A few days ago, the Apple promised to offer batteries at a discounted price of $29 for the impacted users of iPhone 6 and later. When the discount was initially announced, the company was looking for a rollout time around the late-January in the United States.
The company said in a statement to TechCrunch, “We expected to need more time to be ready. But, we are happy to offer our customers the lower pricing right away. Initial supplies of some replacement batteries may be limited.”
Apple received a huge blowback from the public when it Apple admitted that it had slowed down older iPhone models to enhance the performance. The current $50 discount can be seen as an apology by the company. We can expect several users to take advantage of this situation to increase the life of their old iPhone smartphones.
The opponents of Apple in the market such as Motorola, LG, HTC and Samsung have never taken such a move and they must have observed this current decision to provide the battery at a discounted price very closely. This is another reason to love the Apple. It values its customers so much. You should first read how to fix your iPhone if you think Apple has slowed down your phone as well, before buying new battery.
If you had earlier applied for a replacement of the battery, this $50 discount will not apply to your phone. This is something that you must note very seriously. Regarding the details on replacement program, Apple has more details on is site and you might want to read the same there.
