Apple will give users the option to control their own battery’s destiny
Apple announced big economic plans yesterday, but CEO Tim Cook also touched upon what the company will do in the future to address the grievances brought by users about its recent iPhone performance-slowing controversy. In an interview with ABC News, Cook said that new software updates will allow users with older iPhones to turn off the power management feature that intentionally slows down device performance.
“We will tell someone we’re reducing your performance by some amount in order to not have an unexpected restart,” Cook said. “And if you don’t want it, you can turn it off.”
