Second-hand market for iPhones will have taken a hammering due to the latest revelations!
They have always been slowed down to make the sheep buy the newer version each year.

Even if it’s new is not worth it, they are too slow now 😡
Should be clearer in the title that's it's pre-owned

£239 at GiffGaff for a good condition. I have purchased 2 already, one for Son and One for my wife.
The condition was stated as good but had no marks on either of the phones I purchased. If someone said it was a brand new one i would have beleived them.

£90 is alot of money. Here is the link: Giff Gaff Market Place
Blimey, still over priced for a used phone.

The “revelation” that Apple are maximising battery life as they grow older and that full speed is restored by a new battery??? Rather a sensible thing to do

Not exactly, as long as not upgraded to iOS 11, with iOS 10.something it works as smooth as day 1.
I have a 6s with iOS 11 and it’s works fine, no slowdown at all unlike when my old iPhone 4 moved to the new OS
This money for a second hand phone of this age is ridiculous regardless of speed!

Don't be a gullible sheep, Apple have been caught out, the "we errr......... knacker your device so that it lasts longer, we do it for you" line is utter BS!! If the batteries were changeable I'd maybe buy it, if other manufacturers did it, I'd maybe buy it, but my Sony Z3 is still as fast as the day I bought it and its had loads of updates!!

I applaud Apple for being so cunning as to blatantly rip off their sheeple, but come on WAKE UP AND SMELL THE COFFEE!!!!
A 16GB phone for use at the end of 2017/start of 2018? You won't have much storage for apps. Still too expensive for what it is.

Oh a rabid Android fanatic! The batteries ARE changeable.....it’s a competent DIY job or not very expensive.

Simply buy a battery case. And the ultra short battery life of the new ones makes the case for a powered case overwhelming.

No worries. The leaking news is that 2018 heralds iPhones arriving with bigger batteries.

So you just open a flap and take the battery out do you? I'm not an Apple hater, I have 2 iPhones and 4 iPads in the household, I just hate that Apple INTENTIONALLY slow down the devices to get you to buy a new one!!! Is it good business? of course it it, you don't get to be one of the richest companies in the world y playing by the rules, but I still think its ridiculous when people like you get your pants pulled down by them and STILL think they do it for your benefit!

I have changed an iPhone battttery. Not very hard to do every couple of years! Even Apple only charge £59 I think.

The tests have also showed that putting a new battery in speeds the iPhonre up again - so hardly a very effective sales tactic is it?

It’s a recent change to IOS and I agree that Apple SHOULD have added a “Battery condition monitor”. With all the current hot air I would expect that will arrive VERY soon.

Well, it is to stop the phones from shutting themselves down and it may well be a good thing to do, but the ongoing denials have just fuelled the fire for the conspiracy theorists. I strongly believe this will have an impact on the second hand market, at least in the short term anyway.
One thing that would help considerably would be to make the batteries easier to replace and therefore cheaper to replace, but that will never happen.
I quite recall those early reviews that compared Samsung SOC iPhones to the TSMC SOC version.
Well, it looks like the widely varying battery life from the reviews was now not the fault of the SOC !

The batteries on these phones strongly depend on how they have been used.
But these might be 7 day returns, so good as new!

It's not!!! They've denied this before, now they've been caught out! I have two older pads, one is a 2 the other is a 3. The 2 has not been updated as it's been in a cupboard for ages, the 3 has been and it's slow and sluggish, yet they both work and charge just fine. Coincidence?

Apple play dirty, as I said, I can see why, the devices are well made and don't seem to fail, they need to build in a way the maintain revenue streams. This is like the guy on Watchdog who was installing alarm systems with a program to make them fail after 13mth, a press of a switch and £100 later, and it lasts another 13mths!! Only difference is that he didn't have a public relations team who can spin a yarn to the Apple fans who now think Apple is great as it rips is off to HELP us!!

The fact you seem to not understand when someone is yanking your chain and your increasing anger at a giant corporation tells me you are lacking something in life.
Let people live and buy what they like, regardless of how dumb it may seem and you do you. It will make you happier in the long run.

When someone keeps posting dumb comments, I can only judge you on what you write. You're not "yanking my chain" you're just making yourself look stupid, but by all means carry on

I'm not angry at Apple, I actually think their business model is amazing, and I don't get angry at the people spending their money on Apple products (psssttt... I have 4 iPads!!). I was merely pointing out that people who still think that the Apple story is true are deluded.

As for me lacking something in life, what exactly does that say for you when you openly admit to being a troll?

It’s exactly the same thing. A problem occurs and performance is purposefully reduced by the management system.
I believe they were forced into it by threats from China. It was either that or a massive recall of phones.

It is a grey area, and knowing Apple, teflon grey.

Its totally not the same! For a start, that system is freely quoted in in the manual and its ONLY there to prevent the engine being damaged. As I said before, I have an old iPad2 that works perfectly well, certainly better than its iPad 3 counterpart.. the device that worked BEFORE it was updated!! The iPad 2 has never burst into flames or shut down to prevent the end of the world, it simply works because I haven't let Apple slow it down.... but I suppose to you, that's all coincidence???

This is exactly my point, Apple have always denied that OS updates were slowing devices, even though we all KNEW they were. They have been caught out and they have concocted this BS story to spin the negativity. But regardless, Apple fans will still rush to the store to buy the latest gear as long as it stays fashionable and that's testament to the way that Apple have marketed their products.
