Apple has revealed that the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X models will not be significantly impacted by the iOS performance management feature, which the company implemented on older iPhones. 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.
On devices like the new iPhone X and which are operating at full battery capacity, there is no toggle to turn off the throttling feature that causes iPhones with degraded batteries to run more slowly.
But there's a way you can tell if your iPhone is being throttled.
While it remains to be seen how iPhone upgrade rates shake out for the quarter, Moskowtiz's argument is certainly well-reasoned.
If you want to sign up and test Apple's latest software update, keep in mind because it is a beta it's a little rough around the edges.
Did you pay full price for a replacement iPhone battery?
The new feature is named Battery Life and it will appear in the Battery section of the Settings app. Normally, this page should show you if the battery is operating at peak capacity and you will see which is the maximum capacity.
The two-week gap between the iOS 11.3 beta 1 and beta 2 gave Apple the chance to address the majority of the problems, and the iOS 11.3 beta 3 update and further releases should just be a series of minor bug fixes and tweaks.
Power management will be disabled on all devices when the iOS 11.3 beta is installed, but if an iPhone experiences an unexpected shutdown, power management will automatically be turned on.
An important thing to note here is that Apple also said that all iPhones contain basic performance management features necessary for safety and to protect the components inside the phone.
