As you may have heard, Apple have recently admitted and apologised for slowing down older iPhone models. This is something that many people have suspected for years.
The theory on the street was that Apple would deliberately slow down older iPhones to encourage those customers to upgrade to more up to date and more expensive iPhone models. The more frequently customers upgrade the more cash gets added to the mountain of money Apple has already accumulated ($200 billion approx).
iPhone Battery Life
Apple have denied that this is the reason they were slowing down older phones. They say that it was done to ‘prolong the life’ of the batteries/ iPhones. They have also announced that they will now be selling much cheaper replacement batteries to anyone with an iPhone 6 or older. The price was £79 for a replacement battery, this will drop to £25 so a pretty significant saving.
It’s not clear that the apology and the battery price drop is enough for everyone because they are facing 8 lawsuits in the US alone and this number may of course rise.
