Wait, let's back track, isn't the whole reason why you buy an iPhone to have a throttled experience? Because android is to fast for you?
That jab would have been better, if you had spelt "to" correctly. Also.. nice try in baiting. ;)

Who cares, even the new Mate 20 Pro will throttle itself if the device gets hot...

Does this feature even work ?

My 4+ year old iPhone 6 still shows 100% Maximum Capacity for the battery health. Yes, I do use it constantly.

Original battery and does still seem to hold its charge for most of the day, dependant on usage of course.

So you don't mind paying R20 000 for a phone that you cannot even use to its full potential? Wow, I guess Apple fans are something else.
apples fans will buy anything with an apple logo on it,
doesn't matter if its good or bad, apples fans are loyal to their half eaten fruit

This is not a Apple thing, Samsung does it, Huawei does it, everyone does it....

(And I will be getting the Mate 20 Pro, also has throttling when it gets hot)

I don't mind at all. If it saves the phone why not.
What's the point in spending so much money on a device, thinking you are buying the latest and best if it's not? You're throwing money down the drain. That's like buying a Ferrari to drive around the suburbs.

I paid R2000 for my Redmi 6A, it won't throttle itself. It's slow enough out of the box.
Then again, it never pretended to be what it's not. Apple is supposed to be a premium brand, thats' why you pay such ridiculous amounts only to get throttled lol.
