Here's how you can take advantage of Apple's Battery Replacement Program

Keep your devices charged

"We expected to need more time to be ready, but we are happy to offer our customers the lower pricing right away", said Apple said in a statement to TheVerge.

Apple also said it will cut the price of a battery replacement by $50 to $29 through next year. We as of late broadened a similar help for iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus in iOS 11.2.

Apple Inc. was recently seen caught in a controversy after it admitted that it slowed down the old iPhones to increase their lifetime. Critics said that Apple should have been more transparent about it even though its intention was for the best interest of its users. "We've always wanted our customers to be able to use their iPhones as long as possible", the message on apple.com read.

Since Apple's confessed to slowing down old iPhones with degraded batteries, the company has gone on to offer a discount on replacement batteries, after classifying them as consumable components. It said the power management feature, which was quietly rolled out in an iOS update a year ago, was only necessary for phones with aging lithium ion batteries. To date, 15 class action lawsuits have been filed against Apple alleging misrepresentation, breach of good faith, and deceptive business practices. That disclosure played on a common belief among consumers that Apple purposely slows down older phones to encourage customers to buy newer iPhone models. After all, your battery replacement will be handled in-store by a certified Apple technician, and should result in you receiving a device that is wholly intact, complete with waterproofing (i.e. iPhone 6s and iPhone 7). Apple said the problem was that aging lithium batteries delivered power unevenly, which could cause iPhones to shut down unexpectedly to protect the delicate circuits inside.

Today, the tech site BGR also took Apple to task for the company's "far from perfect" apology. Earlier, the company was facing criticism after admitting that changes and updates made by it are slowing the its older phones. But the program offering $29 battery replacement is now being launched sooner than expected.
