Apple Inc. (AAPL) Nears iPhone Financing Deal With Goldman Sachs

Here you can see the Maximum Capacity of your iPhone's battery - the percentage of charge your phone can hold compared to when it was new.

Note: The method shared here to disable iPhone slowdown works on phones running iOS 11.3 Beta 2 (or above). On newer devices that operate at full battery capacity such as the new iPhone X, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone 8, you won't see a toggle to turn off the throttling feature. If the battery health is able to support the observed peak power requirements, the amount of performance management will be lowered. 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.

Then, we have another piece of info, letting us know how the battery is performing and whether the iPhone's hardware is now being throttled. This is problematic, Apple explains, because the iPhone may require a peak power level the battery is no longer able to provide.

"iOS dynamically manages the maximum performance of some system components when needed to prevent a shutdown".

Apple is still trying to dig itself out of trouble over performance throttling of iPhones that have degrading batteries. While confirming, Apple said that this "feature" will also be coming to more iPhone devices in future. The company also recently launched a new 'Reserve a Battery' wait list system in Canada.

Responding to Thune's question, Apple said "Yes, we are exploring this and will update you accordingly". Now comes word via Reuters that Apple, in a subsequent letter to lawmakers, has indicated that they've seen "strong demand" for replacement batteries.

Finally, if the battery health has degraded significantly, the feature will show this message: "Your battery's health is significantly degraded". Making amends, Apple promised to soon deliver an update that would give users more control over this kind of important performance management. It's been placed inside Settings Battery and is still in testing, so it might change when it's released to the public. It could be made possible by "hardware updates" in the iPhone X, iPhone 8, and 8 Plus. However, users were largely unaware of this performance throttling, leaving them at times frustrated with slower handsets and no clear way to speed them back up.

However, this will not be the case if the battery of your iPhone can't handle peak performance. "More about service options..." Apple also says all devices updating to iOS 11.3 will initially have performance management disabled automatically.
