    Apple releases a update roughly 1 month before a new iPhone is released. Looking at Google trends the word "iPhone slow" is peaking at this time, and Apple calls it "to save components"?

    Apple did not admit they slowed down phones. Replace the weak battery and it goes right back up. Click bait Jack assess

    so, in 2 yrs my $1,400 iPhone X will conveniently start to slowdown glad I returned it. i only got it in the first place because my 6s has been so bad in the last yr. Now I know it was done on purpose to get me to buy the X. This utter crap.

    And slow down iPads and locked them from upgrading to the latest software even though their hardware can handle the new software.

    Ha! Apple fan boys been bragging for years about "getting the latest updates" when I been stating for years that after the 2nd year, you're only getting a new theme and a OS number change. For one, after so many years, you're not going to run the latest OS smoothly because that OS was not built for your phone. Each iPhone or smartphone in general is designed from the ground up to run whatever OS it launches with smoothly. You may get a bug fix and a small improvement here and there, but after 2 years, I wouldn't update anything. Android phones doesn't have this issue AS BAD because even on an older OS, android phones out the box will still do the task you bought it for just fine, it may only be slow compared to a newer device.

    Apple does this to get people to buy a newer phone. They're hiding behind the battery lie because they got caught.

    Even if Samsung puts an intel core i8 in their next phone the iPhone 5S will still be faster and have a better camera

    The people in the comments are morons. Change your battery after 2 years if you don't want your phone to slow down. Lithium Ion batteries only last 1-2 years depending on a number of circumstances, no matter who the manufacturer is.
