It was reported last week that consumers who were experiencing sluggish performance in their exiting iPhone handsets can resolve the issue by just swapping the batteries of the smartphone. Even though there was no concrete evidence on the problem at that time, John Poole, the Geekbench founder, has now trialed if it is really the case or not.

Biggest Reasons Why Older iPhones Turn Out To Be Slow

A week back, one consumer verified this problem on Reddit. The consumer spoke about the battery mess of iPhone 6s wherein the handset turned off even with 40% of battery remaining. Apple originally thought that this was not an extensive problem. It even provided replacements of battery for most of its consumers. On the other hand, those consumers also encountered the same unanticipated shutdown problem in their iPhones. Apple later claimed that a fix is arriving in the form of an update in the software. When the iOS 10.2.1 was launched, the Cupertino-located tech major claimed that the turn offs were lowered to 70% on iPhone 6 and 80% on iPhone 6s.

Reddit consumers verified that this was due to the fact that Apple, with help of iOS 10.2.1, vigorously reduced the processor’s utmost clock speed. This indicated that the processor might then consumer less voltage from the battery of the smartphones to operate. This led to less consumption of the battery but with sluggish performance.

Poole set out to trial the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 6s handsets to check if the above-mentioned problem was a realism or not. As anticipated, he did notice that in case of the iPhone 6s, the problem turned to be more pronounced with every update of iOS such as 10.2.0, 10.2.1, as well as 11.2.0. In easy words, the trials verified the above statements by consumers. With every update, Apple appeared to have lowered the processor’s utmost clock speed so as to save the degrading battery of the smartphones.
