So, why does Apple slow down older iPhone’s?
Apple has stated that the lithium-ion batteries weaken over time, which means that iPhone’s can suddenly turn off even with a 20% charge remaining. This is because the battery can no longer power the device as well as it previously could have.
What iPhone models are affected?
The battery software update that was released last year now affects the following phones:
- iPhone 6
- iPhone 6 Plus
- iPhone 6s Plus
- iPhone SE
How can you upgrade your iPhone’s battery?
The easiest way of upgrading your new battery is by contacting a local repair centre to book an appointment and booking in for a battery replacement.
Square Repair in London offer fast, 30 minute repairs on all iPhone battery replacements. You can select this option when making an appointment online for an extra £10. If not, your repair will still be completed and will be available for collection the same day.
