Instead of $79, a replacement will cost $29 from late January right through to the end of December 2018. Details will be provided soon on apple.com.
Two law students in California have also filed a similar suit and are representing anyone who bought an iPhone 8 or older (which is a pretty large collection of iPhone users).
Here in the United Kingdom, as the out of warranty iPhone battery replacement cost is now at a 1:1 exchange rate (£79), we expect that figure to be reduced to £29 during 2018. Although Apple doesn’t fix out of warranty phones in India, it only replaces them at an additional cost – the replacement in case the phone is under warranty is free – the company does offer battery replacements for the older iPhones. “We recently extended the same support for iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus in iOS 11.2”.
A stock image shows a phone with low battery. Before today, Apple’s third-party service partners used to charge Rs 6000 or more depending on the iPhone model for the battery replacement. This is something the user tested using Geekbench, a benchmarking app.
The move comes after Apple said it had introduced a power management feature for iPhone 6, iPhone 6s and iPhone SE users previous year to ensure that the power from ageing batteries could match the devices’ processing power, preventing sudden shutdowns that usually occurred in such situations.
In related news, Apple published a statement on its website apologized for not informing owners of older iPhones that their devices were being intentionally slowed down. Although Apple’s explanation made a lot of sense, users were still miffed because at what they perceived as lack of transparency and lack of choice.

In part of its investigation, Shine alleged Apple’s behaviour “misled” consumers into believing their iPhones were malfunctioning and caused them to upgrade to newer, more expensive models. Although it also apologised.
Similar legal action has been taken against Apple overseas, including eight lawsuits in the United States.
In a statement posted to its U.S. site it apologised to customers who felt let down but maintained it hadn’t done anything to deliberately shorten battery life.
“We know that some of you feel Apple has let you down”.
Apple has promised that from next year, it will drop the price of an out-of-warranty iPhone battery replacement from $US79 ($101) to $US29 ($37) and update its software to allow users to track their phone battery’s health.
Apple Inc (AAPL) has posted an open letter of apology to its customers for its handling of a battery issue affecting older iPhones.
