If you noticed that your old iPhone now has a slower performance compared to its good old days, then, you’re right. But, why? Apple has a good reason, they said.

Apple has admitted that the company is slowing down iPhones with older batteries to help the device from suddenly shutting down. So, apparently, it’s not because they have a new flagship smartphone, and they want you to buy this. It is simply because Apple is implementing a safety feature for your device.

"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, if you think that your old iPhone is slowing down, you might consider getting a new battery and not a model upgrade.
