Apple intends to curb the performance of the iPhone 11, 11 Pro, 11 Pro Max and iPhone XS, XS Max and XR. The Cupertino company will indeed integrate with iOS a intelligent performance management system to prevent battery degradation of its smartphones. If the iPhone 11 still enjoy a few months of respite, the iPhone XS released in 2018 will be restrained this week with the deployment of the update iOS 13.1.
Since 2017, Apple Automatically bridges the performance of older iPhones to protect their battery. Unsurprisingly, this revelation was scandalous. Apple Quickly enabled users to disable this option, which was previously enabled by default on aging models. For now, the brand's latest iPhone, iPhone 11 and iPhone XS, are not yet affected by the clamping. But it will not be long to change, announcement Apple on its official website.

Apple will curb the performance of iPhone 11 and XS to preserve their battery
From this week, Apple will curb the performance of iPhone XS, XS Max and XR with the update iOS 13.1 (expected this Tuesday, September 24, 2019). "The effects of performance management on these new models may be less noticeable due to their more advanced hardware and software design" explains Apple. Similarly, the more your battery is in good condition, the less the performance clampdown will be at work.
Sooner or later, Apple will also curb the performance of iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max. "The new embedded software and hardware system is automatic, permanent and works to provide the best possible performance because the aging of the battery occurs over time" Apple. "The power requirements of the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max are dynamically controlled, which reduces the impact of battery aging on performance," the company promises. Apple ensures to have developed a more efficient system than the one built into the previous iPhone.
"This feature is only activated after the first unexpected shutdown on a device with a battery that has the capacity to deliver instantaneous peak power," reassures the US firm. Your iPhone will not be restrained until the battery shows great weaknesses. You can check the status of it by going to the preferences of your iPhone. As a reminder, the iPhone X released in 2017 has been restrained since March 2018 and iOS 11.3 update.
