Apple are obliged to give complete and detailed information regarding how future updates will affect the performance of the iPhone. It is reported by the British Office of competition and markets (Competition and Markets Authority, CMA). According to the regulator, these obligations apply not only on current but also on future innovations.
As we remember, at the end of 2017, Apple has admitted to slowing iPhone. As noted by the company itself, this was done for the benefit of users, in order to prevent sudden disconnection under load or at low temperature. But the Corporation has not warned users about the slow performance of the smartphone. The result — the courts around the world, the losses from preferential replacement of batteries, and also decrease the confidence of the users.
But it’s not so bad. The company is also interested in governing bodies, in particular the British control competition and markets. The Ministry said that iPhone owners were forced to fix or exchange their smartphones, because they do not know that their work is slowed down because of software updates. After investigation, Apple was put forward certain requirements.
The desired goal was achieved — Apple has agreed to the terms of the regulator. The Corporation will provide complete and detailed information about the battery status, and unexpected outages, and also offers options to increase battery life. In addition, the company undertakes to inform users of possible performance degradation after installing the new version.
Recall that in iOS 11.3 has a built-in tool for monitoring the battery status. It is possible that this is not limited and Apple will add more options.
