Sometimes not saying anything, especially when you are a business, is probably smarter than being honest. Although i appreciate the honesty, I feel like Apple just shot themselves in the foot by opening their mouths today.
The company admitted that it has deliberately slowed down older iPhones in order to preserve the life of their batteries, which degrade over time.
But many owners of these older phones aren’t buying this argument, instead suspecting that Apple is slowing down its older phones in order to box customers into buying expensive newer models.
In response, CNN reports that some iPhone users have taken to Twitter to say they’ll be switching to rival phones produced by the likes of Samsung.
