      Hm, usually I'm the first one to jump on the Apple hate bandwagon, but doesn't literally every company do this tho?

        They have to, batteries AGE. So unless you want your phone to constantly freeze and crash like it's a Windows computer, it has to be slowed down after 2-3 years.

        If Apple wanted to push people to buy new phones, they wouldn't be giving away the latest software updates to 2014 devices. Compare that to most android phones, which are basically obsolete the moment they hit the market. A joke.

          So instead of offering a good option to replace battery they fck with your device? And their updates are the reason for slowing down the devices, not battery degradation. The hardware just doesn't support and isn't optimised for what they're adding in newer versions of iOS (because a lot of stuff is dependent on newer more advance hardware) so they have to keep down certain things for the hardware to accommodate the added stuff. Which is a piss poor decision. It would be better if they did iOS updates personalized for each device (remove the stuff that's hard draining on the hardware and add stuff that won't impact device as much for them to "need" to slown down the whole thing).

          And Android devices are not obsolete after you buy them. They get regular security updates, which is a better option. At least you keep all the device speed but it gets more secure. Battery degradation is normal and unavoidable from technical standpoint, so the fact it doesn't last as long after a year is something to be expected. But that fact is very badly communicated to buyers which expect their battery to always last as long as when they first bought the device.

              Of course you can get your battery replaced. I usually do that after 2 years, keep it for another year, then sell it. Makes it feel like a brand new phone.

              If you don't want to get your battery replaced AND refuse to accept that your phone might get a little slower in certain situations, they've also added a new setting to keep it running at peak performance. This will likely lead to crashes (like on any non-iPhone) and even faster battery degradation though.

              Not true. In fact, the updates often improve performance, even older devices have gotten noticeably faster in the past. The most recent one (iOS13) was a bit of a mess and an exception, but that happened after this fabricated throttling 'scandal'.

              Literal five year-olds know that batteries degrade. It happened to every flashlight and every game boy I had as a kid. I refuse to believe that there are people who were genuinely outraged by this whole thing. Did they grow up before electricity became a thing? We can't expect technology companies to teach people basic science. Batteries degrade with time. Things break when you drop them and bend when you sit your fat ass on them. The only scandal here is how dumb people are. France better use those $25 Million to fund their schools better.

              • ^Most people are clueless about technology. You might be judging by the people around you, but cashiers, waiters, politicians, older people etc. - people who have no reason to follow or learn about technology because if has little impact on their daily lives are pretty clueless about it. My father literally killed his cellphone battery in 6 months because he was putting it on charger when it was at 80% despite my constant warnings.

                And I might be wrong about iOS as butI personally never had an iPhone, so it's all second hand knowledge from people around me, but my personal experience with macBooks is that after 2 years every OS update ****s up the basic performance little by little (not battery related stuff).

                            • Homophobia is a real issue and IMO should receive inmediate psychiatric treatment. It isn't a healthy mental state and the person suffering from it clearly has deep traumas, major insecurities and heavily repressed ideas.

                                          Of course he's winning. Basically all wins are set. There will hardly be any shocks. There hasn't been such a predictable Oscar race in quite some time.

                                            Then it's amazing. Can't wait to see that moment tonight, "Joker" was my favorite movie of 2019 and seeing Joaquin winning and giving the speech will close the circle.

                                            I'd wish "Joker" could win the Best Picture category but I know it's impossible, everything it's set for "1917" to win. Still I'm glad it was nominated, not that many DC / comic movies get the Best Picture nod.

                                                Only Parasite has enough chance to win over 1917. The same battle goes on in Directing. Joaquin, Renee, Pitt and Dern are winning actors. 1917 should sweep technicals (Cinematography, Editing, both sounds). Although I wish Parasite would take editing, but 1917 trick of looking one take might give it more than enough of an edge. Parasite takes original screenplay (Hollywood could edge it here, Tarantino isn't the one to discount and he wasn't eligible for Writer's Guild so the battle between those two hasn't been tested there) and Jojo looks to grab Adapted with ease.

                                                  Oh yeah "Parasite" is a great one too. I think "1917", "Parasite" and "Joker" are the 3 strongest films of the night.
