It’s been confirmed that users won’t have to wait until the end of January to have their batteries replaced. Apple has now put the new battery replacement prices in effect.
Last week, news broke that Apple was slowing down iPhones that had an older battery. The Cupertino-based company made a public apology to its customers and announced that it would release an iOS update and reduce the battery replacement cost by the end of January. However, if you’re affected by this issue, you won’t have to wait until the end of January to have the battery replaced. Apple has updated its apology post on its website which now states that that the reduced price is now available.
Here’s what the company told the Verge in a recent statement.
The company told The Verge in a statement that “we expected to need more time to be ready, but we are happy to offer our customers the lower pricing right away.” Apple had previously announced that batteries would be available at a reduced price beginning at the end of January. The company also says that “Initial supplies of some replacement batteries may be limited,”
If your iPhone 6 or later has an aged batter, you will no longer have to pay $79, instead, Apple has reduced the price to $29. Apple will provide more detailed on it official website sometime soon.
