IPhone X Suffers From Incoming Call Glitch, Apple Investigating The Issue

10 February 2018

Apple is now in the middle of a self-inflicted scandal after the company admitted that an iPhone software update was slowing down certain devices with older, weaker batteries.

This has been an acute issue for Apple, with the iPhone maker facing analyst concerns about its current flagship device, the iPhone X.

Battery Management: A recent document from Apple says that its newest smartphones aren't as affected by battery management, MacRumors notes. Throttling was coded in the software itself to avoid random shutdowns because lithium batteries have a natural degradation process, and to offset that, Apple cut corners in performance. Expect the iOS 11.3 beta 3 update and the betas afterward to refine Apple's existing plans for the upcoming operating system rather than introducing anything substantial.

But there's a way you can tell if your iPhone is being throttled.

Apple has faced criticism for slowing down older iPhones with its iOS performance management feature, though the company has said it was not throttling performance as such.

Just in case you have one of these phones and you still haven't replaced the battery, Apple has reduced the price from $79 to $29.

Activision Blizzard, Inc (NASDAQ:ATVI) To Release Earnings
Traynor Capital Management Inc.'s holdings in Activision Blizzard were worth $1,901,000 at the end of the most recent quarter. The company has a market cap of $52,520.00, a PE ratio of 47.58, a price-to-earnings-growth ratio of 2.04 and a beta of 1.11.

Compare the number that the app pulls up with what your iPhone's CPU speed should be (you can get this information by doing a quick search online - I find Wikipedia to be a good resource), and if the numbers match up, your iPhone isn't being throttled (as is the case with my old iPhone 6 Plus). In the letter, the company revealed that it would consider extending its reduced-cost battery replacement program beyond 2018. One year the phone is given a significant feature or form factor upgrade, and the next gets component and chip upgrades while incorporating the premium features from the prior year.

Those who want to see their battery health can access the feature by going to Settings Battery Battery Health (Beta). Some users have also reported that, with the new beta version, they've actually had a few gigabytes of storage returned to them. "This feature applies to iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone SE, iPhone 7, and iPhone 7 Plus". However, if your iPhone does randomly shut down due to battery health and performance issues, this feature will automatically enable itself once again to prevent future shutdowns.
