I don’t want the iPhone to be the fastest phone if Apple’s just going to throttle it in a year
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.
