Apple may be deliberately slowing down its iPhones to improve their battery life, says a Geekbench report by Primate Labs researcher John Poole. The issue was first noticed by iPhone users on Reddit, who linked the degradation of their smartphone's performance to its battery age. Redditors suggested that Apple fixed the unexpected shutdown issue on its iPhone 6/6S phones with the iOS 10.2.1 update, which “dynamically changed the maximum clock speed relative to the voltage that the battery is outputting”. To confirm this, Poole performed multiple tests on the iPhone 6S and the iPhone 7 running on different versions of iOS.
