Apple has announced iPhone Out-Of-Warranty Battery Replacement Credit which gives back $50 to anyone who paid full price for a battery replacement on their iPhone 6 or later between January 1, 2017 and December 28, 2017.

To be eligible, you will need to have replaced your battery at an Apple authorized service location.

The credit will be provided as an electronic funds transfer or a credit on the credit card used to pay for the battery replacement service. Eligible customers will be contacted by Apple via email between May 23, 2018 and July 27, 2018 with instructions on how to obtain the credit. If you have not received an email from Apple by August 1, 2018, but believe you are eligible for a credit based on the terms above, please contact Apple by December 31, 2018. Note that proof of service at an Apple authorized service location may be required.

In December of 2017, 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 commonly occurred with earlier generation devices. Rival smartphone manufacturers have since announced that they do not throttle their devices casting doubt on Apple's claim that this is necessary due to the nature of lithium-ion batteries. With the release of the iOS 11.3 software update, Apple shows battery health, recommends if a battery needs to be serviced, and allow users to disable throttling. Unfortunately, turning off throttling will not solve the unexpected shutdown problem for users with an iPhone 6/6s.
