Well, apparently Apple apologized for allegedly sabotaging the phones they make. It’s almost funny since if anything their tactic lengthened the lives of old iPhones. I’ve had beverage containers with taps that stop dispensing before the container is actually empty and also containers that can actually be emptied via the tap, and I prefer the latter. Also I’ve had printers that will keep going regardless of how much ink/toner is left, just slowly fading out as well as infernal contraptions that just throw an out of ink error when there’s still plenty of ink but not enough to always make a perfect print.
I have plenty of complaints regarding the phones, but adjusting energy draw to accommodate aging batteries is a pretty cool move.
