With one of the future updates to the iOS operating system, users can manually limit the performance of their devices to enhance their autonomy. Apple CEO Tim Cook said in an interview with ABC News. According to him, the innovation will be available to the participants of the preliminary testing program as early as next month, and later to all the rest.
"In early 2018, we intend to release an update to the iOS operating system with a new set of features that will contain more information about the level of deterioration of your iPhone's batteries," Tim Cook said quoting ABC News. "In this way, users will be able to verify for themselves what impact [изношенная батарея] can have on the performance and overall performance of the smartphone."
Apple began to forcefully limit the performance of its smartphones with worn-out batteries in iOS 10.2.1. For an unknown reason, the company preferred not to talk about it directly, confining a number of hints. A year later, users were able to find out that replacing the battery pack returns the smartphone to its former performance. A huge scandal broke out, resulting in dozens of lawsuits.
