    I have iPhone 6S Plus that is running on iOS 9.3.5 and it is fast as my iPhone X.

    If they were honest, they would have added a "random-shutdown-protection-mode" switch in settings and told us about it. They should have left it to us to switch it on or off. If this is a real problem and not a ruse to sell new phones, they could have switched it ON by default for all the grandmas out there. At least I'd have the chance to get my performance back. My 6 Plus was working FINE before the upgrade. Because of this betrayal, I'm looking to jump ship immediately.

    I benchmarked mine, single core was 200 lower, but it is still plenty fast, around 3300.

    Somebody at Apple is going to jail over this. They are trying to trick people into buying a new phone.

    Apple's Software updates often slows down devices not just iPhones but IPads & Macs too.

    Only Apple can spin this planned obsolescence into something that benefits the customer. Have no doubt this was a carefully planned move by Apple to obsolete your stuff with a plausible cover story, if exposed. Strange how no other phone manufacturer needs to do this. It's courage people. Courage!

    Apple must be desperate to sell their new phones, since it needs to start forcing intentional slow down "featured updates", can't wait to see the lawsuits…we'll see how many consumers will trash their iphones for Samsung or Google phones

    This is just another example of corporate greed. Apple should offer a 2 year battery replacement program if they really cared about their old devices and their customers. Why force us to have non serviceable batteries in the first place? Also why release a >$1000 next generation phone. Ask yourself, would you rather have an iPhone X or a MacBook pro? I wonder if this software tweaking also affects their other devices. My IWatch 1st gen is slow as hell

    Android is getting slower naturally, and iPhone is getting slower by Apple's development. Which phone should I buy?

    Damm, i was wondering why my Iphone SE slowed down after software updates. This is not good apple, you will loose the trust of Iphone customers. I have also noticed that after software updates, when you goto settings and try to switch off Mobile data and Switch on Wifi it hangs for about 15 seconds. Surely this had happened after an software update. Apple is very smart to slow down old iphones so we are forced to upgrade.

    I knew my phone was getting slower, this is just terrible , big disappointment, I’m pro apple, but this just proves they are money hungry. Is it me but isn’t these iOS updates always show that it improves battery performance ?

    I have an iPhone 6 and apps hang it's so slow, especially with newer software updates. I always knew they did this stuff but when I asked an Apple Genius guy they look at me like I'm the conspiracy theorist. I knew I was right for years!!!

    Apple is slowly losing credibility with the masses in my opinion. With the planned obsolescence "software updates" slowing phones down & poor aesthetic designs as of late in addition to the lack of innovation, Apple has lost their mojo it once dominated the market place with.
