Yes, your older iPhone is being slowed by Apple

PSA: iPhone slow? Try replacing your battery! : iphone - Reddit

Apple is reportedly admitting to slowing down older iPhones.

"If Apple can show that the slowdowns are relative to the number of cycles that a battery has - which is information that an iPhone likely tracks, since Macs do so already - then there might be some truth to their claims", said Michael Oh, chief technology officer and founder of TSP, a Boston-based Apple partner.

So there's good news and bad news for owners of old iPhones.

Now affected models are iPhone 7, iPhone 6, iPhone 6s and iPhone SE, with other models potentially receiving the same feature in the future.

Bristol City Pulls Stunning Upset Over Manchester United in Stoppage Time
Many colleagues commented that they had never seen a manager leave so quickly after a televised game. Jose Mourinho congratulated Bristol City on their win but felt they were lucky to beat his side.

"This fix will also cause users to think, "my phone is slow so I should replace it" not, "my phone is slow so I should replace its battery, '" Poole wrote".

Doron Myersdorf, CEO instant-charging battery startup StoreDot, said that "smoothing out" means that phones will reorder incoming commands to make sure not all of them are done in parallel.

He was able to prove that the iPhones with older batteries had their performance throttled and iOS prevented their CPUs from hitting maximum processing power.

There are some real implications for AAPL stock in this announcement.

When the iPhone 7 was released a year ago, Business Insider reported on a survey of buyers that listed the reasons why they upgraded.

"So if you compare batteries to, for example, computers, the difference is really that in batteries you have to invent new materials to make them better, whereas in semiconductors, you're inherently, most of the time, using the same materials and you're just making them smaller, which is easier."
The fourth most popular reason was faster processing speed. "Why not just offer to replace the battery instead?"

If you're curious about the status of your phone's battery you can download a free app, such as Battery Life from developer RBT Digital, or head into your local Apple Store to get it checked out. And because it's so gradual, progressively shorter battery life is ignored by most people, until it's time for a new iPhone. Battery capacity is generally expected to decrease with age but the iPhone's performance should stay the same.

As of this writing, Brad Moon did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.
