Here's how you can take advantage of Apple's Battery Replacement Program

Apple Might Combine iPad iPhone And Mac Apps For A Combined Consumer Experience

For Malaysian iPhone users affected by this, Apple has confirmed that the discounted battery replacement prices will also apply in Malaysia. This price reduction for the battery replacement is valid for the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus models.

Speaking with Axios, Apple explained, "We expected to need more time to be ready, but we are happy to offer our customers the lower pricing right away".

The company agreed to cut $50 from the cost of replacing an out-of-warranty iPhone battery, to $29, for iPhone 6 and newer models. We recently extended the same support for iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus in iOS 11.2.

As we have already told you that Apple has faced lawsuit on intentionally slowing down the batteries of older phones. In case you don't have any authorized store near your location, you can send your iPhone directly to Apple but it will take time.

"I think more people will update their battery than buy a new phone, globally", he said. That said, as a long-time iPhone user, I still have issues with Apple's apology, especially given that Apple plans to keep throttling iPhones for the foreseeable future. Apple said it introduced a new power management feature with the release of iOS 10.2.1 that limited old iPhones from hitting peak performance that could lead to unexpected shutdown. At least four similar lawsuits were filed in the United States against the company as well. Apple warns that repairs could take up to 5 business days. Apple will offer more points of interest on the substitution program on its site.

Even though Apple meant to keep older iPhones operational for a longer period, its admission still fueled conspiracy theory that it intentionally slowed down old iPhones to compel owners to purchase its new iPhone models. Apple also promises a software update in early 2018 that will target the battery and its condition. By not recognizing the battery-related performance problems earlier, Apple also basically acknowledged that it doesn't test new releases of iOS on iPhones with older batteries.
