People in America will sue over anything. This may have legs though.

Im quite sure that Apple could add some software that would/could tell you that your battery may/might be causing your device to slow. For the tech savvy who would know how to get a battery checked to see if it was at EOL it's not so much of a problem.
But to blatantly slow it down without letting people know is very underhanded. With technology as advance as it is do they not realise that they have made most people technology savvy, and understand a lot more than they obviously think.
Rant over I've my two penn'orth.

There are lots of people who use their iPhones for very intensive tasks. Apple should NOT reduce the clock speed on older iPhones with software updates.

Imagine if a car manufacturer updated software in cars and increased the MPG so you bought more fuel to try and get you to buy a newer, more economical car.


I think you mean reduced the MPG and I wouldn't be surprised if they do.

Good statement from Apple, but the damage is done on the PR front.
The iOS update showing battery condition sounds interesting though.

Something for Samsung and Google to get their teeth into in their next round of advertising.

Some of the latest Samsung Notes, if the battery goes to 0%, won't turn on again after charge.

What with that and the previous pocket fire-starters, I doubt Samsung will have anything dismissive to say.

The reason for this post is in the URL. Might be worth a look.
