Quotes That Explain Apple's iPhone Battery Confession

She said this was because "with every upgrade to the system, more processing power from the phone's hardware is required and this will place a greater strain on the battery life of the phone".

The aging battery means your phone could have trouble operating or might unexpectedly shut down, like happened to the iPhone 6 and 6S a year ago.

Yesterday, we reported on a new development in the long simmering story about older iPhones beginning to feel sluggish after installing a new version of iOS.

Apple basically admits to the disingenuous behavior but insists they were only addressing units usiing old lithium batteries and not forcing us to upgrade to new phones. But when a developer tried a different type of test, he discovered that previous generation iPhones (specifically iPhone 6 and iPhone 7) with aging batteries confirmed the conspiracy theory. While many iPhone users have experienced perceived slowdowns due to iOS updates over the years, it appears that there's now proof Apple is throttling processor speeds when a battery capacity deteriorates over time.

It released a feature for iPhone 6, iPhone 6s, iPhone SE and iPhone 7 "to smooth out the instantaneous peaks only when needed to prevent the device from unexpectedly shutting down during these conditions".

WannaCry cyberattack: U.S. says it has evidence North Korea was 'directly responsible'
Other countries, like Russia, China, and the UK-where hospitals' systems were taken offline by the attack-were not as lucky. However, some months later, Hutchins was arrested by the Federal Bureau of Investigation while he was visiting the U.S.

CME Bitcoin Futures Price Above $20k in First Day Trading
The contract was last at $18,805, below the $19,500 reference price set by the exchange for the January contract. It makes more sense to sell short when there are clear signs of a steep decline that is continuing.

Japan OKs missile defence
President Donald Trump's policy of keeping all options on the table, including possible military actions, against the North. THAAD's coverage area is smaller than Aegis Ashore and it would require more units to cover Japan, defense officials said.

The problem stems from the fact that all lithium-ion batteries, not just those found in Apple products, degrade and have problems supplying the big bursts as they age and accumulate charging cycles, Apple said in a statement.

"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."

Now affected models are iPhone 7, iPhone 6, iPhone 6s and iPhone SE, with other models potentially receiving the same feature in the future. But it's largely shrugged off with smartphones - it doesn't help that the battery is not user replaceable.

"The phone shutting down by itself and having a shorter battery life are minor inconveniences by comparison".

Apple's confirmation comes after Reddit users noticed that their devices were getting slower as the batteries in their iPhones got weaker.
