Apple has confirmed the suspicions of many iPhone owners by revealing it does deliberately slow down some models of the iPhone as they age.
Many customers have long suspected that Apple slows down older iPhones to encourage people to upgrade.
The company has now said it does slow down some models as they age, but only because the phones’ battery performance diminishes over time.
Apple said it wanted to “prolong the life” of customers’ devices.
There is pros and cons to this story such as its known that lithium ion batteries deplete over time and this can help preserve the handset, but the argument is Apple is tampering with your phone without you knowing isn’t a good consumer move as what else can they do?
Apple charges £79 for a replacement battery and must be done at the Apple Stores to maintain warranty but only with iPhone 5s’s and above.
Has this affected you, did you know that we also do business mobile phones & sim contracts as part of our partnership with Carphone Warehouse. Could this be time to move to an Android phone?
P.S We all still love iPhones here at SOD-IT!
