Here’s How The iPhone 6s Performance Measures Before And After Battery Replacement – Video
It was confirmed in December of last year that Apple slowed down older iPhone models for their own good. As batteries age, Apple throttled down the performance of the devices which are unable to handle the load. While users did not take the operation as Apple had hoped for, the company lowered the price of the battery replacements in an attempt to allow users to return to full power. Now, a new video has surfaced which shows the performance comparison of the iPhone 6s before and after battery replacement. Let's check it out.
iPhone 6s Shows Notable Difference In Performance Before And After Battery Replacement
Shared by Bennet Sorbo, the video details how great of a performance difference is present after the iPhone 6s battery has been replaced by Apple. As per Sorbo, his iPhone 6s was purchased two years ago and its performance was being throttled before the battery replacement. In the video shared below, you will see a single iPhone 6s model in two different time frames - before and after the device's battery was replaced.
Sorbo walks through his iPhone 6s, opening various apps and what does not come as a surprise is the performance. Before the battery replacement, his iPhone 6s was underperforming, app launch times are greater as well as the time it takes to ready the app for use. The throttling is most noticeable when handling graphics-intensive tasks or tasks that process a lot of information.
Before the battery replacement, the Geekbench score for the iPhone 6s was 2485 while after the battery was replaced, it jumped up to 4422. The numbers clearly state that the performance was almost doubled. Apple's iOS 11.3 currently rests in the beta phase which carries the ability to disable throttling at user's own risk. The consequences would result in unexpected shutdowns. In general, you would also have the ability to see the status of your battery as well.
There will be more to the story, so be sure to stay tuned in for more details. This is all for now, folks. What are your thoughts on Apple slowing down older iPhone models? Has your device slowed down? Share your views with us in the comments.
