Apple to fast track discount battery packs for slowed, older iPhones

21 Января 2018

And it's possible that Apple has sensed continued frustrations from its customers over the issue, as it has since edited its apology page to make the new battery-replacement pricing available now, rather than January of 2018.

Apple said that he cheaper replacements of the iPhone battery will be available worldwide through December 2018.

In a statement sent to TechCrunch, an Apple spokesperson said: "We expected to need more time to be ready, but we are happy to offer our customers the lower pricing right away". In response to the company's statement that it would never degrade performance to drive replacement purchases, one user on Apple's support forums yesterday wrote, "You mean like making it very hard for people of average technical skill almost impossible to replace the battery and not using a generic battery form factor?" It'd be great for Apple to give users a way to decide for themselves whether they want to slow down the iPhone, or not.

Last week, it was discovered that Apple was slowing down older iPhones on objective. "We apologise", Apple said in a statement.

Conspiracy theorists believe Apple is purposely slowing down older iPhones to force customers to upgrade.

Apple has recently been involved in a controversy where the company is accused of apparently slowing down older iPhone's performances in order to tempt users into buying new ones. More than a dozen lawsuits have been filed against the company already and there are sure to be more. After all, your battery replacement will be handled in-store by a certified Apple technician, and should result in you receiving a device that is wholly intact, complete with waterproofing (i.e. iPhone 6s and iPhone 7). Apple had said it was doing this to avoid shutdowns on older iPhones with decaying batteries, which were unable to handle the load of peak performance.

While Apple apologised, it never admitted a mistake. Apple is not the only one struggling to keep the lithium-ion cells running properly, with Samsung's Galaxy Note 8 also appearing to suffer from battery related problems.

Apple's battery replacement program has gone live in the U.S. and across the world, including India.

The company earlier blamed for issuing software updates to reduce the performance quality of older models and forcing users into purchasing the updated model.
