The Theory of Obsolescence: Late 2016: Samsung’s Note 7 explodes, recalled & withdrawn Apple plans to avoid such disasters by releasing iOS update that shuts down the iPhone( old iPhones with degraded batteries) in times of peak performance rather than overheating & exploding Early 2017: Apple users complain random shut down Apple releases iOS update that prevents shut down by decreasing the performance of iPhone(with degraded batteries) during peak performance times Late 2017: Apple users complain performance differences testing with new batteries Apple admits slowing down iPhones Lawsuits against Apple Today: Apple apologises by reducing the cost of battery replacement The whole world accuses Apple of conspiracies MORAL: Apple punished for learning mistakes from Samsung & taking safety measure for their users (Samsung officials in jail laughing taking a bite out of an Apple)
Apple doesn't slow down all the phones, only those with degraded battery. Also it slows down only in the peak performance time. Why can't people just understand that? When would you buy a new phone? when your phone shuts down randomly or when it lags sometimes? If Apple wants you to buy a new phone, it could just let your phone shut down due to poor battery. Its actually making you not to buy a new phone often. My 6S has the same exact Geekbench score now on iOS 11.2.1 just like it the day I bought it.
