Apple is in dark water due to experts pointing out the fact that Apple is deliberately slowing down the battery and performance of the older iPhones so that they can force people to upgrade to the new iPhone like iPhone 8, 8 Plus or X. When this category action was exposed, Apple had no place to hide its face. It is certainly going to bring down their reputation at least to the experts. To cover up the whole matter, Tim Cook had to address the problem and said that the next update of iOS is going to let users control the speed and battery of their iPhones. The following are the things you can expect in the next update which Apple claims to change the iPhones forever and open up a new world for smartphones.
The Expected Updates Of The Next iOS –
The next update will be available next month for developers and the next to next month will be the official public release. It will primarily focus on disabling intentional battery slowdown issue. This means that you will be a complete visibility of your battery and you can turn-off battery performance monitoring that is responsible for slowing down the battery. The users will be intimated when iPhone is slowing down the performance of the device to avoid shutdown or restart and the user will have an option to turn off this feature.
Even though the turn off options will be available, Tim Cook has urged iPhone users not to turn it off for lasting the battery and the phone for long. Apple has written an open letter to all the users apologizing about their intentional slowing down of old iPhone batteries due to ageing issue. To compensate that agitation from loyal Apple users, the company has started a battery replacement program and it will cost 2,000 INR only instead of the previous rate 5900 INR. If you have an old iPhone, it is high time you change the battery for such low rate especially if your iPhone is out of warranty. The program is available for iPhone, 6, 6 Plus, 6s, 6s Plus, 7, 7 Plus and SE. This old battery replacement to the new battery will also fix the issue of slowing down of the battery.
Among other notable features, there could be a few AR-related features and changes and new gestures could be included for iPhone X users. Wait for iOS 12 to arrive and make sure you take it immediately to fix all the issues you are facing on your old iPhone suddenly.
