To remedy the issue, Apple has announced a discount (!) on the price of replacement iPhone batteries that are out of warranty. THE company υποσχέθηκε επίσης μια ενημερωμένη έκδοση λογισμικού στις αρχές του 2018 που θα αποκαταστήσει την management of the iPhone battery.
To replace a non-warranty battery, Apple will charge 29 dollars (out of the 79 dollars it is charging) to anyone with an iPhone 6 or newer whose battery should be replaced starting in late January.
The program will be available worldwide and is expected to expire in December of 2018.
"First of all, we have never done - and will never do anything to intentionally shorten the life of any Apple product or reduce the user experience to upgrade our products," says Apple.
"Our goal has always been to create products that our customers love".
The apology follows a statement from Apple earlier this month that it was deliberately slowing down performance on some older models iPhone λόγω προβλημάτων που μπορεί να προκληθούν από παλιές lithium-ion batteries.
Apple started with this practice since launching iOS 10.2.1 (last year) and beyond. Many of Apple's customers, right after the company's admission, filed lawsuits claiming huge amounts of compensation.
Of course, according to the company, there was no deception behind this move, and it was all done for the sake of the end user.
Recall that for the good of the end user, Microsoft collects telemetry data, while Google stores any data that is circulated online.
Anyway, the company's move is a step, but at a price for the end user, who will have to pay extra 30 dollars to replace a battery.
