You have already had the impression that your iPhone was getting slower and slower? Apple on Wednesday said a software feature released a year ago makes your phone operate more slowly to offset problems with its aging lithium ion battery. The problems with peak current draws can also occur when batteries are cold or low on charge.
"First, it appears the problem is widespread, and will only get worse as phones (and their batteries) continue to age", Geekbench explained. The processors in those devices wanted to hit faster speeds, but their batteries couldn't handle the demand, prompting some phones to simply switch themselves off.
Apple has further delved into the issue of lithium-ion batteries on its website, which have a limited life span.
Last year's software applied to the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, 6S and 6S Plus and SE. "It's clear that controversies like this - underpinned by conspiracy theories around planned obsolescence - sprout up because there is a lack of communication between device manufacturers like Apple and consumers", said Warren and Statt.
"Our goal is to deliver the best experience for customers, which includes overall performance and prolonging the life of their devices".
Apple said Thursday the updates were actually made with the intent to "smooth out" peak power demands, preventing surprise shutdowns that could be caused by lithium-ion batteries wearing out over time.

A user of the site Reddit has found out recently that the processor of the iPhone became less and less powerful as the battery of the device was of age.
Apple releases new iPhone models annually, and sales of the handsets power its money-making engine.
The company slows down older iPhone models on objective in order to stop users from experiencing technical problems caused by ageing batteries.
Apple apparently rolled out an update to devices that limits performance when battery life starts to dwindle, according to Geekbench, because iPhone 6 devices in particular were shutting down unexpectedly even when the user had taken advantage of its battery replacement programme.
