Apple Becomes More Clear On Battery Health
On Wednesday Britain’s competition watchdog said Apple Inc has committed to be “clearer and more upfront” with iPhone users about battery health and performance, after the regulator looked into consumer concerns on the matter.
The Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) shared that it raised consumer law concerns with the tech company last year after finding people were not being warned clearly that their phone’s performance could slow down following a 2017 software update designed to manage demands on the battery.
The iPhone maker previously came under scrutiny after it said in 2017 that software to deal with ageing batteries in iPhone 6, iPhone 6s and iPhone SE models could slow down performance.
Reuters reports Since the CMA raised its concerns, Apple had already started to be more upfront with iPhone users.
