Apple To Planet Earth: You’ll Be Able To Disable Throttling For Aging iPhone Batteries

Speaking to ABC News, Apple CEO Tim Cook revealed the company will be releasing an iOS update which will enable users to disable intentional CPU throttling of devices with aging batteries. So for you iPhone 6 and 6S users, it means that if you’re willing to risk you phone shutting down every so often, you’ll get all the performance that you crave. He also took the opportunity to again apologize for “Batterygate” saying that Apple did tell users about these iOS updates and what was happening when it came to throttling back performance, “but I don’t think many people were paying attention” when they were released.

The update that Cook spoke of is apparently due next month. It will be interesting to see if that update quiets “Batterygate” down or ramps it up even further.
