Apple confirms an update will disable throttling

Chaios tweet

Further, he added, "We're going to give people the visibility of the health of their battery so it's very, very transparent".

While many iPhone owners were upset about the performance drop, many were also outraged that Apple didn't give customers a choice and was not upfront about what it was doing - sparking a slew of lawsuits around the world.

Late previous year, Apple acknowledged it was using software updates to slow down batteries in an effort to prevent them from shutting off suddenly.

Apple put out a statement clarifying that the feature in iOS that intentionally slowed down iPhones was not part of a nefarious "planned obsolescene". "This hasn't been done before", Cook told US ABC News. For those with long message threads spanning months/years, this would be kind of a pity to delete them all, but like we said this is the only fix at the moment. "This has never been done before", he said.

While the apology added that Apple was dropping the charge of out-of-warranty battery replacements from $79 to $29, the announcement did not include Cook's claim about disabling the throttling issue in the future.

"We will tell somebody we're slightly reducing your performance by some amount in order to not have an unexpected restart and if you don't want it, you can turn it off".

Security researchers have noted that despite the bug's name, it is relatively harmless to iPhone and Mac users and is at most useful as a way of "pranking" contacts.

"This feature's only intent is to prevent unexpected shutdowns so that the iPhone can still be used", the company's battery support page says.

Apple test out new apps, features and OS updates with the help of developers or beta versions that individual developers work on before making them public. Apple products are popular just due to their unbeatable performance with new Chipsets, however new Chipsets require more battery and the apps will consume more energy from the device.
