Apple slows down older iPhone handsets because their batteries prevent them from shutting down unexpectedly. The company did not disclose when it first started doing so, and was outraged when it was discovered. It then apologized, offered to replace the low-cost battery, and gave users control of the so-called performance management feature. Now, a report claims that due to Apple’s lawsuit in France over the slowdown of the iPhone, the company appears to be disabling performance management on older models of the iPhone if the device area is in the country. Is set, so they will run smooth and fast.
According to a report by MyDrivers (in Chinese), users of older iPhone models, such as the iPhone 7, were reporting increased performance after converting France to the region. The publication also managed to replicate a leap in the performance of the N Tutu benchmark on their iPhone 7 model, which impaired battery health (81%). But running a similar test on the new iPhone 12 Pro with 100% battery health did not make a difference, according to the report, although it is related to increased performance with the removal of performance management. However, it is not certain that everything changes when the device area changes.
Instead of changing areas, we advise users who want to improve performance on older models to turn off Performance Management via the Battery section in Settings only. Note, however, that this can lead to unexpected shutdowns.
Apple’s iPhone slowdown first surfaced in December 2017, and the company apologized for the way the move was made, but denied that the slowdown in older phones led to the sale of newer models. The trick was to increase. It also reduced the cost of replacement batteries and introduced a system to allow users to see the health of the battery.
Following an inquiry, French competition watchdog DGCCRF fined Apple 25 million euros (approximately Rs 21,188.32 million) in February 2020 for failing to inform consumers that software updates on their devices Doing so can result in slow performance.
