6 by the committee, was a response to a set of questions Thune sent on January 9, asking the company about its reimbursement plans and customer service following a revelation that it had deliberately slowed some older iPhone models' performance.

Hindsight being 20/20, Apple said it will now give owners full control of their phones, meaning they can use a new UI tool to turn off the power management feature that slows down older phones.

The previous iOS 11.3 Beta from Apple had some issues being faced after which iOS 11.3 Beta 2 is out to bring out new features that will help in knowing iPhone's battery health.

This update will also have the most anticipated feature - the throttling of the battery.

But there's a way you can tell if your iPhone is being throttled.

Apple is presently embroiled in a messy controversy involving older iPhone models that slow down in terms of performance after they reach a certain period of usage. Therefore if you are interested then you can certainly check this Beta version.

In December, Apple announced it will make all battery replacements $29 -$50 less than the original out-of-warranty cost - until the end of this year. Ultimately, the iPhone 7 series was just added to the iPhone slowdown "program", which originally covered only the iPhone 6/6 Plus and iPhone 6s/6s Plus.

Earlier this week, Apple developers received the iOS 11.3 beta 2 software which included the battery health featuers. Before you go any further, you might want to take a look at my list of precautions and caveats related to running beta software on your iPhone.

The new feature is named Battery Life and it will appear in the Battery section of the Settings app. Normally, this page should show you if the battery is operating at peak capacity and you will see which is the maximum capacity. This feature is enabled only after an unexpected shutdown first occurs on a device with a battery that has diminished ability to deliver maximum instantaneous power. However, if your iPhone does randomly shut down due to battery health and performance issues, this feature will automatically enable itself once again to prevent future shutdowns.
