You know, this behavior would be 100% OK if they just popped a message saying "your battery is in poo poo condition, we're throttling things down until you replace it, you can override in Settings > Battery", but they probably laughed the product manager who suggested this out of the room.

Yeah, this. Make it on by default, the vast majority of users will never touch the setting, but those who are aware and don't want it can disable it. I'm betting on this being rushed with a new update because this is a PR shitstorm.

You can also do it yourself with kits like from ifixit.com for cheaper. It's a little tricky, but with patience you can do it in about 30 minutes.

They could pop up a notification telling you the battery is not healthy at least.

I was wondering why my 6+ suddenly ran so much better after getting it replaced for the faulty touchscreen.

all those handicap parking spots steve jobs parked in were retroactively justified after he tried to treat his pancreatic cancer with fructose smoothies but at the end of the day you still have to question the wisdom of licensing a retarded person

Oh, there's plenty that will. Look deep inside, you know this to be true.

What's interesting though is my gf is poo poo at not breaking phones and always gets these old ones from her mom. They always run loving syrupy slow and I wondered if they were always that lovely or if something happened to them? I guess the answer is that they were always lovely and something was done to them, lol
