Apple Prefers Price Drop for Battery Replacement

             The change of old batteries now costs only 29 euros at Apple. The company responds to the ongoing criticism of the possible throttling of iPhones.
            

        

        Apple makes the exchange of worn-out iPhone batteries already cheaper – instead of the first announced only at the end of January. It was initially expected to require more time, said Apple on Sunday. "The availability of some replacement batteries may be limited at the beginning," a spokesman said at the same time. Apple lowers the price of replacing battered batteries by the end of 2018 from 89 to 29 euros.
Apple had come under fire because the company left consumers for months in the dark about the fact that the performance of iPhones with worn out batteries may have been throttled to avoid a sudden shutdown under full load.
In the US, several consumer lawsuits have been filed against Apple. The plaintiffs argue that they have been tempted to buy new phones, instead of making their iPhones fit again with a battery change. Apple counters that the measures have made older iPhones longer usable.
Who can the affected customers turn to? Details about the concrete handling of the battery exchange are not yet available. The first port of call is Apple Support; authorized service partners and telephone providers are likely to be able to help in the near future.
Meanwhile, several competitors emphasize they did not slow down their smartphones. Samsung and LG shared this with PhoneArena, HTC and Motorola over The Verge.
