Apple users are not happy with the company’s untrustable behavior and its product's performance. After Apple admitted that it has throttled down the older iPhones performance in last 1 year for degraded batteries, things are getting a little bit grim for the company.

When the iPhone users started experiencing a sudden drop in the phone's performance after updating with latest iOS, they started complaining about it. Moreover, some of the developers have posted the performance test of iPhone on their blogs. A month back, finally Apple accepted that it intentionally slowed down the iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 6S, 6S Plus, and SE with an iOS update. Apple also said that "With the update, iOS dynamically manages the maximum performance of some system components when needed to prevent a shutdown”.

However, Apple fixed the Meltdown with a patch in 10.13.2 macOS update released on December 6 and will be delivering mitigation for Spectre with 10.13.3 macOS update.
