Previously, Apple said.
At the end of last year it became known that Apple reduces the peak performance of an iPhone with a depleted battery to prevent accidental disconnections smartphones. The company apologized and said that at the latest at the time iPhone 8, iPhone 8 and iPhone Plus X performance limitations will not be because of “better equipment”. However, in iOS 12.1 feature that slows the speed depending on the battery status and got to iPhone 8, iPhone 8 and iPhone Plus X.
Should we worry about?
In the 12.1 iOS on the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X users got the opportunity to see if a function of performance limitations or not. This function is activated only on condition that the iPhone suddenly went dead for lack of battery power. If this option is enabled, users can disable it in the menu “Battery”.
In addition, Apple has updated the page “Battery and performance the iPhone”, which confirmed that starting with iOS 12.1 feature added on iPhone 8, iPhone 8 and iPhone Plus X. On page stresses that:
This feature in the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X may be less noticeable given the advanced hardware and software.
This means that if the performance of the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 or iPhone Plus X will be limited due to depleted battery, users almost won’t notice the difference. The reason is that even with reduced performance these smartphones are really fast and allow you to perform any task. However, the function that limits the speed of the iPhone, as before, can be turned off.
