Apple offers replacement iPhone batteries effective immediately

In addition to its apology, Apple also said that it would be lowering the price of iPhone battery replacements from $79 to $29.

Apple said it took the step to ease demands on older batteries to prevent the phones from shutting down suddenly.

"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", the statement said.

If you are owning an iPhone and facing the problem of CPU slowing down then here we have bought an update to make you smile.

The service wasn't expected to start until late January, however in a statement to TechCrunch today the company said they are happy to offer their customers the lower pricing right away, explaining they over estimated and thought they would need "more time to be ready".

To overcome this issue Apple offered the discounted price for an out-of-warranty iPhone battery replacement from $79 to $29 for anyone with an iPhone 6 or later whose battery needs to be replaced, starting in late January through December 2018.

At least eight lawsuits have been filed in California, New York and IL alleging that the company defrauded users by slowing devices down without warning them.

Apple was under legal lawsuits for the slowing down of performances of its iPhone.

It was a Reddit post by a user named TeckFire that drove intense interest in Apple's battery strategy earlier this month, after the Redditor noticed that different versions of the iPhone 6 series were running at vastly different speeds - and that processor speeds picked up again if the battery was replaced.

"We know that some of you feel Apple has let you down".

The company also offered an apology to affected iPhone users, a week after admitting it issued a software feature a year ago that makes older phones operate more slowly to offset problems with its aging lithium ion battery.

On Dec. 20, Apple acknowledged that iPhone software has the effect of slowing down some phones with battery problems.
