Apple admits slowing older iPhones, says it's to prevent battery issues

If you think your older iPhone seems to run more slowly, you're not crazy.

Apple on Wednesday said a software feature released last year makes your phone operate more slowly to offset problems with its aging lithium ion battery. As batteries get older, they don't hold their charges as well as newer batteries, and can have worse problems when the charge is low or the temperature is cold.

Just called Apple. Rep said he was not aware of the articles about Apple slowing older phones on purpose.

I’ve had as many as 3 downloads/updates in one day.

Called ISP for new phone. iPhone is insured.

:qqb009: so buy a new iPhone.....

No, I’m not buying a new phone. Not paying ISP for a new phone. My phone is paid for, with plans to use at least 5 years. Hundreds of dollars.
There are some saying Apple practice is to get customers to buy new phone.
I filed a claim for replacement phone. I should receive by next week.
I like my SE. I will compare the IPhone 6 to my SE before accepting.
Hate all the downloads. If you do not download new stuff, your device slows down.

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
