Hi all,

This week's poll question is about news that Apple announced it is slowing down certain models of iPhones to prevent performance issues related to battery life. Discuss here if you think Apple will have to reverse this practice, and, if you like, the poll results themselves.

Thanks,
Justin

Hogwash---but not being surprised by any of this---I'm certain that this is no different with other devices (Android/Windows/etc.). Manufacturers want your money---they don't give a d--n about how it affects the general populous. Simple solution (assuming it's avoidable with Apple devices), don't upgrade. And yes, WinXP still works fine almost 4 years after MS stopped supporting it---you just have to know what and what not to do with it.

What a great story about this being to prevent issues due to battery life. Maybe there are even folk who believe it. Much more likely it is to prevent issues with their profit margin.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Much inclined to agree with Derek....

Similar situation with other iOS kit...

Older iPads are now slower on the last version of iOS they were permitted to install. I have 9.3.5 on mine and is was much faster prior to the last update for 9.3.x. Also prone to hang and whatever, whereas prior to the last version (as above) it was fine...

I chatted with an Apple floor tech locally and he told me that is was due to the onboard fixed RAM "wearing out..." Also that iPad batteries can't be replaced - always presuming there are issues with older batteries...

This is interesting:

However, it doesn't actually say it will kill off the deliberate slow-down software (unless I missed it).

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
