In the midst of facing a shortage of replacement batteries for older iPhone models, Apple CEO Tim Cook has said that in an upcoming iOS 11 updates will allow users to disable battery performance throttling on their devices. So in this article, I will tell you about all news regarding future IOS 11 updates.
Future iOS11 Update
In an interview with ABC News, Cook stated that Apple is preparing an iOS 11 update that directly addresses the battery-related slowdown and battery health issues. It will arrive first through a developer release next month, presumably iOS 11.3.
Cook said the iOS update will give people complete visibility about the health of their iPhone’s battery, something that has been said earlier – in Apple’s public apology for not communicating its decision to throttle iPhone performance. He added, that if users so desire, they will also be able to turn off throttling, but of course, it’s not recommended.
“We’re going to give people the visibility of the health of their battery, so it’s very, very transparent,” Cook said in the interview, adding, “This hasn’t been done before.” The Apple CEO went on to say, “In the situation, in which we will tell somebody, saying we’re reducing your performance by some amount in order to not have an unexpected restart. And if you don’t want it, you can turn it off. Now, we don’t recommend it, because we think people’s iPhones are really important to them, and you never can tell when something so urgent. Our actions were all in service of the user, I can’t stress that enough. Maybe we should have been clearer at a point in time, but our actions were always the purest.”
