Apple began to slow down last year's iPhone XR, XS and XS Max

In a few days, on September 24, Apple will release iOS 13.1, which will slow down last year's iPhone XR, XS and XS Max.

What does it mean

The company has been using this practice since 2016.but only in 2017 did users learn about this. It turns out that in order to preserve the life of the old battery and avoid sudden shutdowns of the smartphone, Apple secretly reduced the performance of some models.

Many are sure that in this way the companydoes not extend battery life, but forces users to buy new models. As a result, a scandal erupted, and Apple had to give the user the right to choose: slow down their smartphone or maintain performance at the expense of the battery.

With the release of the iPhone 11 trio came the turn of last year's flagships. Now the iPhone XR, XS and XS Max will also have an option to control the gadget’s performance.

Let us remind you that the new iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Proand iPhone 11 Pro Max, a power management system has appeared that controls both software and hardware components. This system allows you to slow down battery degradation and maintain the performance of the device.
