Apple did the right thing last week, addressing its own iPhone slowdown mess by apologizing to users and offering battery replacements that are significantly cheaper than before. That said, as a long-time iPhone user, I still have issues with Apple’s apology, especially given that Apple plans to keep throttling iPhones for the foreseeable future.
I already explained what I think are the main problems with Apple’s way of fixing iPhone slowdowns, and that only made me realize one more thing: I don’t want the iPhone to be the fastest phone available if Apple plans to slow it down after a year of regular use.
