  • The question here is not that Apple did anything wrong in making iPhones with failing batteries last longer on a charge, and avoid unexpected shutdowns due to the failing battery's low current. The question is why Apple didn't inform people that it was making a change to improve the user experience, by avoiding unexpected shutdowns on iPhones with failing batteries by slowing the processor to accommodate the inadequate current provided by the failing battery.

    That question should be followed up by asking how many times has any operating system updates, from ANY developer (including Apple, Google, Microsoft, Amazon, etc.) included a special notice to the user of EVERY code change made to improve the user experience.

    The answer is that this is NOT a common action, and that users would be inundated with a deluge of information if any developer made a point of notifying the user of ALL code changes with each update, and the effect each would have to improve their user experience.

    Unless someone prefers to have their iPhone with a failing battery shut down unexpectedly, and NOT be useable for a longer time (which no sensible person really wants), then this whole issue (and some people's "indignation") is totally senseless.
