Apple intentionally makes it very difficult to ignore iOS updates, and I didn’t expect that, as I dutifully updated my iPhone 6 to iOS 11, I was dooming my phone to unusable performance.
Forget conspiracies: Why Apple’s reason for slowing your iPhone is hostile

Here is the culprit: if you know that batteries tend to loose performance with time, why should you encourage or even «force» your customers to upgrade their devices?!

Yes, of course the security argument could be involved but Apple should have had the moral obligation to inform their customers that their devices would run more slowly before asking them to make the move.

The iPhone 6S’ battery performance has to be analyzed the same way Apple did with the MacBook Pro Retina w Touch Bar and it’s battery performance: rather than resolving the battery’s problem, Apple just took away the feature 🤷🏾‍♀️

By the way, by asking the customers to pay 29$ for a battery replacement (which costs less than 10$), Apple makes a smart move: making those customers part of the solution 😁

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
