2017 iPhone models less susceptible to performance throttling

SEC FORM 4 - SEC.gov

Apple had recently slashed the price of battery replacement service across the world after the company was criticised for intentionally slowing down iPhones. One such lawsuit was filed by Stefan Bogdanovich and Dakota Speas, the suit claims that Apple's deliberate effort to throttle CPU performance on the iPhone amounts to "breach of contract".

Apple is facing heat over the battery and performance saga. Granted, a battery replacement would speed up throttled iPhone models, but replacing the battery doesn't come cheap.

A decision to offer a rebate to customers could help offset some customer outrage, but it might also add to investor jitters about the cost of Apple's strategy for defusing the bad PR. This feature is available on all iPhones released after iPhone 6. You love to live your life on the edge, feel free to enroll in Apple's beta program and get the free software before everybody else. iPhone users were angry because Apple performed these actions without offering any indication that the throttling was happening. However, the user was never informed properly of what is going on and why their iPhone has suddenly slowed down in performance and responsiveness. A battery's impedance can increase if a battery has a higher chemical age. While Apple doesn't suggest turning the feature off, customers will be able to do so if they wish. It will display Maximum capacity of battery and whether Peak performance Capability is turned on.

The iPhone X and the latest iPhone 8 models won't be affected by power management issues, said Apple, because they contain "hardware updates" that process battery and power better than older models. The feature will apply on all iPhone 6 and later devices. US regulators have also begun probing Apple for information on the slowdown. "As a result, the impacts of performance management may be less noticeable on iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X. Over time, the rechargeable batteries in all iPhone models will diminish in their capacity and peak performance and will eventually need to be replaced". "Such basic performance management is required for safety and expected function, and can not be turned off", Apple told Business Insider in a statement. Additionally, this section will inform the users if the battery's health has been degraded significantly. Armbruster Capital Management Inc. now owns 911 shares of the iPhone maker's stock worth $131,000 after purchasing an additional 78 shares in the last quarter.

Apple has said the goal of the slowdown was to "smooth out" peak power demands and prevent older iPhones from sudden shutdowns as their lithium-ion batteries degrade. In a long support document, Apple mentioned the process raised concerns on how an iPhone works after the tweaks are applied. Every user should now be able to directly check if their phone is being slowed down at any point because of the operating system update.

In some instances, the feature might also flash the message "Battery health unknown" where iOS is unable to determine the device battery health. One is the maximum capacity of their device's battery and the second is its peak performance capability. You have manually disabled performance management protections.
