix is planned obsolescence + warranty fraud in plain sing, definitely not something for customer benefit.

Are we still talking about Apple cause these Apple never been and is not and will not be in anything transparent to world and customers.
Being transparent is like telling to all Apple customers: "Hi Apple fans, we did fool you and slowed down our 1 year old iPhones and pushed you to buy our new iPhones and after a year pay us a huge amount of money. We are sorry about that and we will never fool you again." It means being transparent not lying more and fooling people and telling to everyone they did slowed down CPUs for your own good. Are you blind it what ?

Only an iDiot stupid iSheep gonna believe App... moreOnly idiots who don't read are all excited about this news cos they never read past the headlines. There was a major issue with phones shutting down, (which again, tons of people compained about to Apple), and Apple provided this solution, which worked great.
The power management issue is not the actual thing you should focus on. Apple's mistake was to do it in their usual secretive way. They seem to be learning about these mistakes though, and seem more and more transparent with their products, and are quick to react.
This wouldn't be a problem if Apple had put it bigger batteries in their iPhones in the first place, like 2400+ mAh for the non-Plus phones and 3500+ mAh for the Plus.

I get a full day with this phone even tho Android battery management is trash and I don't know why iPhone people are arguing about this. iOS and Android have different ways of managing their resources so its kind of hard to compare the situation, because this SD800 still handles everything I throw at it. Perhaps it has to do more about the way people use their phones and how they expect their phones to always be perfectly working. They won't, give this nonsense up
Slowing down the CPU because of battery health!? Only an iDiot stupid iSheep gonna believe Apple does slow down CPUs for own customer's good. Apple only want to push you idiot iSgeeps to buy their new junks. How iDiot can be a person to believe these poor lies
Terryeesti, 04 Feb 2018I am very surprised that 27% believe Apple's BS! U don't need to be surprised, is a question of perspective. GSMA don't told us really how worked this poll, puts 2 options:
-Do you prefer throttling the cpu, saving battery, when u're too lazy to change the battery, when battery's life is over, this way always having a working phone when u always can use.
-Do you prefer to keep a suddenly dead phone when have battery's life over and faster, playing about when can the battery blows up your hand, shut down ur phone when really u need to use.
On a few words: I prefer throttling the cpu.
I don't blame apple for the throttling, else for don't inform us.

They all suffer from the exact same thing that happen to iPhones with unhealth batteries, like the S4 example in the post below.
Just because you don't have an issue does'nt mean it does'nt exists. And its not like its magic, if you have any clue about electronics.
