The latest iOS 11 update brought a huge headache for Apple. The Cupertino Gigante has been accused and later confessed that it reduces the performance of old iPhones. The situation turned out bad after it was proven that she does it even with recent gadgets like the iPhone 7.
The absurdity that many thoughts were conspiracy theory proved to be the truest truth. Your iPhone 5S, 6, 6S and 7 gets slower with every update you made.
Apple reduces the processor clock of your iPhone as the battery pack is wearing out. In addition, this measurement also occurs when the load is low to prevent the unit from switching off suddenly.
And it is not a slight crush. This has already been happening since iOS 10.2.1 and in 11 only there has been a warning to the owners of iPhone 6S to buy a new device.
According to the manufacturer, this measure is adopted so iPhones can yield a whole day (here read as a shift or 8 hours) away from the power outlet.
The confession of programmed obsolescence
Check out Apple’s response to the TechCrunch site:
“Our goal is to deliver the best customer experience, which includes the overall performance and extended life of your devices. Lithium-ion batteries become less capable of delivering peak current demands when in cold conditions, with low battery power, or as they age over time, which may result in unexpected shutdown of the device to protect their electronic components.
Last year we launched a feature for the iPhone 6, iPhone 6s and iPhone SE to smooth out the instantaneous peaks only when necessary to prevent the device from unplugging unexpectedly during these conditions. We have now extended this feature to iPhone 7 with iOS 11.2 and plan to add support for other products in the future. “
The apology given by Apple not only reveals that the company does programmed obsolescence in design, as it intensifies to “worsen” the overall performance of older iPhones.
It would be much more ethical, the company suggesting battery replacement after two years of use. But wait there? iPhone 7 was released in September 2016. It has not even a year and a half of use. If I buy one now, will I be affected again? It might be!
For Apple, if you do not have an iPhone of the year, you should change, and fast. This is the impression that remains.
“Why is something always missing?”
Apple uses dozens of tricks to sell its handsets. One is to always leave something missing to not give the feeling of completeness to the user. After all, he needs to wait for the next release.
It has always been ridiculous the mAh amount in the iPhones’ batteries. Apple’s smartphones are already ridiculously thin and the company insists on not adding more battery. It’s that saying, “You do not correct one mistake by committing another.” And that’s exactly what Apple committed here.
In several sites and groups on Facebook, there are no reports of users of iPhone 6S and up to 7, saying that the devices were slow after the update for iOS 11.2. Yeah, it’s going to take a while to get back to trusting Apple.
Will in the future it will display pop-ups suggesting you buy a new iPhone or will it simply disable your old iPhone? Leave a comment.
