Apple starts $29 out-of-warranty battery replacements immediately

Apple starts $29 out-of-warranty battery replacements immediatelyā€¯

Apple has announced that its discounted iPhone battery replacement program will go into effect immediately.

"This fix will also cause users to think, "my phone is slow so I should replace it" not, "my phone is slow so I should replace its battery". In case you are wondering how many full-screen models have been launched this year, we don't know either but a new research data from China has given us an idea of the now of bezel-less display panels that have been shipped this year alone.

The allegations were in a lawsuit filed last week in Chicago federal court on behalf of five iPhone owners from Illinois, Ohio, Indiana and North Carolina, all of whom say they never would have bought new iPhones had Apple told them that simply replacing the batteries would have sped up their old ones.

Apple also said that they were expecting to need some time to get ready for this battery replacement process but they are happy to offer this reduced priced replacement right away. Since all components require certain voltages and currents to operate, in a bid to avoid unexpected shutdowns, iOS reduces the SoC frequency and therefore reduces the performance of the smartphone until the power management IC finds it reasonable. To do so, owners of the said iPhones will have to either send their smartphones to Apple, bring them to the company's stores, or bring them to an Apple authorized service provider.

If iPhones in fact cease to operate properly as a battery naturally degenerates, then Apple could have advised customers that a new battery would resolve the technical issue.

These discounted battery replacements are available to iPhone 6 and later models whose battery needs to be replaced.

It's been a damaging week for Apple in the eyes of its customers.

Apple was recently compelled to release a longer statement to try to explain and apologize to consumers for the performance issues experienced on iPhone units with aging batteries.
