Coming from a new report GizChina, Changing your iPhone region to France can make an older iPhone faster than before. Over the past few years, there has been a lot of controversy over Apple’s decision to slow down older iPhones by tearing them down and losing battery life.
In fact, Apple has been fined by several states in the United States for slowing down older iPhones in addition to monitoring French competition. This controversial issue has led to a 113 million settlement.
A recent report says that changing the iPhone region to France makes an older iPhone much faster than before. This is because Apple does not throttle French iPhones with investigations and fines by the country’s competition observers.
The Cupertino-based tech giant previously said it slows down older iPhones to save their battery life, compromising performance. The idea behind the decision to tear down older iPhones is to force consumers to buy a new model and gain access to better performance and improved features.
