Golly! Some people are excited about being able to take advantage of Apple’s “generous” offer of cheap batteries for earlier-model iPhones. Give me a break. Apple deliberately ripped you off by slowing down out-of-date iPhones. It’s time to stop drinking Cupertino’s Kool-Aid and see Apple for what it really is: rotten.
To get you up to speed if you spent the holiday season having a good time rather than watching technology news: A user discovered that his iPhone 6S was slowing down because its battery could no longer hold a full charge. John Poole, founder of Primate Labs and creator of Geekbench, a cross-platform processor and memory benchmark tool, looked deeper into the battery problem and found that Apple had introduced a function in iOS 10.2.1 that deliberately slowed down iPhones.
