Some good news today for iPhone fans, especially if you just bought that new iPhone X or an iPhone 8: Apple says no there will be no throttling of performance as the phones age. In a letter to Congress – to Sen. John Thune, specifically – Apple VP Cynthia Hogan spelled out the reasons behind the throttling of older iPhones, something Sen. Thune had pressed Apple for answers to after allegations it was forcing people to upgrade.
Hogan said Apple never uses throttling to encourage people to buy new phones, and she added that the iPhone TX and 8 models have built-in hardware and software solutions that won’t require such steps in the future. Apple has also updated their battery explainer page to include a preview of the new battery data points that will show up in iOS 11.3, which is currently in beta release.
