Next iOS update will let you disable iPhone’s CPU slowdown

Apple’s CEO, Tim Cook, confirmed that users will be given new details about the health of their phone’s battery and disable battery performance throttling on their device in the next iOS update.

In an interview with America’s ABC News, he told that the next update will be more transparent about the health of your phone battery. Users will also be able to decide whether to reduce your phone’s performance to extend battery life.

We’re going to give people the visibility of the health of their battery so it’s very, very transparent. This hasn’t been done before. We will tell somebody ‘We’re slightly reducing your performance by some amount in order to not have an unexpected restart.’ And if you don’t want it, you can turn it off. – Tim Cook, Apple CEO

Last year, Apple admitted that it was using software updates to slow down or low charge batteries in an effort to prevent sudden shutdowns. The next iOS update will be rolled out to developers next month and public release will follow.

    What about ipads? Mine is an ipad 4. It’s lagging so much and often times it freezes up that I have to do a hard reset frequently.

    Tapos sasabihin nila “our motivation is always the user”. Kakatawa. Bakit nila pinipilit mag upgrade mga users nila? Maybe it should be “our motivation is always the user’s MONEY”.

    Too late the hero. Damage has been done. I know some iphone users were disappointed and got mad at apple’s forcible actions to upgrade to latest iphones but instead they shifted to android.

    Apple had been doing those kind of acts at their mobile devices, laptops and PCs ever since via taking out support both for hardware and software. They want their customers to upgrade to their latest wether they like it or not.

    This is 1 of the 4 reasons why i never like apple products.
