When everything seemed to have been forgotten, Apple returns to the practice that generated much controversy at the end of last year, when he admitted that it reduced the performance of their iPhones to compensate for the loss of efficiency of the battery , product of use and load cycles. It all started with the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s with the release of iOS 10.2.1 , to then extend the measurement to the iPhone 7 after the release of iOS 11.2 .
