Really? iPhones released in September, next OS announced in June, and it already has the slowdown code in place for the then-new device. The fact that they dropped the battery replacement program to $29 speaks volumes, it's their way of 'settling' AFTER they got caught. --- Post Merged, Dec 29, 2017 --- Thank you! Fully agree.

How dare I question the almighty Apple?
