Apple Still Limiting Performance of Old Phones

After revealing in recent years that they have in fact been pointedly limiting the performance of older iPhone models to encourage sales of newer models, it has been reported that Apple plans on continuing with this process with regards to the iPhone 8 and iPhone X.

The process of limiting phone performance, also referred to as throttling, has met with public disdain, with many calling it an unfair business practice, although there is currently no legislation in place that prevents such a practice from being used.

Customers will not be notified if their phone is being throttled, but the information can be accessed via the Battery Health section of the iPhone’s settings menu. Apple has also reduced the cost of replacement batteries for earlier models of iPhones, as part of an attempt to regain the public’s trust.
