Apple Apologize for the Throttling CPU Issues, cut price for battery replacement
After a long suspicious issues on slower performance of iPhone 6 with older battery. Apple admitted that they really throttle the CPU in iPhone with older battery. Today Apple had give an official apologize on this issue by offering discounted battery replacement for 29$ (from the original price of $89). This will effect until the end of December 2018.
Here is the official statement form apple
“We’ve been hearing feedback from our customers about the way we handle performance for iPhones with older batteries and how we have communicated that process. We know that some of you feel Apple has let you down. We apologize. There’s been a lot of misunderstanding about this issue, so we would like to clarify and let you know about some changes we’re making.”
“First and foremost, we have never — and would never — do anything to intentionally shorten the life of any Apple product, or degrade the user experience to drive customer upgrades. Our goal has always been to create products that our customers love, and making iPhones last as long as possible is an important part of that.”-Apple
While folks may disagree (and we never heard any Android Phone had the same issues and solution like this). Apple still think that the solution to prevent the phone from unexpected shutdown due insufficient current from battery by lowering CPU Speed is the best choice to be made. The battery replacement should make the performance come back to normal level. And the price of battery replacement service here is quite affordable. For peoples with iPhone 6S and older, its worth to wait for this announcement to take effect worldwide and replace the battery to gain the performance back.
