    What is slowing down exactly? Are speeds being throttled or is the iPhone itself more likely to lag as a result of this Apple update? What's it like watching youtube videos? Do videos have to buffer for a while?

    I'd rather have a slower iPhone that is actually working than one that keeps shutting down. There's no noticeable change in performance with the software change. My iPhone 6S used to shut down on a daily basis after reaching anywhere from 30-60% charge. Now its working fine. Maybe Apple's lack of transparency to the fix was poor from a PR perspective but I'm just personally glad my phone still works and I don't have to dish out another $700 just yet.

    I'm just glad that the whole Apple vs. Android debate is finally over. Android is clearly better and don't take advantage of they're consumers. If your a victim of this scam, Just know that you deserve way better. We all work hard for our money. Don't continue to keep giving it to Apple. Steve Jobs is doing somersaults in his grave. Unbelievable.

    I own a 6 plus and can confirm it has bogged down considerably after update, I will probably go Android for next purchase. Sucks because it was a good device.

    Lol. You guys are overblowing this. This happens to Macs to. And many other computers I know. It’s the ideal thing to do. And actually it shows in battery settings to change your battery just like it does on MacOS.

    Trying to avoid lawsuit so they came up with a reason! If not it should say do you wish to slow down your phone to save battery yes/no?

    Solution? Phones should have replaceable batteries, to begin with like the old days. Well, at least android used to have it.
