I am not sure if I am the only one that notices but every time an update to my iPhone occurs my phone acts like a dinosaur. It seems so much slower than before the update, each and every time. Why?
Even though I have not downloaded any new mobile apps and am not using my iPhone any more than I previously was, the phone is downright slow. I have heard it repeatedly from many iPhone users, but it seems to continue. That leads me to wonder if it’s happening, is Apple doing it on purpose.
Some investigating into the health of the iPhone has been done over the years by several different outlets. Some truth has been found to the claim as some users have found that once the batteries of older iPhones are replaced the phones seem to speed up. What was found is that Apple’s iPhone processor seems to slow down after the battery hits several recharge cycles.
The issue in the past with iPhone batteries is that they have said there was life left on the battery, but the phone still shuts down without warning. It was found that the same processor is used in in a variety of iPhones and the issue occurs throughout. Apple also stated that they use Lithium-ion batteries which become less reliable in colder temperatures, when the battery has a low charge, or it is an older battery.
When an iPhone battery or processor ages it naturally decreases in efficiency and apps perform slower. To combat this known defect Apple released a feature that helps to level out peak instances. The new feature prolongs the battery by slowing it down over the lifetime of the phone.
Solutions To Speed Problems
If the speed of your mobile apps is affecting the way in which you interact with your phone there are a couple of things that users have offered as solutions. One is to replace the batteries in the phone. This simple fix allows the phone to basically function as new. The battery life is set back to one. Now, this process is not as simple as changing the batteries in your television remote. To update the battery in your iPhone you will need to make an appointment at one of many Apple stores. Having the battery replaced at an Apple store also help to avoid voiding the warranty.
Users can also choose to upgrade their phones. Most note that IOS updates always seem to occur around the release of a new model iPhone, coincidence? I think not!
