September is always a month for fans eagerly awaited hi-tech enterprise, which by the IFA in Berlin and the now annual fall launch of the new iPhone may attend a preview of the main news of the imminent arrival on the market. The countdown for the iPhone 6 is already started, so that the network rained the rumors and pictures of the body and the future of the iPhone display. Apparently the date of the event in which Tim Cook will unveil to the world the new smartphone should be September 9, with availability scheduled for next month.

In those days, it is very likely that all owners of iPhone 5S, iPhone 5, iPhone 4S(best iphone case) and other models prior notice problems with their devices fluidity. A constant phenomenon that happens every year at the launch of the new iPhone and thickens in the minds of fans of the Apple suspicion of an obscure intervention of Apple in making slower older models. The theory of planned obsolescence has made great recruits over the years, because there is no doubt that the devices already on the market slow down with expectations hitherto unknown to load an application or navigate by opening multiple windows simultaneously with the Safari browser.

It remains to be seen whether the trend is random or connected to Apple and, if so, what depends. To provide the answer has tried researcher at Harvard University Paola Trucco, who analyzed the phenomenon of "slow iPhone" topic at the top of Google searches in the days immediately following the launch of the latest iPhone. The study found that since 2008, every year there are peaks on the search engine Google, in testimony that the feeling is a collective malaise and seemingly incomprehensible.

Apple deliberately slowing down the old iPhone in the aftermath of the launch of the iPhone last? It is true that the old devices work worse, but through no fault of Cupertino. Or better not to direct the will. As highlighted by Sendhil Mullainathan, Professor of Economics at Harvard and inspiring study of the make-up, an intervention from Apple would be excluded as a willingness to slow the old iPhone to push the owners to purchase the newcomer could result in an estrangement from Apple or Android device in favor of other platforms, not to mention that in this way, Apple would violate several laws in force in the United States and international markets.

Of course that affects the difference with Samsung, in the special research monitored by Makeup forever through Google Trends reveals very minor peaks for each launch of the new Galaxy S(iphone 5c cases). Samsung is more loyal to Apple, which uses a few tricks to make the iPhone obsolete? To solve the puzzle you must move the focus, because the overriding factor is the operating system. When Apple announced its smartphone usually also arrives a new version of iOS, renewed or revised to take advantage of the greater power and speed of the last device; is optimized for the latter, therefore, the operating system does not behave in the same way with old iPhone, struggling lengthening the execution time to perform the required tasks. Furthermore, considering that unlike Android - a fragmented universe where in many cases the updates come rarely or do not come at all - when Apple releases a new version of iOS, users in bulk (about 90%) perform the 'upgrade, the feeling of having in hand a less snappy iPhone is pure reality.
