It’s not your imagination.
There has been a lot of chatter since September – when Apple released the new OIS 11 for iPhone – about battery drain and phones becoming much slower to respond and perform tasks.
Now, Apple has admitted that to be the case.
Here’s Apple’s statement on the matter:
Our goal is to deliver the best experience for customers, which includes overall performance and prolonging the life of their devices. Lithium-ion batteries become less capable of supplying peak current demands when in cold conditions, have a low battery charge or as they age over time, which can result in the device unexpectedly shutting down to protect its electronic components.
Last year we released a feature for iPhone 6, iPhone 6s and iPhone SE to smooth out the instantaneous peaks only when needed to prevent the device from unexpectedly shutting down during these conditions. We’ve now extended that feature to iPhone 7 with iOS 11.2, and plan to add support for other products in the future.
So yes, Apple is intentionally slowing down your older iPhone with each new IOS update you install, but it’s for a logical, and non-evil reason.
Also, they want you to buy a newer iPhone.
