Purple Cactus Posted December 23, 2017 Share Posted December 23, 2017 (edited) I think this is ironically funny because I can't stand the fanboys of these phones. If you like the phone for the sake of it being a decent phone, great but the hardcore iPhone fans who preach like no other phones exist, I can't help but grin over this one. https://www.vox.com/2017/12/22/16807056/apple-slow-iphone-batteries Quote Apple says it’s doing this to protect your phone. As the lithium ion batteries in the phone age, they can’t handle processing demands at the same capacity, which causes the phone to shut down unexpectedly. It released an update to stop those unexpected shutdowns, which also means that the phones work a little more slowly. But the revelation — or confession — that Apple is purposefully decreasing phone speed fed into a conspiracy theory that’s been circulating for awhile on “planned obsolescence.” After new products are released, the theory goes, Apple purposefully messes with your iPhone, frustrating you and forcing you to shell out money to upgrade.
