Apple Lowers Battery Replacement Cost to $29 Immediately

Apple made $29 replacement batteries available to owners of older iPhones effective starting today. The drop, announced earlier this week, was originally slated to go into effect in late January. "We expected to need more time to be ready, but we are happy to offer our customers the lower pricing right away," said Apple in a statement provided to Axios. "Initial supplies of some replacement batteries may be limited." Apple uses software to limit the performance of some older iPhones in order to prevent battery-related shutdowns. Replacing the original, aging battery with a new one resolves such issues and leads to better performance of the smartphone. The battery replacement service typically costs $79, but Apple has lowered the cost to $29. The program will run through December 2018 and targets the iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 6s, 6s Plus, and SE.

Ridiculous... They should be replacing them for free at this point.

Apple slow down your phone and hides it, and then they ask you to pay them to replace the battery which they say is the only reason they slow your phone down(when in reality this is programmed obsolescence). Dont buy this nonsense and consider a non-Apple phone next time around.
