Apple apologizes for slowing down your iPhone and offers to replace the battery for just $29

Yes, Apple did confirm that it was slowing down your iPhone for the sake of battery life but has promised to make amends so that it does not anger its loyal user base. Apart from significantly reducing the price of changing the battery, Apple is going to be introducing a software update that will allow us to monitor the battery health from time to time.

Apple apologizes for slowing down your iPhone and offers to replace the battery for just $29

“We’ve been hearing feedback from our customers about the way we handle performance for iPhones with older batteries and how we have communicated that process. We know that some of you feel Apple has let you down. We apologize. There’s been a lot of misunderstanding about this issue, so we would like to clarify and let you know about some changes we’re making.

First and foremost, we have never — and would never — do anything to intentionally shorten the life of any Apple product, or degrade the user experience to drive customer upgrades. Our goal has always been to create products that our customers love, and making iPhones last as long as possible is an important part of that.”

“Apple is reducing the price of an out-of-warranty iPhone battery replacement by $50 — from $79 to $29 — for anyone with an iPhone 6 or later whose battery needs to be replaced, starting in late January and available worldwide through December 2018. Details will be provided soon on

Early in 2018, we will issue an iOS software update with new features that give users more visibility into the health of their iPhone’s battery, so they can see for themselves if its condition is affecting performance.”

Does this also mean that the company will stop slowing down your iPhones? Probably not, but at least it is owning up to its mistakes.
