If you think your older iPhone seems to run slower, you're not crazy. Apple on Wednesday said a software feature released last year makes your phone operate more slowly to offset problems with its aging lithium ion battery.
Of-course this isnt because Apple wants you to buy a new phone, heck no.
Theyre doing it because its for your own good and because they love you.

Still on the Note 4, what a fantastic phone. It, along with the LG V20, might be the last, great smartphones.
The fact you cannot change your own batteries on these smartphones is a dealbreaker for me.
Not sure what I'm going to do as far as a new one but for now the Note 4 (with it's 8-cores and 4gb of RAM) is STILL doing just fine. Sure, it's a little slower than normal, but I'm on battery #3 now. It's literally lasted 3 times longer than any sealed phone could simply because I can change my battery.
Try getting over a days' use on a single charge on ANY phone made in 2014 without changing the battery. Not going to happen!
