s-pen pusher, 01 Nov 2018i have an iphone x and it is enabled by default.Impossible. Ur statement doesn't make any sense. It only enables if the battery has degraded. This new feature displays the health of the battery. Only when battery has degraded over several years then it gets enabled. And then we have a choice to disable it. This only happens on iphone 6 and 5s at the moment as they are several years old and batteries are much weaker. But newer iphones will still have a healthy battery and this feature will stay disabled until the battery starts degrading in a few years time
Anonymous, 01 Nov 2018Oh so you can't handle the TRUTH by Android Fans, eh?? And who are you calling us mean things?!The comments were accused of being dumb, not those making them, it’s telling that you missed that though.......
As has been stated, this is an optional feature aimed at extending the usability of degrading batteries, that is all.
The truth as you call it is simply your opinion mixed with an apparent dash of pro android bias.
If that's applied when battery degrade to some 50-60% then thats OK, if thats is applied when battery degrade to 80% than that's not OK, because its 100% planned device obsolescence, i mean, device will suddenly start to shut down, if you want to avoid this, then your device is slowed down to maximum...
1. The feature is there with a reason.
2. It will extend lifespan of your device.
3. You can turn it off if you want.
s-pen pusher, 01 Nov 2018it is a bad thing. it comes with a software update and is enabled by default, i mean there is ... moreHow's it a bad thing? And it's not enabled by default. It enables when the battery has become so weak. It's a good feature well done bringing it out.
Anonymous, 01 Nov 2018Just planned obsolescence at (Cr)Apple's greatest. More PROFIT$$Ironic especially, given that this is the opposite of planed obsolescence. You understand that this actually extends the life of devices right?

Better to throttle than explosion. Smart move by Apple. Dumb comments by Android fans.
This is a not-so-good precedent. Soon more manufacturers will include this "feature" just because Apple is doing it
Shak23, 31 Oct 2018Lmfao speak for your self most andorid have qnovo battery management and xperia devices have b... moreYour mighty "qnovo" is nothing else than slowing down the charging speed at higher percentages, which Is exactly what every iPhone has always done. But either way, your battery will still degrade. And when it degraded to a level that it can't hold a charge when asked for power-hungry tasks, what do you do?
If you have an android phone, your phone crashes and you think its broke so you buy a new one.
If you have an iPhone and your iPhone doesn't crash because of this feature, but instead throttles, you call the support and they say you that you can change your battery for € 20.
So in the end, it's cheaper.
And it's like always, if you buy cheap, you buy twice.
You can either keep your iPhone 5s for 6 years and change your battery once, or you can buy the Galaxy S5, S7 and S9 and waste a ton of money to get the latest updates and have a working device by also loosing money on resale value when you sell your 2 year old S7 for € 150 on eBay after buying it for € 750 at release. Nice
[deleted post]They did not enable it. They enable it when the phone battery is so bad that it starts crashing.
Note7 owner, 31 Oct 2018These phones are way too expensive to have a battery pack that degrades so quickly. They have a battery pack that degrades like every other one, nobody said it degrades faster. Or do you think a € 500 iPhone 8 has a mighty battery which degrades 3 times slower than that of the € 500 Galaxy S9?
Anonymous, 01 Nov 2018lol so only a year then it gets throttled... They must really want to hit 2 trillion that bad ... moreSo you still didn't get what, and most important, WHEN this feature actually does something. Fandroids are resistant to logic and common sense.
