Apple promises to be more upfront with iPhone users about battery health and performance
Apple will be more transparent about the iPhone’s battery performance.
It comes as part of a new agreement with Britain’s Competition and Markets Authority.
Issues surrounding consumer law concerns with Apple were raised last year after it said iPhone users were not being clearly warned that their phone’s performance could slow down because of a software feature designed to manage battery demands.
that explain iPhone battery life and performance, but has now formally agreed with the CMA to continue doing so.
In late 2017, the tech giant caused controversy when it confirmed it had introduced a software feature the previous year which slowed down the performance of older iPhone handsets in order to preserve battery life.
The CMA was worried that users might have tried to repair their phone or replace it because they didn’t realise the software update had caused the handset to slow down. It also said that people found it hard to access information about the health of their phone’s battery, which can degrade over time.
