reminder: everybody knows that apple intentionally slows down their old phones to coincide with the release of the newer ones. they even admitted it: https://www.theverge.com/2017/12/28/16827248/apple-iphone-battery-replacement-price-slow-down-apology
nothing happened, they didn't stop doing it, but they *did* offer a $29 battery replacement for affected phones c:
what a controversial take, i know
@lynnesbian Reminder: Beats headphones are really Apple headphones with a different logo now
@lynnesbian we're living in 2019 and these people are living in 2439 and trying to curry favour with the Ferengi
@lynnesbian wait, is it confirmed that newer versions of ios slow down older iphones on Purpose, or do newer versions of ios just do more and therefore need better hardware to work?
the former would not be surprising but that article doesn't make it clear
@00dani it's the former. apple admitted themselves that they intentionally slow down their devices to coincide with the new ones
@lynnesbian i said it wouldn't surprise me but. what the wtf the fuck
@00dani they justified it with some bs about older phones' batteries going crappy so to extend battery life they underclock the phones.
if that was a real concern they could have just popped up a notice saying "your battery is dying, you can improve battery life by replacing it, have a nice day" but this is apple we're talking about
i mean honestly if it was an opt-in toggle switch i would personally use it but just forcing it on users is literally BS
That meaningless bar chart is a thing Amazon does too. Not in keynotes. In meetings with publishing houses whose books they sell.
They say to publishers, "This is how well your books are selling," and show them a bar graph with no numbers. Nothing. No information. The publishing house just has to trust that whatever ridiculous amount they pay to Amazon is worth it.
