While this process may be necessary in order to protect the battery, the fact remains that Apple was anything but transparent when it came to the issue of iPhone throttling - causing many people to go out and buy a new phone altogether when a simple battery replacement would have done the trick.

Microsoft attempted to recover some of the market with an education-focused event a year ago, and the launch of the Surface Laptop, but that still costs considerably more than most Chromebooks. A new iPad with Apple's high-end camera, which enables FaceID, Animoji, and ARKit features, may debut later this year.
