Yes, your older iPhone is being slowed by Apple

  • Hopefully this one still holds a full charge

Doron Myersdorf, CEO instant-charging battery startup StoreDot, said that "smoothing out" means that phones will reorder incoming commands to make sure not all of them are done in parallel.

So there's good news and bad news for owners of old iPhones.

Professor Subodh Mhaisalkar, executive director of the Energy Research Institute at Nanyang Technological University, said that rather than goading iPhone users to upgrade by making their older phones slower, Apple's move in fact helped consumers by allowing batteries to be used for a longer period.

To address that, Apple's iOS software, starting with last year's iOS 10.2.1, included better power management capabilities, the company says.

Twitter suspends accounts of British far-right group leaders
British Minister of State for Digital Matthew Hancock tweeted that the account suspensions were a "good step forward" for Twitter. Paul Golding, Britain First's leader, and Jayda Fransen , his deputy, can no longer tweet and their past posts no longer appear.

Now, the reason Apple released this update for older devices has a lot to do with the premature shutdowns of the iPhone 6, iPhone 6S, and iPhone SE back in 2016.

In the Reddit post that generated intense interest in Apple's battery strategy earlier this month, a user named TeckFire reported that after noticing that different versions of the iPhone 6 series were running at vastly different speeds, they saw speeds pick up again once the battery on an iPhone 6S was replaced.

If you think your older iPhone seems to run slower, you're not insane.

"Our goal is to deliver the best experience for customers, which includes overall performance and prolonging the life of their devices". Apple charges US$79 to replace batteries not covered under the phone's warranty.

Ryanair set to meet with union for the first time ever today
It forced the budget airline to recognise a pilots' union and brought about talks with IMPACT union scheduled for later today. It also confirmed it will recognise cabin crew unions.

The company said its software updates for the iPhone 6, iPhone 6S, iPhone SE and iPhone 7 are created to "smooth out" peak power demands, prevent these surprise shutdowns and ultimately prolong the lifespan of batteries.

Now affected models are iPhone 7, iPhone 6, iPhone 6s and iPhone SE, with other models potentially receiving the same feature in the future. And because it's so gradual, progressively shorter battery life is ignored by most people, until it's time for a new iPhone.

However, because Apple also markets itself as one of the best in terms of customer service, an additional support for battery fix should not be as drastic.

Apple on Wednesday acknowledged that the company does take some measures to reduce power demands - which can have the effect of slowing the processor - when a phone's battery is having trouble supplying the peak current that the processor demands. Or will they still upgrade to a new iPhone?
