After apologizing for slowing down older iPhones with its iOS updates, Apple recently agreed to better notify users if upcoming updates will affect the performance of their devices.

The announcement comes after a lengthy investigation launched by the UK Competition and Markets Authority early last year. According to the consumer watchdog group, “To ensure compliance with consumer law Apple has formally agreed to improve the information it provides to people about the battery health of their phones and the impact performance management software may have on their phones.”

Back in 2017, many Apple iPhone users were shocked to find out that the performance of their iPhones began to slow down because of software updates that throttled processor speeds to “extend battery life.” The original remedy to the backlash from Apple was a battery replacement program which has now ended and some settlements paid out for class-action lawsuits.

Stay tuned for more information as the story develops.

In case you missed it, Apple recently unveiled an upcoming eight-core MacBook Pro.
