To make amends, Apple said it would offer the cheaper replacement batteries and working on a new iOS feature that will give users more information on their battery's status. And we should also keep in mind that Apple's generous price cut on its battery replacements is only good through the rest of 2018. "Initial supplies of some replacement batteries may be limited", CNN quoted an Apple spokesperson as saying.
The original price of the Apple iPhone 8 is Rs.64,000 but now, Amazon India is offering its 64Gb (Grey Colour) variant for a price of Rs.54,990 only.
Apple Inc. was recently seen caught in a controversy after it admitted that it slowed down the old iPhones to increase their lifetime.
These statements came after Apple's apology for its lack of communication over how it manages iPhones with older batteries. "We've always wanted our customers to be able to use their iPhones as long as possible", the message on apple.com read.
"I think more people will update their battery than buy a new phone, globally", he said. Lawsuits have already been filed. Apple also said it will improve visibility into iPhone battery health so owners can work out whether battery condition is affecting their iPhone's performance.
Composing on its site, Apple says "We've been hearing criticism from our clients about the way we handle execution for iPhones with more established batteries and how we have conveyed that procedure".
For now, it appears that Apple's efforts to correct its past mistakes might be too little and too late.
The corresponding algorithm is only in smartphones Apple, starting with iPhone 6 models, and, most important, it is not going to remove it. To their defense, the company released a statement explaining their move. The company did, however, attempt to compensate for it by providing a reasonable excuse to the extreme step and started a program to offer a flat $50 discount on replacement batteries to fix the issue. Apple is offering the batteries at the lower price after the recent discovery that older iPhones with degraded batteries were being slowed down.
