The behavior was covered under umbrella language explaining the measures it took to stop iPhones from suddenly shutting down with the iOS 10.2.1 software update.
But it's not because of the software. In fact, there's a reasonable implication that Apple is claiming that new hardware means no throttling will be warranted in future software updates.
That's according to a Senate committee chairman. That committee has released a letter from Apple that answers some of its questions about the program.
There was a claim floating around for a short minute saying that Apple had told everyone it was throttling performance on older iPhones in February.
Performance throttling was meant to keep iPhone users pleased with their device for longer. But everything on the device was taking longer to load. Now, a mea culpa from Apple.
If you felt like a particular software update crippled the overall user experience on the iPhone 6s or 7, there's now an explanation for that.
If you still experience random iPhone 6 or 6s shutdowns, Apple's recently released iOS 10.2.1 may fix the problem or at least limit its impact.
