Does Apple slow down its iPads?
After Apple officially announced that it will slow down older iPhones, the question on many minds is whether Apple will slow down older iPads. Does it reduce? Energy management is a complex balancing act, and as batteries age, their ability to provide enough power that the system needs quickly decreases. This may cause the phone to turn off suddenly. Something happened last year with the iOS10.2.1 update for Apple’s older iPhones.
Specifically, Apple It introduced a feature that dynamically manages the phone’s maximum instantaneous speed only when needed to prevent iPhones from suddenly shutting down. This feature was only available for iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 6S, 6S Plus and iPhone SE . But recently, in the iOS 11.2 update, Apple added this feature to the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, whose battery life was also increased. Apple claims that it has included this slow speed in its updates because it wants to provide its customers with the best service and will continue to do so in the future. This means that in the future we should expect the iPhone 8, 8 Plus and even the $1000 iPhone 10 to slow down.
Apple in a statement titled “A message to customers regarding batteries and performance “iPhones” has mentioned that this energy management is only related to iPhones and such changes will not be applied to Apple’s iPads and other products of this company.
Why will this not include iPads?
In 2014, two iPhone 6 and 6 Plus phones were introduced. These two phones had batteries with a capacity of 1810 mAh (6.9 Wh) and 2915 mAh (11.1 Wh), respectively. A month after the introduction of these two phones, the iPad Air 2 was introduced with a 7340 mAh (27.62 Wh) battery. With 4 times more capacity than iPhone, Apid Air 2 has more capacity in peak consumption management, which caused iPhones to turn off suddenly. In addition, according to the type of use of iPads, the way they are charged has less effect on battery life.
This is good news that shows that no iPad is included in Apple’s performance management program so far. has not taken In future iOS updates, users will be able to see how battery life affects their phone’s performance. This feature will most likely be placed in the Settings>Battery menu along with other features of the phone’s battery.
