Is your iPhone getting slower after a software update?
Well, Apple said it is sorry for the inconvenience, and it is offering a $29 battery replacement to remedy the issue, a discount of about $50.
“We know that some of you feel Apple has let you down. We apologize,” Apple said in a letter to customers. “There’s been a lot of misunderstanding about this issue, so we would like to clarify and let you know about some changes we’re making.”
Beginning in January, and lasting through next December, customers without of warranty iPhones, including the iPhone 6 and later, will be able to purchase a replacement battery for $29 — $50 off the usual price.
The company is facing a lawsuit, alleging that a software update is forcing owners to buy new phones.
Slow batteries can lead to unaccepted shutdowns, according to the letter. The company said it would provide additional information in January.
