Apart from angry fans and consumers, the company was sued by multiple people in U.S. and France seeking justice.

Apple recently confirmed that it was purposely slowing down older iPhones due to battery degradation issues, with the maker confirming it had implemented an algorithm to reduce a handset's performance to protect its electronic components and, naturally, overall battery life.

Apple admitted to the accusation and is apologizing. It also assured that this was not done to make users upgrade to newer models, rather it said that "the goal has always been to create products that our customers love, and making iPhones last as long as possible is an important part of that".

Kuo's note, first reported Thursday night by, says Apple's most high-end 2018 iPhone will pack a 6.5-inch OLED screen and a 3,300mAh to 3,400mAh battery, far larger than Apple's biggest iPhone battery, the 2,716mAh in the iPhone X. Of course the catch here is that the replacement will happen only after a thorough inspection at the service centre. Instead of waiting around till the end of January, users can head out right now to get a brand new battery. Apple is additionally planning to release an iOS update in early 2018 which will give owners more insight into the health of their battery.

As we can see from the video there are no major differences in the benchmarks and Apple does not appear to be slowing down the iPhone 5S like it is with the iPhone 6 and other devices.
