The fact that a whole lot of the users of affected devices didn't even notice the slowdown, does it even matter then? What is more annoying: using a phone that shuts off unexpectedly or using a slower phone until you change your battery? And slow down all you fanboys, i've used both operating systems and Apple is still lacking efficient battery monitoring apps within their ecosystem.

The educational system clearly failed you. You talk like a drop out moron, using that type of language & clearly no grasp of grammar. Well moron, Apple batteries did the same thing years ago if you'd take your head out of your ass to check. Go get your GED & do the world a favor & don't mate.

samsung totally prefers to explode them instead! .. LOL .. Nonetheless, this is a big shame for Apple. Especially their ridiculous statements in the open letter:"First and foremost, we have never — and would never — do anything to intentionally shorten the life of any Apple product"... When you glue batteries into sealed devices (iPods, iPads, iPhones, MacBooks) then you do exactly that. And when you remove a headphone jack you extend that even to other products (or you put low quality adapter annoyances on your customers). I won't switch to android soul-harvesting, but I stopped buying iPhones. I hope I'm not alone and Apples sale figures will show that some day soon...

So you won't do Android & you've stopped buying Motorola then? And 'Soul sucking'?!? What the hell does that even mean? You're a moron as well.

they dont slow down because they dont last long enough, my friend had a shitty lg didn't even last a year bravo to all the other makers that do not take into consideration the age of the phone just drive it full throttle until it dies

You own an Samsung or LG phone so you speak out of your rich experience. Common man, you sound pathetic. Apple is literally draining it’s customers out of power and money but fun boys like you don’t give a damn. That’s why they’re getting lazy and don’t deliver us the best products and user experience anymore.

They do not because they don't think out of the box, now that apple has taught them how to improve the phones they will all implement that feature. Next iOs will give you control if you want to enable it or not. LG and Samsung simply explode when batteries go bad.

Even if their batteries explode. BOOM!
