Check if Apple is slowing down your old iPhone
So it is clear with everyone that Apple is intentionally slowing down your old iPhone, and according to Apple this measure has been taken to provide better battery performance out of old iPhones, but still people are outraged over the issue.
So what Apple’s doing here is restricting the processor of iPhones with old batteries that cannot hold on with proper charge. They say that old batteries are not able to provide that peak performance required and may cause a shutdown in the phone and to avoid that this update was issued.
So we’re going to tell a way to find out if Apple is slowing down your iPhone.
The iPhones that are affected are iPhone 6, iPhone 6S, iPhone SE, and iPhone 7. Then check the software update, for iPhone 6, iPhone 6S and iPhone SE it was iOS 10.2.1 update and for iPhone 7 it is iOS 11.2.
For the final answer head to benchmark scores. Geekbench scores for new iPhones are as follows:
- iPhone 6S: 2500
- iPhone 7: 3500
If your score is anything below a difference of 500 points, then maybe there’s a problem.
