Apple Inc has addressed claims that say the performance of older phones is slowed down by the iPhone maker deliberately. It was suspected that the company is trying to force customers to upgrade their phones by making their old phones run slower.
Later Apple published the statement where it acknowledged that it does take some measures to reduce power demands - which can have the effect of slowing the processor. Apple said that the problem is that lithium-ion batteries degrade and older iPhones have problems supplying the big bursts as they age and accumulate charging cycles. According to the company the aim of these measures was to deliver the best experience for customers.
Experts say that this unfortunate situation could have a negative impact on the company’s reputation. However Apple has a large audience of loyal users who are ready to buy new iPhones, no matter what and it will cushion а blow.
