IPhone slowdown: Apple CEO Tim Cook clarifies device issues

According to Cook, the upcoming update will shows users the health of their batteries and how much they are reducing the performance.

In an interview with ABC News, Cook discussed a number of recent announcements by Apple, including their plan to invest $350 billion in the USA economy over the next five years and how President Trump's tax plan will help the us economy. The upgrading that will come from Apple will also inform users in a clearer way when exactly the iPhone will automatically reduce its performance in an effort to prevent unexpected shutdowns.

At the end of last year, disgruntled iPhone owners expressed their disappointment, after it emerged Apple had been limiting the performance of older models, confirming what many had suspected for a number of years.

"When we did put it out, we did say what it was, but I don't think a lot of people were paying attention", said Cook in a television interview with ABC News.

More importantly, Cook revealed that, following a future update, the feature can be disabled.

We will tell somebody we're slightly 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. "We don't recommend it because we think that people's iPhones are really important to them and you can never tell when something is so urgent".

"We believe deeply in the power of American ingenuity", said Cook, "and we are focusing our investments in areas where we can have a direct impact on job creation and job preparedness". Just days after the issue got an official confirmation, the iPhone maker faced some lawsuits and mass-level consumer outrage from countries around the globe. To offset the complaints, Apple reduced the cost of replacement batteries to $29 in a public apology to its customers. He discovered that iPhone benchmarks returned to normal levels after replacing the aging battery.

The new option is likely to arrive in March, as part of the next update to iOS 11. Senator John Thune, R-South Dakota, sent Apple CEO Tim Cook a letter with questions about Apple's slowdown feature and its transparency, and requested answers by January 23.
