Apple: the new iPhone 8/Plus and X need less power management, as they come with 'hardware updates'
Apple's iPhone throttling saga continued on Tuesday with a response letter to questions from the Senate committee investigation, from where we learned that it may offer rebates to those who paid full price for swapping their batteries before the $29 consolation price kicked in. Tucked into those questions were a few from Senator John Thune, who demanded to know whether Apple will be engaged in throttling its newer handsets like the iPhone X or 8, too. Well, the head of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation now has his answers:


Apple's initial statement on the matter that said "we’ve extended that feature to iPhone 7 with iOS 11.2, and plan to add support for other products in the future" still seemingly holds true for the new iPhones as well, though it may not be to the aggressive levels of their predecessors. Oh, well.
