Here's how to get Apple's $29 battery replacement now

Apple sanctioned in Qualcomm court case for withholding documents

Apple previously announced that it would replace any degraded batteries in the iPhone6 and above for a lower price of $29.

Now, according to an internal Apple Store briefing memo reportedly seen by French site iGeneration, that criteria is being loosened too.

Apple is offering discounted battery replacements for iPhone 6 and later models, after admitting to slowing down older iPhone models due to battery life issues with new software. Some say that Apple does this on goal to get people to upgrade.

And he continued with the proposal as planned. "A pair of draft horses, a carriage, and I arranged it all for that night". Heather and David exchange vows on December 23. "She was able to fight til the end, I'm going to fight until my end".

Although the latest iPhone battery replacement program was originally scheduled to begin in late January, Apple subsequently updated its "message about iPhone batteries and performance" to make the program available immediately; it then instructed Stores to permit discounted replacements right away. In order to fail the test the battery needed to have less than 80% of its original capacity.

In mid-December, Apple was forced to confirm what many had suspected: it was deliberately hamstringing the performance of older iPhones running newer versions of iOS.

The debate assumes more importance as it was reported recently by Asia headquartered industry analysis firm Counterpoint that Apple earned United States dollars 151 on every iPhone sold in Q3 2017 which was five times its nearest competition Samsung which earned USD 31 per phone.

When a customer brings an iPhone into an Apple store citing slowness, an employee would typically run a diagnostic test on the phone.

Apple did respond to a request for comment on the battery replacement process Tuesday. Upon replacing the battery of their sluggish iPhone, it worked like new. The iPhone 7 hit in September 2016. The fix helped "avoid unexpected shutdowns" and protected the phones, Apple says, but also caused some phones to take longer to launch apps and do other functions. They now have a $200.00 price target on the iPhone maker's stock. Several lawsuits have been filed seeking class action status on behalf of all iPhone owners, and are likely to be consolidated into a single case if judges allow them to proceed. However, it raised suspicions the slow down was created to push customers into upgrading to a new iPhone.
