    You have noticed that your iPhone has deteriorated over the years? You don’t have the straight.

    Apple confirms the rumor : it slows down voluntarily to hand over their old phones when updates to the operating system.

    The computer giant has been forced to justify themselves after this situation had been first reported by internet users on a forum, and then resume on the site, Geekbench, where the performance tests proved that the poor performance of the device.

    The company confirms this fact, but denies, however, fall into the planned obsolescence and ensures that she has good reasons to do so. She explained that it is a strategy to preserve the batteries of the older models and ensure that they do not empty all of a sudden, forcing the device to shut down spontaneously.

    “Lithium batteries are less efficient with time to cope with peak demand when it is cold, when their load is low or when they are of age, which can cause the crash of the device to protect its electronic components “, detailed the company apple, in a press release.

    Apple says it has designed this strategy to slow down the iPhone IS, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6S so that they remain functional. “We have also extended this way in iPhone 7 with iOS 11.2,” added the company.

    To cope with this slowdown, it seems that the solution lies in changing the batteries in the iPhone, while avoiding the updates proposed for the old devices.
