Among all the smartphone companies that exist in the world, Apple’s iPhone enjoys the best loyal customers.
The reason is class they have managed to define over the years. Every time a person holds an iPhone in his hands, it gives them an extreme sense of satisfaction and fulfilment that they have got something which sets them apart from rest.
However, every time they buy an iPhone product we see them crying for the big hole in the pocket it gave them. Also, the users of old iPhone models always complain about bad performance and poor battery life.
Over the years, there’ve been a lot of murmurs and speculations on tech and social media websites that the performance of an iPhone decreases drastically after every iOS update.
Well, the same was proved by a Twitter user recently as he shared the fact that Apple decreases the performance of old iPhone smartphones intentionally. He shared couple of screenshots for proof and wrote-
So it’s true Apple intentionally slow down old iPhones. Proof: My iPhone 6 was bought 3years ago and recently got really slow. APP ‘CPU DasherX’ shows iPhone CPU is under clocked running at 600MHz. After a iPhone battery replacement. CPU speed resumed to factory setting 1400MHz.

Apple confirmed that when a new phone is released they slow the operating speed of old models, claiming it's to maximize the performance the latest tech.
Yeah cuz I'm sure the added effect of frustrated customers giving up and buying the latest model is just a happy coincidence.

I know plenty of people who buy a new iPhone because they are genuinely pissed off at the performance of their previous model. Right or wrong, being upset doesn’t mean people will always change entire ecosystems. They’ll buy new.
