Here's how to turn off iPhone throttling with the iOS 11.3 beta

Apple is adding two Chinese suppliers this year for a stable supply of 3-D sensing modules for its Face ID, a sophisticated 3-D facial recognition system and the signature feature of the iPhone X, according to industry sources on February 8.

This has been an acute issue for Apple, with the iPhone maker facing analyst concerns about its current flagship device, the iPhone X.

Apple's statement comes from a question Senator Thune asked on whether customers should get a rebate if they didn't pay the reduced price for the battery. According to Apple this will prevent the phones from shutting down, but obviously, users were not happy with the news. While the ability to swap out an old battery for a new one is great for consumers, it may not be so great for Apple's bottom line.

Hogan also doubled down on Apple's stance that it would never slow down iPhones to pressure users to upgrade to a newer model, which is known as planned obsolescence. The financial press has been ripe with stories of disappointing sales of the iPhone X, pending production cuts, and slowing growth. Instead, the company reduced the price of an iPhone battery replacement to $29 from $79. The program is already popular, writes Barclays; if that trend continues, Apple could sell both fewer iPhones and see people buying cheaper models.

Compare the number that the app pulls up with what your iPhone's CPU speed should be (you can get this information by doing a quick search online - I find Wikipedia to be a good resource), and if the numbers match up, your iPhone isn't being throttled (as is the case with my old iPhone 6 Plus). However, the company notes that all batteries will still diminish over time and need replaced.

The company also said its newly announced operating system will let users turn off the software feature that slows performance and check a phone's battery's condition.

watchOS 4.3 Beta: Developers have a new version of the watchOS 4.3 beta to play with, reports 9to5Mac. The 2017 iPhones are not affected, but all the other models receive this feature (iPhone S3, iPhone 6, iPhones 6S, iPhones 6S Plus, iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus). The iPhone-maker introduced the power management feature on iOS to ensure that unexpected shutdowns did not take place because the battery was unable to handle performance peaks.
