Apple Will Replace iPhone Batteries Despite Diagnostic Test Results

Apple Will Replace iPhone Batteries Despite Diagnostic Test Results

Apple said that initial supplies may be limited, though, so don't be surprised if you have to wait for your local Apple Store to have a replacement battery for your iPhone.

Many users could have smartphones operating at below 80% capacity, as the iPhone 6 debuted in September 2014, while the iPhone 6S arrived a year later. They found the idea of purchasing a premium smartphone that degrades in performance a year or so later to be preposterous. At the time, Apple said it was extending the discount to any customer "whose battery needs to be replaced". Wells Fargo & Co restated a market perform rating and set a $195.00 price objective on shares of Apple in a research note on Tuesday, November 14th.

When Apple revealed that it was secretly slowing down old iPhones as their batteries aged, some were understandably pissed.

Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) instructs Apple Store employees to offer the $29 replacement batteries to anyone who owns an iPhone 6 or newer.

However, it'll only last through the end of the year. To avoid these seemingly random shutdowns, Apple tweaked iOS to cap the power draw, in effect forcing the phone to slow down.

In addition, Apple began offering the new pricing for battery swaps on December 30 - about a month earlier than expected.

Meanwhile, that National Football League source said the departures of Trgovac and McCurley are likely not the last on defense. The first in 2005 led to the firing of then head coach Mike Sherman and the hiring of Mike McCarthy .

What that could well mean is that you're at the mercy of whichever Genius you have an appointment with.

Apple did not say whether a diagnostic test on iPhone batteries would be required when it announced the discounted battery replacement plan. For other concerns, users can schedule a call with Apple customer service, or just call (800) MY-APPLE. Apple also sought to clarify the "misunderstanding" and provide more information about the process. The situation has gotten really ugly for both Apple and consumers with affected iPhone units.

As of now, anyone with an iPhone 6 or newer device should be able to merely ask for a battery replacement and receive one for $29/£25, according to an internal memo that was obtained by iGeneration (and confirmed as authentic by MacRumors). Even then, the only way to disable throttling will be to have the battery replaced.
