Apple unleashed the ferocity of users to confirm that it had begun to slow down the older iPhones because of the degraded batteries. The solution was to access a special battery replacement, although that did not seem to be enough. However, now according to the latest reports, now all the old iPhones will work as fast as before and all credit goes to the new iOS 11.3.
iOS 11.3: Old iPhones Will Work As Fast As Before
The tech giant Apple unleashed the rage of users to confirm that it had begun to slow down the older iPhones because of the degraded batteries. The solution was to access a special battery replacement, although that did not seem to be enough. With the arrival of the beta version of iOS 11.3, the tech giant Apple began to allow to deactivate the slowdown and, now, some tests confirm that this version returns the original performance to the old iPhone.
A few days ago we explained how to check if your iPhone is slower or has battery problems. In addition, some applications, the tech giant Apple offers this possibility in the beta version of iOS 11.3 through the Battery Health option. This is found in Settings> Battery> Battery Health.
In the “Maximum performance capacity” section, users with slowed-down devices can choose to “Disable” that special slowdown introduced by the tech giant Apple to conserve battery status and improve the user experience. With this option, users can recover the normal functioning of their terminal.
According to some performance tests of iPhone 6 Plus, one of the devices most impacted by the slowdown, the beta version of iOS 11.3 recovers the original performance of the terminal. In addition, it far exceeds the performance it offers with the same tests in stable iOS 11.2.1.

In the previous tweet, we can see a screenshot of both scenarios, with iOS 11.3 and with iOS 11.2.1, and its different results. With iOS 11.2.1, the iPhone 6 Plus offers a Single Core performance of 1306 points and a Multi-Core performance of 2247 points. On the other hand, with iOS 11.3 we have 1510 points in Single Core and 2621 points in Multicore.
Without a doubt, good news for all those affected by Apple’s slowdown. However, this is still part of the iOS 11.3 beta and there are still a few weeks left until it reaches all users. However, the tech giant Apple has made it clear that “if you turn off performance management, you will not be able to activate it again. It will be activated again automatically if an unexpected shutdown occurs”.
