Apple has released an official apology after hearing feedback from customers about allegedly slowing down their older iPhones. In the letter which is on their website, Apple addressed the technical issue on why older iPhones (6 & Up) were ‘slowing down, mainly because of the battery. Heres what Apple is offering their customers for the mishap.

  • 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 apple.com.
  • 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.
  • As always, our team is working on ways to make the user experience even better, including improving how we manage performance and avoid unexpected shutdowns as batteries age.
