IOS 11.2 Beta Update Brings New Battery Health Feature

Apple is presently embroiled in a messy controversy involving older iPhone models that slow down in terms of performance after they reach a certain period of usage.

iPhone X and iPhone 8 users don't have to worry about throttling practices, according to Apple.

Barclays' analysis is based on a study of 30 Apple retail stores, and the wait times they're now quoting for battery replacements.

Obviously, users were not happy with when they also discovered that Power management will be automatically enabled if the iPhone shuts down unexpectedly.

"Apple has also promised the committee some follow-up information, including an answer about additional steps it may take to address customers who purchased a new battery at full price", Thune said.

iOS 11.3 officially ships this spring as a free update for iOS 11-compatible iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch models.

Apple has faced criticism for slowing down older iPhones with its iOS performance management feature, though the company has said it was not throttling performance as such. With your iPhone connected to the Mac running coconut Battery, you get access to metrics about your iPhone that can help you determine if it's worth spending $29 on a new battery.

Already who owns the other models, the only way that Apple has managed to "apologise" to its customers has been offering a discount on battery replacement; and in Brazil, the procedure goes for $45 in official stores and authorised dealers.

In response to the controversy surrounding Apple admitting that it slows down the processor speed of older iPhones when their batteries degrade to the point that they're no longer able to deliver peak performance, the company has added the ability for users to toggle throttling on and off.

Those who want to see their battery health can access the feature by going to Settings Battery Battery Health (Beta).

Did you pay full price for a replacement iPhone battery? The third-party software you need is called coconut Battery, and you need a Mac because there's no Windows/Linux version of the software available. "This feature applies to iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone SE, iPhone 7, and iPhone 7 Plus".

An important thing to note here is that Apple also said that all iPhones contain basic performance management features necessary for safety and to protect the components inside the phone.
