Apple To Replace iPhone Batteries Even If They Pass Genius Bar Test

Apple To Replace iPhone Batteries Even If They Pass Genius Bar Test

Vantage Financial Partners Ltd. Inc. bought a new stake in shares of Apple during the 2nd quarter valued at $400,000.

While these lawsuits bubbled away, Apple released a further statement on its deliberate slowdowns of older iPhones, explaining how Lithium-ion batteries ages and why processor throttling is needed to prevent unexpected shutdowns, noting that when an iPhone battery is replaced performance hops back to normal.

The iPhone X continues to be a hot topic for debate among analysts, who can't seem to agree on just what Apple will do, although they all seem to agree that the iPhone X isn't the hot commodity it was expected to be.

And to its credit, Apple is also going to offer an iOS update that provides iPhone users with new features allowing them to better ogle the health of their batteries if that sort of thing floats their boat. The letter was posted in the wake of controversy over its throttling of older iPhones due to battery-related issues. When CNET's Oliver Padilla went to ask for a battery replacement yesterday, they promised him one - even though his phone passed the battery capacity test with a "green" result.

When Apple announced it would replace those batteries for just $29 each, some were still anxious that their phones might not qualify for the fix. You do need to have an iPhone 6 or newer, though. But that doesn't give you a lot of information - and certainly doesn't suggest that your phone may be sluggish because of the battery.

If you're exhausted of your iPhone battery not performing and you're running an iPhone6 or later, you're in luck.

A few details about the battery swaps were left rather vague, however.

iPhone owners of an iPhone 6 or later model can get a $29 battery replacement (normally $79) between late January and December 2018. There's been a big push in the "right to repair" movement, with numerous lawsuits in progress from groups around the world that would like the right to fix a device that they own rather than being reliant on the company that produced the item. The fix they put in place for the battery issue was meant to extend product life.

On the website, either make an appointment at your local Apple Store's Genius Bar, or another authorized service provider.
