The upcoming iOS 11 update will allow users to deactivate the future that artificially slowing them devices if they have older batteries. The promise came personally from the company CEO Tim Cook.

According to him, this update will come in February as a preview version for developers, and then it will become publicly available. In an interview with ABC News, Cook said “We’re going to give people the visibility of the health of their battery so it’s very, very transparent,” he says. “This hasn’t been done before.”

Cook also says the update will more clearly inform users when their iPhone is automatically reducing its performance in an effort to prevent unexpected shutdowns. “If you don’t want it, you can turn it off,” Cook says, though he maintains that this is not recommended — something Apple stands by in its apology letter that addressed consumers after the backlash in December.

The company has also temporarily reduced the price of replacement batteries for the iPhone 6 and later to $29, starting in late January. The price will return to $79 in 2019. Some tech analysts and users alleged Apple was slowing down phones as a way to encourage people to buy new phones.

“We deeply apologize for anybody that thinks we had some other kind of motivation,” Cook told ABC. “Our motivation is always the user.” Post from: GizBrain
