May 22 (Reuters) - Britain's competition watchdog said on Wednesday that Apple Inc AAPL.O has committed to be "clearer and more upfront" with iPhone users about battery health and performance, after the regulator looked into consumer concerns on the matter.

The Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) said it raised consumer law concerns with the tech company last year after finding people were not being warned clearly that their phone's performance could slow down following a 2017 software update designed to manage demands on the battery.
