Cook noted, however, that such a move would put users at risk for unexpected shutdowns as their battery ages.
When and how did Apple first become aware of the need to develop an iOS software update to address instantaneous phone shutdowns attributable to battery degradation?
In that update, the company tweaked the iPhones 6, 6s and SE to instead slow down the processor when the voltage dropped.
"We've been hearing feedback from our customers about the way we handle performance for iPhones with older batteries and how we have communicated that process", Apple "We know that some of you feel Apple has let you down". Cook refused to "take a position" on how the new tax plan will affect individual Americans but commented on the corporate tax saying, "I do believe the corporate side will result in job creation and a faster growing economy".
"We deeply apologize for anybody that thinks we had some other kind of motivation", Cook told ABC. The advocacy group, Citizens United for Consumer Sovereignty, is accusing Apple of destruction of property and fraud.

The group also represents about 120 plaintiffs in a civil damage suit against Apple filed earlier this month. These performance handicaps gave rise to conspiracy theories that Apple was deliberately throttling older models to encourage adoption of its newer releases.
Both companies are suspected of infringing four articles of the country's consumers' code and will face multimillion-euro fines if found guilty. The company is already facing around 50 class action lawsuits and multiple investigations related to the slowdown of iPhone devices with degraded batteries.
Late previous year Apple admitted the existence of an iOS power management feature after a Geekbench test found a connection between iPhone performance and battery age while investigating a post from a Reddit user, who had found that an iPhone became faster after replacing the battery. "We have a deep sense of responsibility to give back to our country and the people who help make our success possible", Cook said in a press release.
Italy's antitrust body said on Thursday it had opened a probe into allegations that Apple and Samsung Electronics Co Ltd used software updates to slow their mobile phones and push clients into buying new handsets. "This hasn't been done before".
