Apple will not recommend to use this Disable CPU feature with the next iOS update as it will cause many unexpected issues on the phone’s overall performance. By enabling this feature, the users will not be able to use the device in emergency.
According to sources, the developer beta of the new iOS update will be released in the next month i.e. in the February month and the final stable update will release in the March month.

In order to fix the slowdown issue, Apple has clearly suggested to replace the battery of the device by paying $29 additionally in this year 2018. By changing the battery of the iPhone with the newer one, the phone will start working as the new phone without slowing down the actual performance.
