ON Geekbench confirms the presence of performance issues from aging of Apple's smartphone

IXBT.com (http://www.ixbt.com) — specialized Russian information-analytical server, covering the hardware of personal computers, communications and servers, 3D graphics and audio, digital photo and video, Hi-Fi equipment and projectors, mobile phones and peripherals, gaming applications and more.

A Week ago we reported that some smartphones and even laptops can reduce performance deterioration of the battery. This is allegedly due to Apple's desire to reduce the burden on middle-aged the batteries by reducing the frequency of the CPU.

interestingly, users have noticed that manifested this feature after the update iOS 10.2.1, which Apple has solved the problems with the shutdowns of the iPhone 6s, observed by some users.

ACCORDING to Geekbench, the Developers decided to use its database in order to determine whether there is a problem and when it appeared.

so, in the graphs below you can see the distribution of results in Geekbench 4 for iPhone 6s with different OS versions.

As you can see, in iOS 10.2 no problems were observed, as all results were within a short period. In iOS 10.2.1 there is the very feature that is well illustrated by the distribution of the results. Devices deviated from the norm, not so much, due to the relatively low average wear of the battery at the time of release of this version of the OS in January. In the case of iOS 11.2, the situation became even worse. But then the operating system itself is not to blame. Just lately, almost a year, the number of smartphones with significant battery wear increased.

the situation with the iPhone 7 is visible in the graphs below.

As you can see, only with the release of iOS 11.2 in a small number of copies began to show the same problem. This is because the iPhone 7 came out a year later iPhone 6s, so most of the devices have not managed to achieve the wear of the batteries, after which the OS starts to lower frequencies.

on the one hand, so Apple reduces the risk of problems with batteries. Other companies would do well to somehow notify the users about the activation of the corresponding mode. And it in some way, even in the interest of Apple, as users learn about the existence of a problem and buy new batteries. However, somebody may not like the strategy of Apple and the company will again have to defend themselves in court.
