Next update to the iOS 11 will be allowing users to disable battery performance by throttling on the devices

The Apple CEO, Tim Cook had shared with the consumers that now the next update to the iOS 11 will be allowing the users to disable the battery performance by throttling on the devices. Well this move came after when the Apple Company last month admitted that it had intentionally slowed down its iPhones.This has been done to prevent all kinds of the issues that arise when they grow older and their batteries starts to depreciate as well. This update will be arriving next month. It will be informing all the users more clearly when their mobile phones will automatically be reduced in the performance and it will be done to prevent any sort of the unexpected shutdowns. And in case the users don’t want it, they can always turn it off too. This measure is meant to preserve the battery life of all the mobile phones that have the degrading batteries and it will also be preventing them from the shutting down accidently. This has already been evidenced from the planned obsolescence that the company had reduced the performance of its older iPhones models in order to entice all the users to buy the new mobile phones.

This update will be arriving next month and just before quite a wider public roll out

The Apple Company had already faced 32 class actions suits and it is all about the intentional slowing down of its devices. Apple has already issued an apology letter too for not being clear as well as upfront about this tactic and also not being clear about the discount on the replacement of the batteries. This update will be arriving next month and just before quite a wider public roll out. The consumers will also be imparted the visibility of the health of their batteries and this is going to be very transparent too. This phone slowing software was released last year itself. It has been intended to ensure that the users of the iPhones didn’t get disconnected when they are in the middle of some crucial text message or a call due to their old battery.

The Apple Company further clarified that it is reducing the performance of the user’s phone in an effort to prevent the unexpected restart

Tim Cook further clarified that the company is reducing the performance of the user’s phone in an effort to prevent the unexpected restart. But you can always turn it off or on. But turning it off is something which is never recommended to the users as their iPhones are really crucial to them. In fact they themselves never know when there is something so urgent. After the accusations of these kinds of the battery related problems, the company had already started offering these battery replacements for its affected models at the cost of $ 29 which is at a discount of $ 50 from the usual cost $ 79 for the battery replacement.
