Does Apple Deliberately Slow Down Old Models Before New Releases?
A study suggests that there may be something to those suspicions you’ve been having. The U.S study looked at worldwide searches for ‘iPhone slow’ and revealed an evident trend. The search term significantly spiked around the time of the release of a new version of the smart phone. The study then compared the results for ‘ Samsung Galaxy slow’ and discovered the term was unaffected by any new product launches from Samsung.
