A rumor has been going around recently that Apple deliberately slows down older iPhones to make users want to buy the newest released one. There’s even mention of a Harvard study that “proves” this to be the case.
This, of course, has made a lot of people upset. No one wants to think they are being tricked into doing something they don’t want to do.
The good news is that this is FALSE.
There is no Harvard study that has proven Apple slows down old iPhones. The reports of this are simply falsified. People love to cause drama and this one definitely achieved that goal.
But…What If Your iPhone Really Is Slow?
So, why is it that you seem to feel like your old iPhone is slower when a new one is released?
It’s because you want the new one. It’s as simple as that. Humans are constantly yearning for the next big thing. They want something that new, shiny, and of course, faster than what they had before. “The grass is always greener…” So, it’s not that your older iPhone is slower than before when the newer iPhone came out. It’s more that you seem to look for faults in the one you have just so you have a reason to get the new one.
We rationalize really well when we really want something, right?
