The Older iPhone Battery Problem Fix Is Closer Than We Initially Thought

Towards the end of December, news broke that Apple was slowing down the performance of older iPhones. Their reason revolved around attempting to save the life of older batteries.

While swapping out the battery is an easy fix for a slowing phone, many users weren't aware of this. As each update got delivered, phones continued to operate slower. 

To alleviate upset users, Apple's CEO, Time Cook, discussed changes the company's implementing. 

Apple will release a software update allowing users to monitor their battery's performance and turn off the phone's functionality that slows down the device. In an interview with ABC News, Cook explained the company's shortcomings in alerting people and what the update will end up doing. 

“We will tell somebody we’re slightly reducing, or we’re reducing your performance by some amount in order to not have an unexpected restart. If you don’t want it? You can turn it off. Now, we don’t recommend it, because we think people’s iPhones are really important to them, and you never can tell when something is so urgent…”

While the explanation and solution were sound, not everyone was on board with Apple's apology, with many upset they already had to pay $79 to replace their outdated battery. 

Other users seemed to understand and were more forgiving of the incoming update.
