Does your iPhone malfunction, freeze frequently or seem slower now that Apple has released the iPhone 6s. It’s no longer a conspiracy, or well-thought out theory – there’s a scientific reason why your old iPhone zonks out every time a new iPhone is released. Find out the #1 reason why your slow iPhone malfunctions below.
As this chart from Statista shows, every time Apple comes out with a new iPhone, search queries for the term “iPhone slow” peak right around launch time, then decline slowly after that….until the next release.
There’s evidence that new versions of iOS slow older iPhones down, as new features take up more processing power. Don’t fret, it’s no conspiracy, but before you click “update” simply keep in mind you may regret downloading the latest software upgrade.
Unfortunately, there’s no quick fix to repairing slow iPhone other than upgrading to a newer one. Is it possible to create an iPhone that malfunctions a lot less with more use? I’m sure there is – but you don’t think Apple wants you to keep that old iPhone 3s forever do you? They’re in the business of iPhone sales and if Apple can convince you that the latest device will save your patience and is worth the price, well cashing out on the latest device is an option you’re going to have to live with.
