    'We want to help America,' Apple CEO Tim Cook says of moving foreign money back to US - ABC News

    Overall it sounds like Apple is finding a compromise on this whole situation. So now that we’ve been given choices, what is your choice? Throttle to preserve your battery? Or utilize all the performance possible with the risk of issues?

    I think I would go the performance route until I start noticing issues, personally.

    For me it would be Full Throttle until it quits .

    Lol. Where will this saga end? Next, we’ll hear that Apple is deliberately killing off batteries in performance mode.

    Performance,then new battery, the way it should always have been.

    My choice would be performance. If my phone starts shutting down due to battery age then it’s time to get a new battery or new phone. I have a feeling most would choose that option.

    I'm in the same boat. I'd side with performance and replace the battery as needed.

    I also would choose performance and then a new battery.... unless, of course, I wanted the newest version of iPhone .

    Probably performance. Then if I need to slow down the CPU, I can always enable Low Power Mode.
    To be honest, for most users on this forum, it's really a moot point. Most here upgrade every year or two, thus would not likely see the slowdown.

    This is how it should have been since the beginning, not apple forcing the customer to a new phone because they throttled the processor.

    They never forced anyone to upgrade, and most people would never notice being “throttled”

    Who do you know was "forced" to buy a new phone? I don't know anyone who was. I do know many who chose a new phone, rather than buy a new battery. I usually upgrade when my battery gets that degraded.

    I was. Even at the apple store they said it was the phone. If they told me it was the battery then that would be one thing, but they didn't. I was told it was the phone therefor I was forced to get a new phone.

    The phone was fine until I updated iOS therefor it wasn't the phone.

    I have a problem with “I was forced to get a new phone”. Don’t get me wrong. I understand what you’re saying, but ‘force’ is what I disagree with. Being led to believe a newer phone would solve the problem is not the same as being forced to buy a new phone.

    Except that people were forced to get a new phone. They were never given the option from Apple Store employees to fix the battery. They either had to deal with a terribly slow phone or get a new one, and since that nobody wants to use a slow device, they were forced to get a new one.

    Next month, the battery options come out. Per Tim Cook. So probably 11.3 since 11.2.5 is coming out next week.

    I think when people hear the word "forced" they assume Apple held a gun to your head and said you must get a new phone or you die, which obviously isn't the case. I think "forced" implies that those people didn't have a choice. But they did. They could have either dealt with a degraded phone, or upgrade. They made the choice to upgrade, thus they weren't "forced".

    I definitely get what you're saying when you say they were forced. If you want a phone that works properly, your only choice is to upgrade. Thus you're "forced" because you don't have an alternative.

    That said,

    forced
    [fawrst, fohrst]

    adjective
    1.
    enforced or compulsory:
    forced labor.
    2.
    strained, unnatural, or affected:
    a forced smile.
    3.
    subjected to force.
    4.
    required by circumstances; emergency:
    a forced landing of an airplane.
    I'm interested in how anyone can say the 4th definition of the word "forced" doesn't qualify.

    What phone was that? I'm assuming it was before you made this thread on September 18, 2017 showing that you had full intention of upgrading to an 8 Plus or an X, regardless.

    The other option is buy a new battery.

    Terribly slow? Lol It's the same thing as Low Power Mode. I can't tell any difference when I have that enabled. Maybe some who thought it was the Apple slowdown, actually had other issues.
