IFixit Drops Prices Of iPhone Battery Replacement Kits To $29
An Apple statement says it will drop the price of out-of-warranty battery replacements
03 January, 2018, 02:07
Last week, Apple apologized for its iPhone performance slowdown "misunderstanding" and offered select iPhone users a discounted price on battery replacements. The company has even published a check list that customers can run through to try and figure out why their iPhones may be sluggish, and if a battery is needed.
This welcome clarification comes just days after Applebegan offering battery replacements earlier than expected. At the time, Applesaid it was extending the discount to any customer "whose battery needs to be replaced". The process is similar on the app.
The company is already facing lawsuits from three plaintiffs in the U.S. who have claimed that Apple failed to inform them about the processor throttling and that such enforced slowdowns were unethical and deceptive - an attempt to force people into upgrading. That will cost an additional $6.95 for shipping and handling. If the device was still capable of retaining over 80 percent of its original battery capacity, users would have to pay Apple's $79 fee. If you're done with the iPhone, you have plenty of options.

Both analysts have said that Apple could always drop the price of the iPhone X to address demand.
