More Details Needed Regarding Battery Health and Performance

I've been in support of Apple's position during this debate. They are in the right to manage peak power usage to reduce unexpected battery behavior. 인터넷카지노

That being said I've recently experienced this on my phone and the details don't line up with what has been reported or explained by Apple.

We've been told that the CPU will be throttled only when battery charge or temperature create a situation where it can't output enough to power the CPU during peak usage. I was under the impression that at higher charge levels there shouldn't be any slow down.

This is not the case. I've been tracking my CPU in Geekbench since this story broke and I've gone from 2400 at all charge levels to a high and low of 1400/1700 depending on charge level. 인터넷바카라

I've used both coconutBattery on the Mac and Battery Life on iOS and they found my battery health to be at 88% and 92%, with a cycle count of 553. I haven't really noticed a drop in battery life either.

In fact I only learned of this after comparing my wife's phone to mine because she thought hers was slow. We are both using and SE bought on the same day.

So now I'm stuck. I want Apple to manage my device performance when it suffers but not when it doesn't. I don't mind the CPU running slower in situations where the battery can't actually cope but not at 100% or near enough charge level. 카지노사이트

On top of that I don't think Apple will replace a battery above 80%. So now I've got a slower phone (100% of the time) that didn't have a noticeable problem before and nothing I can do to change that.

Importantly, I haven't felt a real world effect of the slowdown. Everything seems to run normally. For now I'm going to leave it be and only make a complaint if I notice a real world impact of the slowdown.

But I hope that there is change on the software side here, because I think they haven't struck the right balance.
