Ever since the release of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, users have begun pointing out that older iPhones start getting slower around the time a new one is set to release.

At the end of last year, disgruntled iPhone owners expressed their disappointment, after it emerged Apple had been limiting the performance of older models, confirming what many had suspected for a number of years.

In an exclusive interview with ABC News this Wednesday, Apple's CEO Tim Cook said that iPhone users will soon be able to turn off the power management feature on their devices that slows down iPhones when batteries are low on charge.

Airstrikes Pound Syria's Afrin As Turkey Launches 'Operation Olive Branch'
The United States is backing the YPG in Syria, seeing it as an effective partner in the fight against Islamic State group. But the Syrian Kurdish YPG said that civilian areas were also hit, including Afrin's city centre.

At the beginning of his interview with ABC, Tim Cook confirmed what the company had announced earlier that it would invest $ 350 billion in the U.S. economy over the next five years, creating more than 20,000 new jobs.

"We know that some of you feel Apple has let you down". This was done to prevent accidental shutdowns as the degraded batteries would find it hard to manage a surge in processing power. "And if you don't want it, you can turn it off".

Apple had also promised to introduce additional features to its software and iOS to provide more information about the battery health in early 2018, so that users are well informed when their batteries are no longer capable of supporting maximum phone performance.

Neighbor charged with felony assault against Rand Paul
Paul and Boucher's neighbors have also voiced much speculation, saying that the two had had a fraught relationship for years. Boucher, who attacked Rand Paul in the fall of 2017, was charged with assaulting a member of Congress on Friday.

Now, we don't recommend it, because we think that people's iPhones are really important to them, and you never can tell when something is so urgent, and our actions were all in service of the user. Another CNBC reporter made an appointment at Best Buy to replace the batteries on her two iPhone 6 models, and was turned away because the store was out of stock. To make up for what it had done, Apple sliced 63% off the price of a battery replacement for the iPhone 6 and later, cutting the price to $29 from $79 for the remainder of the year. A slash in battery prices followed the company's apology last month, with the admittance leading to the US Senate contacting Apple.

The latest update on the iOS11 is expected to arrive this March.
