Androids don’t slow like iPhone, but maybe they should

Approximately one year ago, Apple made a bad decision in not properly announcing their iPhone slowdown measure with old devices with bad batteries. This week, Apple's bad-battery-iPhone-slowdown became public. Now several Android smartphone manufacturers are taking advantage of the negative feedback Apple's received as a result of said revelation. Motorola, HTC, Samsung, and LG have each announced that they do not slow down older smartphones. But they certainly could - and maybe they should?

iFixit matches iPhone’s battery discount in Right to Repair fight

Though Apple has created a fair amount of controversy by admitting that it does indeed slow down older phones to compensate for worn down batteries, there is one good thing to come out of this whole debacle.

That's in comparison to the normal price of $79 for a battery replacement, and this deal is going to last through December 2018.

“Steve Jobs” trademark now belongs to an Italian fashion startup

The late Steve Jobs will forever be associated with Apple (and the ill-fated NeXT), its products, and his contributions to modern computing. That, however, doesn’t mean that the eyes of the law will see things the same way.

7 signs of Apple’s iPhone power management in action

Apple found itself in hot water with slowing iPhones, and today's apology for how it communicated the iOS power management system is its attempt to patch things up with frustrated users. Battery chemistry may be inescapable - it's a fact of scientific life that lithium-ion batteries will age and get less effective - but iPhone owners weren't impressed at hearing some of the slowdown symptoms they've observed were intentionally added. So, just what does Apple's power management system look like in action?

Apple sued for slow iPhone planned-obsolescence in France

Faced with older iPhones that, due to battery aging, could unexpectedly crash when running system-intensive apps, Apple introduced a "smoothing" technique in earlier versions of iOS. Far from pleasing users, however, that decision has backfired considerably.

iMac Pro teardown video has good and bad upgrade news

Apple seems to have conceded that professional users buying a new iMac Pro might be more demanding about upgrades than their consumer counterparts. Since the iMac was saw its most dramatic unibody adoption in 2009, embedding all of the components behind the display, its potential for user-upgrades has decreased.

iPhone X “wait and see” doubts damaged sales say analysts

Less than a third of new iPhone buyers bought the iPhone X in the first month that the flagship iOS smartphone was released, analysts claim, with pricing and skepticism blamed for the cautious uptake.
