Has your old iPhone slowed down just as Apple has released its iPhone 8 series of smartphones and will soon release its 10th anniversary special edition iPhone X? For a long time, Apple has been accused of ‘planned obsolescence’, making old iPhones less useful so that you buy the new model. Similar suspicion has been cast at the recent release of iOS 11 update that is being seen by some as an attempt to make older phones obsolete.

The tech giant issued a rare statement of explanation on Thursday, saying that it has used software updates to limit the performance of older iPhones that may have battery issues that would cause them to turn off suddenly.

Tech analysts and angry customers have reported in recent days that operating system updates had caused older iPhones to slow considerably, with some suggesting that Apple could be using the tactic to encourage fans to buy new phones.

Apple insists the updates were made with a different goal in mind: It said the performance of lithium-ion batteries degrades over time, which can sometimes cause phones to suddenly shut down in order to protect their components.

The company said its software updates for the iPhone 6, iPhone 6S, iPhone SE and iPhone 7 are designed to “smooth out” peak power demands, prevent these surprise shutdowns and ultimately prolong the lifespan of batteries.

But the updates can also lead to disappointing speeds.

Doron Myersdorf, CEO instant-charging battery startup StoreDot, said that “smoothing out” means that phones will reorder incoming commands to make sure not all of them are done in parallel.

“The inevitable outcome of it will be an inherent slowdown of the average response times by the system,” he explained.

Apple (AAPL) said in its statement that it will continue to use the feature with other products in the future.

“Our goal is to deliver the best experience for customers, which includes overall performance and prolonging the life of their devices,” it said.

The revelation sparked an outcry among Apple fans, with some suggesting they may switch to rival Samsung. iPhones, like many recent Android devices, do not have batteries that can be easily replaced by users. But they can be replaced.
