Apple will allow its users to shut the battery management system which slowed down the iPhones

Apple iPhone

Just last month, Apple announced the arrival of its battery replacement program where the users of older iPhones could exchange their batteries at an affordable price. All this was done to ensure the seamless performance of the older iPhones since they were getting slower with software updates. Apple’s forum alluded this issue to battery ageing and stated the arrival of a system which will ensure transparency in the iPhone’s current battery performance. 

However, in an unexpected turn of events, Tim Cook has confirmed that the company will soon allow its users to shut down the power/battery management system completely.

Apple is trying to root out the problem completely and Tim Cook has stated it clearly in an interview with ABC World News, “We will tell somebody we’re slightly reducing, or we’re reducing your performance by some amount in order to not have an unexpected restart. 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 is so urgent…”

You can also check this video out to see the whole interview with Tim Cook where he explains it all in detail:


He also mentioned that this feature will ship to developers first and then it will be extended to all the iPhone users. This is the first time that we have seen Apple taking such an important step which lets a user decide what he/she wants with the device. 

Are you excited for this feature to arrive? Let us know in the comments section below.
