CPU throttling will be optional on the next version of iOS
January 18, 2018

Tim Cook said that the feature will appear in a future version.

Apple is still facing scrutiny and several class action lawsuits after admitting that it has been intentionally slowing down smartphones whose batteries have started to degrade. It said that this was done to prevent the unintentional shutdowns on iPhones.

Despite Apple apologizing and offering discounted battery replacements for the affected devices, many are still not convinced and are now worried about their iPhones especially on how it will perform after a year when the batteries start to age.

Apple CEO Tim Cook has now said that it will be introducing a new way to monitor battery performance in an upcoming iOS update. He said that it will be showing the device’s battery health in a way that hasn’t been done before.

Along with that, a future iOS update will now give you an option to turn off throttling on the CPU – though this is something that Apple is still not recommending.
