Well, glad I’m not in the Apple cult. So Apple is slowing down older phones supposedly because they are worried about your battery lasting longer. Here’s the question, do you believe that? And if so – are you really that stupid? And why not have a setting where you can turn that feature off if, let’s say, you put a new battery in it?

    Oh you, Apple….

    Can we have buttons on a mac now?

    Is that really your opinion/analysis? I have been following you for years….one of your dummer comments….

    What’da mean??

    This isn’t a bad thing, it’s a new “feature”!

    Apple should have been more open about dealing with dying batteries in iPhones (to slow down the processing about 30% to avoid the iPhone shutting down entirely due to low current).

    But consumers also need to take some responsibility. Apple DOES warn iPhone users when their iPhone battery needs replacing. In the Settings>Battery it will give a notice that the battery needs replacement, and a link to service, at the top of the page.

    If a user chooses to ignore the warning, and continue using a dying battery, it is partially their fault. Apple should update the Settings>Battery notice to also include a statement that using a defective battery will result in slower processing.

    The fact that some people are calling this “planned obsolescence” puzzles me. All that a user needs to do is to replace the battery in their iPhone, and processing power will be back to 100%. It’s like someone with a flashlight suing the company because their flashlight isn’t as bright as it was, instead of going and buying fresh batteries. 🤔

    Ah, remember the old days when it was almost impossible to replace the iPhone battery?

    Good times, good times.

    How does Apple slow down those damn electrons? I can’t locate their patent in any of the searches I did at the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

    “… And if so – are you really that stupid?”

    Really? You’re asking APPLE USERS!

    YES!!! They ARE that stupid! Haven’t you seen the lines these sheep make every time a new i(product) rolls out?!

  8. ViewRoyal says:

    Some people want to waste their money on frivolous and baseless lawsuits. That’s their prerogative.

    Expecting Apple to pay them because they refuse to replace a dying battery in their iPhones, is like suing a flashlight manufacturer because the user refuses to replace the dying batteries in a flashlight.

    Battery replacement is a fact of life for smartphone owners, and unless the phone is still covered under warranty, it is the owner’s responsibility to replace the battery (which is not a huge expense anyways).

    Apple’s iOS allows people to use their phones with dying batteries by slowing the processing so that the iPhone doesn’t shut down entirely due to the low current from the fading battery. Prolonging the use of an iPhone with a dying battery, and avoiding the disruptive shutdown of the iPhone, is a benefit for the user.

    Instead of complaining (and suing) about a software feature that saves them anxiety, those users should just do the simple, normal thing… Replace the battery in their iPhones.

    • Chucky Hansen says:

      I see you bought into the bullshit. How about Apple just notify you about the state of your battery and that if you don’t replace it, performance will be degraded.

      Yes, its really that easy. Apple doing this as a favor to their customers is just total crap.
