Apple Says It Will Implement Toggle Option for iPhone Slowdowns Next Month
Apple has confirmed the investigations launched by the US government over slowing down of customer’s iPhone devices without being more transparent and says the promised power management features are coming next month.
As you may be aware, Apple released last year a new software update that implemented a so-called feature which slowed down the performance of certain iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s devices with degrated batteries under cold weather and when the battery charge was low.
The feature was extended to iPhone 7 models as well a year later, and discovered by accident after some users reported slowdowns on their older iPhone devices. Apple wasn’t really transparent about this feature, even so Apple CEO Tim Cook said in an interview earlier this month that they said so in the release notes of the respective iOS update.
