Apple has rolled iOS 13 to all iPhone devices that support it. This week, the Cupertino-based technology giant has rolled out iOS 13.1 too.
Quoting GSM Arena, Saturday (9/21/2019), on September 24, Apple will release iOS 13.1 to users. The update will add a CPU throttling or slowing (down) feature to the iPhone XR and XS.
Apple’s steps to throttle iPhone performance had been done before. Apple first admitted throttling CPU on an older iPhone in 2017, which sparked controversy among users.
So what’s the purpose of iOS 13.1 Bringing the CPU Throttling Feature?
Many think, how Apple slows CPU performance on older iPhones in an effort to get its users to upgrade their older devices to newer ones. However, Apple argues that the purpose of throttling is to overcome the random shutdown that will be experienced by the iPhone with an old battery.
Following the coming attack, Apple finally added a toggle, so users can have the option to enable or disable it.
This feature will only be activated when a low battery is detected. However as previously said, users also still have the option to turn off the CPU slowing feature.
The iPhone 2019 is equipped with more sophisticated performance management features. With this feature, it should be able to reduce the impact of this throttling if the user desires it so.
