Why Apple\'s Upcoming IPhone Battery Update Is A Bad Idea

MacDailyNews Take: As has been proven with startling consistency for the world’s most valuable company with virtually unlimited resources at their disposal, Apple makes – and, even under Steve Jobs, made – plenty of mistakes. Apple doesn’t always know best (see your Apple TV Siri Remote).

Giving users some additional control won’t kill them – or Apple.

Apple should provide a toggle switch in Settings where users specify if they’d like to keep running at high processor speeds even if it means rapid shutdowns or if they’d like to run at lower processor speeds to accommodate an aging battery that requires replacement.MacDailyNews, December 27, 2017
