From the latest apocalyptic Apple controversy it has been gathered that finally, android users have substantial evidence to hold Apple guilty with charge. This was an urban tech legend that many thought to be untrue that after updating their iOS, an iPhone becomes slow. The tech giant has even confessed to it that with the help of installing software updates into older models of iPhones it has been restricting the swiftness of performance that the iPhones are oh so known for. All Apple has to say in its defense is that the firm had to take such steps in order to avoid the customers from confronting a battery issue that would cause the phones to shut down unexpectedly whenever the version of iOS is updated. So, is it true? And if is, then to what extent?
Tech psychoanalysts or experts and loyal customers were all greatly hurt after receiving this dreadful news. Many accused Apple of deception stating this scheme as a ruse to encourage trusting customers to buy newer, more expensive models. While, some even sued because Apple did not put up to their expectations. However, the controversy took a sharp turn when Apple denied having any such fraudulent goals in mind when conjuring this update. To an extent they are even true to their word but who knows what they were really up to?
They insist that the lithium-ion batteries in the older models of iPhones decays eventually, subsequently after every new iOS update the battery peaks which can lead to the phone shutting of suddenly. In order to contain the battery and keeping its customers satisfied, Apple had to install these updates thus invoking a divorce between performance and battery! The performance has to be compromised in order to keep your phone working smoothly. This problem will occur in the iPhone 6, 6S, SE and even iPhone 7.
The irony of the situation is that didn’t Apple always boast that their processors transcend the Snapdragon, and now if they go around making these changes means that their phones cannot last to their truly advertised condition for more than a year. Does that mean that iPhones are now susceptible? Or does it mean that they are being advertised correctly in the first place? Maybe, it’s just not worth the money and its time you moved on to Samsung. Where, some actually believe that iPhone has a pure intention of satisfying its customers by making their devices last longer with the help of this software, others are certain that only one side of the bargain is being kept.
Customers have launched an enormous amount of complaints claiming that iPhone too has now turned into a pretend firm, disappointing them greatly. Various loyal patrons are still true to their tech god and understand that what Apple is doing is to an extent smart in terms of retaining its clientele because, if the software updates were not mounted the phones would have start turning off eventually dragging Apple back into the same loop of accusations. And now when it is trying to solve the issue, doubtful consumers insist on marking their act as unethical.
The thing that leaves us into great contemplation is the fact that there was an immense deal that was missed out in Apple’s explanation. It was questioned by intelligent users that, why does the fourth generation iPod that is too old to put a number on its real age, works perfectly well without shutting down? Does it not have the same battery?
This leaves us on the ledge waiting for an “actual” response to support the massive step that Apple will continue to take in its future updates. How long should we wait? Or should we just shift to better contenders that are actually cheaper and at least honest and value for money.
