Apple Reduces Cost Of New Batteries For Slowed-Down IPhones

Barclays' analyst Mark Moskowitz estimated that a huge chunk - 77 percent of iPhone users - are among those eligible to upgrade the batteries inside their smartphones.

"With reference to the Battery Replacement Program, Apple have informed us that any customer owning an iPhone 6 and/or later that is out of warranty and wishes to replace the battery (whether faulty or not) can do so by visiting our iCentre Service Centre in Joe Gasan Street, Pieta".

Apple lowered its battery replacement pricing as a way of saying sorry after having to admit it slowed down older iPhones without informing owners.

In a rare public apology, Apple yesterday said it was sorry for how it handled an operating system upgrade that slows the performance of older iPhones to prevent them from unexpectedly shutting down due to aging batteries.

Arguably the best way to see whether your iPhone's battery is still fine or not is to have it checked by an Apple Genius.

Furthermore, the average chip speeds of the iPhone 6 and newer models can be compared with the below list. Apple shaved $50 off its standard battery fee in an extraordinary - but limited-time - effort to get back in our good graces. The stock was up as much as 1.3 per cent earlier in the day.

Brady declined to touch on his new documentary series set to drop on Facebook in the coming months, "Tom vs". And after the game Saturday night, News 2 will also air a Titans Live Postgame Special immediately after.

And you can be certain that Apple's competitors won't let it forget about it.

It's a brand new year for Apple fans which means a whole new batch of iPhones is on their way.

Barclays Capital released an analyst note yesterday that predicts the cost will be 16 million iPhone sales in 2018. With three lively iPhone products on the market (the iPhone 7, 8, and X) and a popular iPod model, the company is poised to meet that goal.

Apple now has to hope that iPhone users don't decide to take a $29 battery over a $999 iPhone X.

The 6.46-inch OLED iPhone should have the largest battery capacity of the devices, but it'll also have a substantially larger display with even higher pixel density than the display on the 5.85-inch model will, Kuo says. In fact, Apple was found guilty of the deliberate tweaking after several users reported the improved performance on their old iPhone after changing the battery. When Apple makes repairing phones as easy buying new ones, it saves us money and its better for the environment.

In a statement to costumers, Apple internationally said that there has been a "misunderstanding" about the battery use and gave a lengthy explanation of how lithium-ion batteries age. Essentially such tests are for information purposes only and check the battery health and life.
