  • Some people actually believe the "slow down" and "battery sucks" features are real, that's what makes this comic funny
  • Ah, thanks for explaining that. I totally wouldn't have picked that up from the comic. /s
  • iMore trolls are back in action I see… *sigh*
  • Love these comics.
  • Another conspiracy theory arises. Wonder if the battery slowing down code is true though Sent from the iMore App
  • I highly doubt it. My friend's iPhone 5 still runs great on iOS 10, despite that probably being the last update it will get. Sometimes major OS updates can slow down the device, but that's just because it hasn't properly been optimized for older devices yet, and if it's unoptimized it will take a hit on battery life and speed, but that eventually gets fixed in minor updates though
