New iOS Update will Let Users to Disable Intentional Battery Slowdowns: Apple CEO
This decision is taken after people accused and sued Apple for intentionally slowing down iPhones with old batteries to prevent issue that arise as the battery depreciates. Apple also offered battery replacement for $29, as an apology for not informing their users about slowing down of iPhone.
Tim Cook, Apple CEO in an interview told that the new update will arrive next month in a developer release before the global rollout.
During an interview, Tim Cook said that:
“We’re going to give people the visibility of the health of their battery so it’s very, very transparent. “This hasn’t been done before.”
He said that this update will inform users when their iPhone is reducing its performance to prevent unexpected shutdowns. So in case one want to disable it, he/she can. However he also said that its not favorable to shut it down.
iOS 11 developer beta update is expected to release in February. It means global rollout of update will be around March. Apple had already promised to add a feature to iOS in 2018 that will provide more information about battery health.
This is a very significant change to company’s policy, as when first iPhone came in to being, Apple said that iPhone users will never need to replace batteries.
