  • Apple responding to US government inquiries over iPhone throttling

    A couple of thoughts
    - I prefer it to be a choice to throttle or not throttle 
    - once you've begun throttling, not clear if always throttling or performance is restored when you have a full charge
    - rollout of battery program not up to usual level of service - made an appointment at Apple Store for battery replacement (first store claimed wouldn't have batteries in stock for weeks so made appointment at 2nd store that could take us earlier)
    .... when arrived for appointment, they did a battery diagnostic - claimed 2.6 year old iPhone 6 was at 94% life which was deemed very healthy
    .... phone needs to be charged 3 times per day, always set at minimum brightness - this is healthy?
    .... then told didn't have battery in stock even though appointment was made weeks in advance - expected them to have one in stock to satisfy appointment
    .... given excuse that everyone and their brother is coming in
    ...  can't make appointment for when the replacement arrives
    .... told to expect 2 hour wait once the battery comes in
    - this whole experience should have been different, and better.
