Apple iPhone 6s last year, a large-scale accidental shutdown, Apple subsequently released iOS 10.2.1 system updates, the successful solution to the problem, but recently experts have found that the system update is not directly handle the shutdown problem or improve battery performance, But by reducing the performance of the iPhone after the battery is aging, that is, let the phone slow down, thereby enhancing the stability.
John Poole, founder of Primate Labs, a benchmarking firm, collected data from his own Geekbench program installed on thousands of iPhones and found that the iPhone 6S with the iOS 10.2 operating system performed at the expected peak performance, but since the new After installing to iOS 10.2.1, the performance is relatively slippery. In the data test chart from the original single peak, into four small peaks, this situation to update the 11.2 system is more obvious.
As for the iPhone 7 test chart, after the iOS 11.2 update earlier this month, also began to show three small peaks, showing that the phone performance is also lowered.
Apple update 10.2.1 system, the outside world once thought that the new system to improve the iPhone’s battery management system so that the phone will not be accidentally shut down due to battery aging, but new evidence shows that Apple is likely to be by deliberately reducing the speed of mobile phones, so that Even if the battery aging, but also to maintain the stability of the phone.
Boer believes Apple’s new iOS operating system will deliberately stifle the old device and deliberately create the illusion that “the mobile phone is slow rather than the old battery” through the update, causing the user to mistakenly think “it’s time to replace the mobile phone,” not “it’s time to change Battery “, thereby inducing users to replace the new iPhone.
