Apple’s $ 29 iPhone’s battery replacement program is starting soon
The Apple Company surprised its customers during the past weekend by making an announcement that it is discounting iPhone’s battery replacement program. The firm has launched this program ahead of its schedule. It is quite difficult to applaud Apple for kicking off this battery replacement program so soon. Well, this has been done due to the fact that the company has been secretly throttling all its old iPhone’s models for the years.
So now the company has throttled performance on its old iPhones in an effort to extend the battery life as the battery of its phones has started to age.
It was discovered last year itself that the company would have been secretly slowing down the old iPhone models. So, all the people who actually claimed that the Apple Company made an attempt to intentionally slow down the old iPhones in an effort to force their upgrades were actually true. This is something which is half correct. So now the company has throttled performance on its old iPhones in an effort to extend the battery life as the battery of the phones started to age. This is what the company had claimed when the firm fessed up the iPhone’s slowdown in December last year. Many of the iPhone owners have realised that the old battery of their phone is a weak one and now it has been gradually losing its capacity. It was discovered that the old battery of the phone would be responsible for killing its performance. But there is now a simple fix to this issue.
Apple also warned the consumers that there might be initial shortages of the batteries for some of the models in the beginning
You can buy a new battery and the company would be charging just $ 29 for this swap and immediately users can get the battery replacements from the company at the cost of just $ 29.This is for the iPhone 6 and later a similar type of the discount is available outside the US like the replacement cost is $ 25 in the UK and it is $ 39 in Australia. The company‘s spokesperson communicated that it will be providing more details on its website soon. As of now, the Apple has explained its move by saying that it would be expected to need some more time to get ready.

The iOS update this year will be offering the transparency of the battery health but it might not be able to satisfy the users who are wondering whether the slowdown is needed in the first place or not. Although this battery degradation is not something which is unique to the Apple only other companies claimed that won’t be slowing down their devices.
