As you may have heard by now, Apple was slowing down older iPhones in the past without letting their customers know about it. It later turned out that it wasn’t a fault, it was planned to work that way to prevent accidental shut downs and other issues from happening.

According to Tim Cook, IOS 11 users will be able to opt out of the CPU slow down ‘feature’ that was implemented not long ago. The feature is expected to be available in the next IOS update which is scheduled for March 2018.

“We’re going to give people the visibility of the health of their battery so it’s very, very transparent.”

said Tim Cook in a recent interview to ABC. The update will also tell its users more clearly and automatically if their devices are performing and turning on any features in order to protect the devices. Although there will be a toggle to switch the feature on, Apple and Tim Cook will still NOT recommend using it.
