Others have suggested that Apple should make the operating system more proactive about alerting users to their battery issues, so they at least know they can try a battery replacement to speed up their phone before plunking down even more money for a brand new one-or at least so they understand why their phone seems slower.

The sudden shutdown problem became widespread among iPhones in late 2016, forcing Apple to issue a software fix that had the net result of slowing the phone somewhat with an old, cold or low-charged battery, the company said. Introduced previous year for the iPhone 6, iPhone 6s, and iPhone SE, the feature is aimed at preventing unexpected device shutdowns, the company said. He claims Apple's tactic of slowing down older iPhone models causes users to suffer - specifically those with the 7 or 7s - and take a hit to their wallets.

Apple has finally admitted that it slows down its older iPhones on objective.

Apple has since introduced the feature to the iPhone 7 with the release of iOS 11.2-first made available earlier this month-and said it plans to continue to add support for other products going forward.

However, this week a simple advice post online titled "PSA: iPhone slow?"

This iPhone was shiny and new in 2007, but phone batteries don't exactly age gracefully. He also accuses Apple of using the power cap as a ploy to force consumers to buy newer devices. Bogdanovich asserts that the slowdowns are generally just a ploy to get smartphone users to upgrade their devices, therefore allowing Apple to rake in that much more cash as a result. But now the company is being sued for its admission. However, Stefan Bogdanovich argues in his lawsuit that this practice isn't disclosed to iPhone customers when they sign their contracts with Apple.

"Our goal is to deliver the best experience for customers, which includes overall performance and prolonging the life of their devices".

After checking the device's performance with the processor benchmarking service Geekbench, TeckFire replaced the battery of his iPhone 6s and checked again to discover the performance of the processor had improved markedly. Apple says that "some features might not work" in this mode, so be warned.
