But Tim Cook doesn't recommend they do”

No further details were shared, but presumably both iOS and macOS devices will receive the update, as both can be affected by the text string in the Messages app.

Speaking with ABC News following the company's announcement that it would bring back billions of dollars in profit stored overseas, Apple CEO Tim Cook said a new iOS developer update will arrive next month that will allow iPhone users to see their battery's health.

With the update, Cook said, "We're going to give people the visibility of the health of their battery so it's very, very transparent - this hasn't been done before".

Things were much less comfortable for world number one Simona Halep against 17-year-old Australian wild card Destanee Aiava. On the men's side, Sam Querrey was ousted after losing, 6-4, 7-6 (6), 4-6, 6-2, to the 80th-ranked Marton Fucsovics.

Apple confirmed on December 20 that software in iPhone 6, iPhone 6s and iPhone SE models to deal with dangers from ageing batteries could slow down the phone's performance. "We will tell somebody 'We're slightly reducing your performance by some amount in order to not have an unexpected restart.' And if you don't want it, you can turn it off".

But he wouldn't recommend it, as the company slowed down the phones to prevent other problems, he said. The company is adamant that this is not a ploy to get people to buy newer models, but a tactic created to stop devices from unexpectedly restarting, due to the limitations brought on by battery age.

Late a year ago, Apple acknowledged it was using software updates to slow down batteries in an effort to prevent them from shutting off suddenly.

Cook was responding to questions about the recent finding that Apple slows down the performance of iPhones whose batteries have degraded to that level.

The issue struck a nerve on social media, where many voiced a theory that Apple intentionally slows down older phones to encourage customers to buy new ones.

As part of its attempt to minimize the backlash against its battery strategy, Apple has also cut the price of battery replacements from $79 to $29.

After beating the Raiders 48-21 in Super Bowl XXXVII, Gruden was just 22-26 in his final three years with Tampa Bay. I think he's got a huge upside. "But I'm very, very excited to have him as our quarterback".

Those with the update will have an option to chose whether they want their iPhone's performance to be throttled when its battery degrades to a certain point.
