Apple Begins Offering $29 Battery Replacements Today

Posted by · 13096 views · Translate

Apple has begun offering $29 battery replacements as promised. The company issued the following statement to TechCrunch:

“We expected to need more time to be ready but we are happy to offer our customers the lower pricing right away. Initial supplies of some replacement batteries may be limited.”

Apple announced it would be dropping the price of battery replacements from $79 to $29 after it was discovered that iPhones were being secretly slowed down as their batteries aged. Apple touts the slowdown as a feature but it was put in place to avoid unexpected shutdowns on the iPhone 6s; something that doesn't appear to have occurred as commonly with earlier generation devices.

Make your genius bar appointment soon, as initial supplies will likely run out. The program is available to impacted users with an iPhone 6 or higher.

So either way that you look at it. Apple still makes money of each battery replacement and will force people to update to their current iOS. Apple see’s this as a win win situation. Making a bad situation into a good one on their behalf. JAILBREAKERS BEWARE!!!

Well, in order to get your battery replacement. Apple wants you to update to the latest iOS. How do I know this? Because I was at the Apple Store with my girlfriend’s iPhone 6 which is currently on the iOS 9.3.3. That 9.3.3 iOS works great. The iPhone is currently shutting off and on. Battery percentage is incorrect. So Apple’s tech employee demanded that she needs to update or they would not replace the battery. So why the fck should a person be forced to update when they paid for their iPhone. Another shady practice to insure people try not to JailBreak. Be the way, we had an appointment and was on time. Still we had to wait 45 minutes and then was told the battery had to be ordered. Also they would give her a call in about a week when it arrives. Apple has become a shitty ass company! Very disappointed!

They would have never TOLD ANYONE . THIS WILL also claim they need to update your software on the phone. Most likely will discourage JB on the phones . Jb is perfectly legal , yet apple blocks it is complete SCAM.
