Apple CEO: iPhone owners will be able to disable 'power management'

  Apple CEO: iPhone owners will be able to disable 'power management' About a month ago, Apple explained that slower performance of older iPhones is intentional, implemented as a "power management" plan through an iOS update. While it was ostensibly intended to prevent phones from crashing in situations when their worn-out battery couldn't supply enough juice to support demanding functions, owners are upset they weren't notified it was happening. In fact, it was only discovered through benchmarks.

Chances are, if you're an adult, you've since moved on to a more recent phone. The ostensible target audience for Pokemon GO however, is children, most of whom don't exactly have a smartphone upgrade plan they're paying for on the monthly.

On the plus side, enterprising youngsters could always use this to their advantage and convince gullible parents to trade in that outdated phone for a more recent model. After all, the game still works on the older iPhone 5s and iPhone 6 smartphones. Gotta catch 'em all, right?
