It's a damned if you do/damned if you don't issue that all manufactures have to deal with in all devices. Apple's just the current scapegoat.

You think Apple would actually do something which is meant to prolong the life span of a device, if so you would think that would be something they are proud of and not keep secret.
Fact is they created both the shut down issue and then the slowdown 'fix' to encourage upgrades.
We must be very wary of old iphones suddenly acting strange in the coming months, to encourage upgrades. We know Apple have done this many times in the past, question is will they risk it again or know people are watching closely and actually be an honest company now.
Anonymous, 07 Jan 2019Well you like to customers like slowing down battery what u think????I think you're referring to slowing down the CPU on older phones doesn't wipe out the older, dying batteries so quickly. it's a perfectly acceptable way to extend the useful lifespan of older devices. Apple's failure was not making it optional.
Some people see it as a conspiracy to force you to buy new phones, but if Apple left the phones as-is, the batteries would wear out faster and then the same people would claim that as a conspiracy to make batteries fail to make you buy a new phone.
Apple has more than enough actual issues and crappy behaviors to deal with as it is. There's no need to make up more.

[deleted post]Just because I am protecting apple? I don't like apple. But wouldn't unreasonably bash them. Try to permanently drop a price AFTER you are known for an X standard.
Henry, 04 Jan 2019Jesus. Stop acting as if you only use your phone for all your tech needs. Just stop.Well that's what I'm doing..
Now try that with the iPhone :))
Apple need FPT/iJustine Youtubers to sing more praises.

Best phone for specs per $ (iPhone XR) is being pummeled by the comments here... moreCan you run bash scripts on your beloved iPhone? Can you run Unix/Linux commands?
Can you write code and test it on the same iPhone?
Do you have administrator access on your iPhone or are just using it in GUEST mode? (not ever USER mode)
Let me ask a simple one: can you transfer files on your iPhone?? :))
Clearly you have nothing to do with computer programming and pen testing.
IPhone is for grandparents and teenagers who never studied anything in school.
Go post a selfie on fb and let the tech nerds alone. You're not one of us.
Well reduce price to 300 put a friendly android inside add USB-C and support quck charge and people will start buy you again.
Othervise broom on you.
It begins. I'm just old enough to remember the OS7-8 Era of Macs before Steve Jobs came back. Apple was bleeding money and market share due to high prices, lack of innovation and mainly a lack of a vision for the company. They also had several failed projects like a new OS that never got off the ground and the Newton. Jobs, for all the wrong things he did knew how to right that ship. Tim Cook seems like a good guy, a decent manager but not someone to shake things up. And that's what Apple was supposed to be about. Think Different.

This is more than a dent. 10 more days like this and Apple is ded.
Non, no , NO!

Is there any other phone with a super processor installed. Even the new snapdragon is handled by it. Any other phone witch such a perfect bokeh effect? How about the passive biometrics?
The fact that other phones are thought as better deals is insulting. XR is the best iPhone per $ since forever!
