Apple confirms iPhones with older batteries will take hits in performance

Tom Warren and Nick Statt, reporting for the Verge;

Reddit users have noticed that Apple appears to be slowing down old iPhones that have low-capacity batteries. While many iPhone users have experienced perceived slowdowns due to iOS updates over the years, it appears that there’s now proof Apple is throttling processor speeds when a battery capacity deteriorates over time.

After using a phone that drains its battery just 1 hours after being fully charged, I understand why Apple needs to slowdown old iPhone with older batteries but what they failed to do is to inform users about this so called “battery” optimization feature and they could have at least place an option to enable or disable this “feature”.
