Apple acknowledges slowing iPhones

The team at iPhone Repair Base explains how Apple acknowledges slowing iPhones. As we reported earlier, Geekbench tests showed that iPhones with worn-down batteries slow down. Which no longer offers the performance expected from a new phone. Apple has managed to pull this trick off in a way that users start thinking about buying a new phone. Or perhaps it wasn’t such a good trick after all? The Californian mobile phone manufacturer has provided an explanation.

The chemistry of lithium-ion batteries is a tricky thing, and it is true that their ability to release energy can change under certain circumstances.

Lithium-ion batteries aren’t so good at meeting high power demands in cold weather. At low battery power and if they are worn down, which can lead to an unexpected shutdown. This can prevent damage to the electronic parts.

Apple acknowledges slowing iPhones – This is Apple’s response to TechCrunch’s question.

This means that the iPhone is slowed down to prevent it from shutting down or being irreparably damaged.

Batteries get worn down, this is a fact; plus, extreme weather conditions aren’t good for energy sources. The condition of batteries is not only determined by the number of charge cycles. But also by the kind of heat it has been exposed to.

That’s right – even a few occasions can cause massive damage. Although there may be no visible signs, the heat can trigger irrevocable chemical changes inside the device.   

What iOS does, is that it actively checks the battery’s reactions to see how much it can meet the system’s needs. Then it detects that the battery can no longer serve the highest performance, it dials back on the performance.

The functioning of the battery is determined by fundamental chemical features, which Apple has nothing to do with. The company should have, however, provided more detailed information on the performance management methods of iOS to inform all users of the source of the issue.

From a certain point of view, it is after all Apple’s fault that they left users in the dark. All mobile phones are full of thermometers (typically dozens on a single device), but there are no interfaces that show peak values or how many times the device has been exposed to heat, for how long and at what temperature. Knowing all this, users could make an informed decision on whether it is time to replace the battery.

If you have an iPhone that is older than 2 years and you feel that it has significantly slowed down, a new battery might be the solution.

It is much cheaper than buying a new phone.
