Apple apologized Thursday for slowing down iPhones with older batteries without disclosing the practice to customers until last week. In a public letter, the company said, “We know that some of you feel Apple has let you down. We apologize.”
Apple said it will cut the price for iPhone battery replacements, from $79 to $29 for customers with an iPhone 6 or newer model starting in January 2018. The company also said it will update iOS in early 2018 with a new feature that lets users get a reading of their battery’s health and decide if they need to replace it. Replacing an iPhone’s battery with a fresh one should keep it running at normal speed.
