Apple’s next major update of its mobile software will include an option that will allow owners of older iPhones – to turn off a feature that slows the device – to prevent aging batteries from shutting down.
The free upgrade announced today will be released this spring.
The additional controls are meant to appease iPhone owners – who’ve been outraged – since Apple acknowledged last month that its recent software updates had been secretly slowing down older iPhones – when their batteries got weak.
