马修·Panzarino TechCrunch的写作:

Here’s a statement that Apple provided when I inquired about the power profile that people were seeing when testing iPhones with older batteries:

“Our goal is to deliver the best experience for customers, which includes overall performance and prolonging the life of their devicesLithium-ion batteries become less capable of supplying peak current demands when in cold conditions, have a low battery charge or as they age over time, which can result in the device unexpectedly shutting down to protect its electronic components.

Last year we released a feature for iPhone 6, iPhone 6s and iPhone SE to smooth out the instantaneous peaks only when needed to prevent the device from unexpectedly shutting down during these conditionsWe’ve now extended that feature to iPhone 7 with iOS 11.2, and plan to add support for other products in the future.”

Panzarino的文章(毫无疑问)好,冷静的看故事基本上,苹果正在画该死的如果他们这样做,如果他们不该死的角落里iOS去年增加这一特性之前,iphone与旧电池下降征税在高峰时意外关闭性能这显然不是很好现在,iphone与旧电池进行节流下降,在必要的时候,让他们运行But now Apple faces accusations that they’re deliberately slowing these devices down to convince people to buy new iPhones要记住的一点是没什么苹果可以做锂离子电池下降这一事实不管怎样,老常用的iphone会受到影响我认为苹果在做什么这是一个合理的平衡之间的权衡。


Apple should examine whether the gap between when the algorithm starts smoothing out the peaks of performance and when they’re notified that their performance is taking a hit due to battery age is too largeIf a person is noticing (and it seems they are given the discussion threads and social activity on this) that their phone is running slower then they need to know为什么

The point at which iOS will tell you that your battery has gone to hell is currently very,非常保守的Perhaps this can be set to be more aggressiveThen, of course, users will complain that Apple is cash grabbing on battery replacements but humans will remain humans.


I get the whole “it’s better to clock your phone slower rather than have it randomly crash” aspect to this storyIt’s more the fact that Apple wasn’t upfront about it, and thus we’ve all been telling people “no, your phone isn’t getting any slower”Turns out, it was.



If older iPhones suffer upon being updated to iOS 7 — getting slower, or worse battery life, or失去wi - fi— to such a degree that the users conclude they now need to buy a new phone, would not the most likely and logical result be that it would inspire many of them to switch to Android (or Windows Phone, or anything) rather than to buy another iPhone?

If your car breaks down after just a few years, are you not more likely to replace it with a different brand? To posit that Apple customers are somehow different, that when they feel screwed by Apple their response is to go back for more, is “Cult of Mac” logic — the supposition that most Apple customers are irrational zealots or trend followers who just mindlessly buy anything with an Apple logo on itThe truth is the opposite: Apple’s business is making customers happy, and keeping them happyThey make products for discriminating people who have higher standards and less tolerance for design flaws or problems.


工程水平,多年来我听说苹果从多个来源,即使这样的规定发行的,它会导致起义如果一些目光短浅的高管要求一个iOS软件更新渲染旧iPhone硬件人为缓慢,工程师负责这项工作几乎肯定对象Even if some unscrupulous engineer were willing to implement such a booby trap, how would they keep other engineers on the team from noticing it, fixing it, and figuring out who was responsible? Something along the lines of “if (deviceAgeInYears > 2) { [self _runFuckingSlow]; }”是要在代码审查伸出后住进iOS源代码。

Would they resign in protest if their objections were ignored? Yes, actually, they would真的它不像软件工程师与苹果体验他们的简历很难获得在其他公司的工作机会苹果吸引了那些想做伟大的工作,。
