iPhone Slow: Here Are Options To Replace Apple Battery

Cupertino-based Apple may have betrayed the trust of Apple customers. Earlier this week, Apple admitted that it slows the performance of older iPhones. The tech company claims that such plan was implemented a year ago. The reason: Apple implements such practice to compensate the iPhone’s battery degradation than pushing Apple users to immediately change their iPhones instantly.

On Wednesday, a developer at Geekbench named John Poole discovered that if Apple users are constantly changing iOS may cause the older Apple devices to slow down its performance. In his assessment of the iPhone’s performance and battery age, he claims that both were actually a problem among Apple devices.

Is Apple’s mobile iOS the culprit of battery degradation?

“First, it appears the problem is widespread, and will only get worse as phones (and their batteries) continue to age,” Poole said in a blog post. He tested various iPhone models: Apple iPhone 6, iPhone 6S Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 7S Plus.

Poole particularly blamed the change in iOS to the iPhone’s faster battery degradation. He explained that the difference between Apple’s iOS 10.2.0 and 10.2.1 “is too abrupt to be just a function of battery condition.”

“I believe (as do others) that Apple introduced a change to limit performance when battery condition decreases past a certain point. Why did Apple do this? ,” he asked.

But Apple argued that there are several factors that can contribute faster to the iPhone’s battery degradation. This is but not limited to cold weather, low charge, and the natural way of battery degradation. Apple admitted that such policy was implemented to lessen the impact of battery degradation.

Meanwhile, Apple is using another strategy to engage with the Apple users who are hoping for an improved battery performance. The tech company could sell battery replacement kits to its global subscribers as one of the solutions to the problem.

Why iPhone 8, iPhone X The Most Searched Words in 2017

This year, search engine giant Google has revealed what people across the globe are searching on the internet. Google, in its yearly “Year in Search” blog, has picked two words as the most searched words for 2017: iPhone 8 and iPhone X, CNET reported on Thursday.

Both iPhone 8 and iPhone X topped the most trending search words for this year, according to Google. Based on the global search list, iPhone claimed the top spot among the search terms. iPhone 8 ranked no. 2 while iPhone X ranked no. 3, respectively.

Why iPhone 8, iPhone X?


The inclusion of iPhone 8 and iPhone X in Google’s global search list suggest that 2017 is certainly a big year for Apple Inc. So when Google released the results, it cannot be denied that 2017 is indeed a year for Apple’s smartphones.

The Cupertino-based company has recently celebrated its 10-year anniversary this 2017. To make the celebration worth remembering by the Apple users globally, Apple released the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus including the popular iPhone X. Hence, speculations about Apple’s smartphones were circulating year-round in anticipation of the company’s new flagship phones.


However, the rumors did not directly refer to the iPhone X as the iPhone 8 and the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus as the iPhone 7S and iPhone 7S Plus. The iPhone X was not even close to being rumor until such time that Apple finally announced that it would launch iPhone X. This could be the best reason why iPhone 8 has ranked higher compared to iPhone X.

Search categories

Meanwhile, Google has also used separated terms into categories. This includes Elections, Memes, and Actors. On the consumer tech category, the most searched words are Nintendo Switch (2), Samsung Galaxy (40, Xbox One (5) and the iPhones ranked 1 and 2 respectively.
