You know what would've been 💯? If Apple had spent 0.1% of their cash pile by saying "You know what? We want batteries not to be a problem for any iPhone. We offer lifetime warranty on batteries for any iPhone, just bring it in and we'll replace it."

Yeah I just heard back from marketing. We'd like this dialog to lead with "Longevity Boost™ Activated". "To keep your battery functioning perfectly, we are now optimizing your system speed. This will allow your iPhone to operate perfectly in all temperature conditions."

Because I have been using lithium batteries for over a decade. This is the first time I have ever heard performance declines along with the age of the battery. I believe Apple is making design decisions along razor thin tolerances and this is the cost of those decisions. https://t.co/XAxCzQ3rUN

Throttling the iPhone’s CPU to fit the power envelope of a declining battery is that same as halting Mac Pro innovation to fit the thermal envelop of a established design.

This isn’t physics Apple did this to themselves. https://t.co/Vtt5XNB4Tu

Apple painted themselves into a corner. They put too small a battery into a phone with a high-performance CPU. If this is the known behavior of lithium ion batteries then why doesn’t it effect MacBooks? Why doesn’t it effect Android? https://t.co/fj1cnD0n8S

Apple Stores are not allowed to bring a phone in for battery replacement unless there’s a failure. Mobile Genius software blocks you from doing it.

Last thoughts on this: this summer I took iPhone 6 to Apple bc (1) it was slow & (2) I wanted new battery. Apple Genius had no clue on problem #1! Suggested restore! Battery replacement fixed it, but thinking back, not even the Geniuses knew about this. Really poor implementation

@bob_burrough still missing the shadiest part. Let’s suppose your battery degrades before your warranty ends. Your phone would be elegible for a new battery and there’s no way of knowing. This is ilegal.

Sometimes I wonder why Apple didn’t just forgo industry standards on the Mac, skip the USB-C mess, and ship their own proprietary connector instead. I haven’t seen this many issues since consumer SCSI was a thing and at least then you knew you were the one doing something wrong. https://t.co/hqzIJZ48wb

To me this throttling is along those lines. If my choice is between having a slower iPhone and paying $80 for a new battery, tell me, so I can make a choice. Instead, people were left with slower phones and the uncertainty of whether they were just imagining the slowness.

Apple has largely eliminated crashers in their software. But these days, things that go wrong go wrong with no error message. Just silent failure. Like when Handoff doesn’t work. Is the problem with the phone, with the Mac? No hint.

I don’t know that first-hand, but everyone seems to be saying it’s a choice between Apple’s way and Android’s, which doesn’t do anything and therefore you get much shorter battery life.

Here is my take on this iPhone slow down / battery thing.
1) Good that Apple does it but the company should be FAR more transparent.
2) Apple should make it FAR easier to replace iPhone batteries as I said and showed earlier this year in this piece https://t.co/iCmof2NkvB

The question is not "did Apple conspire to convince people to buy new devices." If that were going on (as I've previously said and you've confirmed), that would lead to a revolt.

The question is "Is Apple making good decisions that protect user experience?" That answer is no.
