After the allegations that the tech giant Apple would be slowing the iPhones, now the tech giant Apple decided to clarify the subject and admit that it has applied, in iOS, mechanisms that control the performance to avoid battery problems.
Finally, Apple Admits It Slows Older iPhones
The allegations that the tech giant Apple would be slowing the iPhone 6s, to solve battery problems, surfaced earlier this month. It was revealed in Reddit the analysis of a user who detected a great decrease in performance compared to another iPhone 6 Plus.
After many theories, the tech giant Apple decided to clarify the subject and admit that it has applied, in iOS, mechanisms that control the performance to avoid battery problems.
The reported case proved that the tech giant Apple was limiting the performance of the iPhone 6s processor, slowing it down. However, at the time many analysts suggested that this behaviour could be solved by simply replacing the battery.
Apple’s claims about this case
After several theories and new evidence, including coming from the founder of Geekbench, the tech giant Apple decided now to reveal what happened and admit that all the assumptions are right to limit the performance of the iPhone 6s, to fix the battery issues that had been reported in the end of last year.
“Our goal is to deliver the best experience for customers, which includes overall performance and prolonging the life of their devices. Lithium-ion batteries Become less capable of Supplying peak current demands when in cold conditions, have a low battery charge or they act over time, Which can result in the device unexpectedly shutting down to protect its electronic components.
Last year we released the feature for iPhone 6, iPhone 6s and iPhone SE to smooth out the instantaneous peaks Only When needed to Prevent the device from shutting down unexpectedly during these conditions. We’ve now extended queue feature to iPhone with iOS 7, iOS 11.2, and plan to add support for other products in the future”.
The reasons for the existence of these measures on the iPhone
According to the tech giant Apple’s claims, this behaviour is triggered whenever the iPhone’s battery gets old, cold, or undercharged. This is the way to solve this problem on lithium-ion batteries.
The idea of the tech giant Apple is to minimize periods of high battery consumption, which may mean that it is not able to provide the necessary power, causing the devices to shut down.
These measures are not limited to the iPhone 6s
It was further revealed that these measures were not only applied to the iPhone 6s, but are also to the iPhone 6 and the iPhone SE, and not only that even with the arrival of iOS 11.2, these measures were also applied to the iPhone 7 as well.
Hence, the tech giant Apple clarified the mystery and proved that the tech giant Apple has in iOS measures to control the performance of these smartphones, confirming not only this case but others that have been reported.
