Apple reduces battery replacement price for out-of-warranty iPhones to $29
Apple on Thursday announced a price reduction in its iPhone battery replacement plan for owners of the iPhone 6 and later. The company is slashing the cost from $79 to $29, starting in late January 2018, with the offer ending in December 2018.
The price reduction is part of Apple’s response to the company’s recent revelation that iOS throttles CPU performance in iPhones with diminished battery capacity. Apple posted “A Message to Our Customers” on Apple.com on Thursday, which explores the hardware issues, Apple’s attempts to address those issues with iOS, and the backlash the company has received.
