Apple says iPhone Owners can Disable ‘Power Management

Apple says iPhone Owners can Disable Power Management

Apple, after the slowdown of its old iPhones, explained that slower performance was intentional, implemented as a “power management” plan through an iOS update.

The company reveals that it intended to slow down the phones to prevent them from crashing in situations when their worn-out battery couldn’t supply enough power to support demanding functions. However several owners are upset about the fact that the company did not notify such an intention. In fact, it was only discovered through benchmarks. In an apology, Apple lowered the price of battery replacements and promised an iOS update that would inform users when the phone detects battery problems.

On January 18, 2018, in an interview, CEO Tim Cook stated that owners be able to check the health of their battery, as well as turn off the performance-slowing power management, with a warning that it could lead to unexpected restarts.

Cook said “maybe we should have been clearer,” and that Apple’s motivation is always the user, making sure their phone is available for an important photograph or making an emergency call. It is unclear if this will have any power impacts on the device, as only after a month, will developers be able to judge the efficiency of the intended purpose.
