iPhones get costlier by up to Rs 3700 after Customs duty hike on smartphones
However, the distribution of iPhone 6S scores for iOS 10.2.1 appears multimodal, with one large peak around the average and several smaller peaks around lower scores.
Poole is referring to the update Apple rolled out in iOS version 10.2 created to address an iPhone 6s battery issue that was causing the handsets to shut down for no apparent reason.
Currently, most modern iPhones either run in full performance, or in limited performance once they enter low-power mode (which the user is notified of first), Poole wrote. The user talked about the "iPhone 6s battery fiasco" wherein the smartphone switched off even with 40% remaining battery.
The import tax hike on imported iPhones from 10% to 15% hits Apple much harder than it has competitors like Samsung. However, a similar issue started surfacing with iOS 11.2.0. The other issue, according to Poole is iOS and he writes, "the difference between 10.2.0 and 10.2.1 is too abrupt to be just a function of battery condition".
The increase in prices is applicable on all iPhone models except the iPhone SE as the Apple assembles the device in a Bengaluru-based facility with its Taiwanese manufacturing Wistron Corporation. The update was in response to reports of older iPhones shutting down randomly with 30% battery life left, and reducing the iPhone's processor speed could have helped address the issue.
As Poole points out, the sluggishness might prompt some to upgrade to a new iPhone instead of simply replacing the battery.
John Poole, founder of Primate Labs, the company behind the Geekbench processor benchmarking software, says in a blog post that iPhone 6 and iPhone 7 phones have a problem that is "widespread, and will only get worse as phones (and their batteries) continue to age".
Apple didn't immediately return a request for comment. "This will likely feed into the "planned obsolecense" narritive".
This was came into light when a Reddit user claimed that his iPhone 6s had been running slow and that the problem went away after a battery replacement.
However, the shorter the battery life and the more a user has to charge it, such as topping up during the day as well as charging over night, the faster the battery will age in relation to the smartphone.
