Apple apologizes for secretly slowing older iPhones
03 January, 2018, 02:14

The debate assumes more importance as it was reported recently by Asia headquartered industry analysis firm Counterpoint that Apple earned United States dollars 151 on every iPhone sold in Q3 2017 which was five times its nearest competition Samsung which earned USD 31 per phone. Apple has confirmed that its "power management" system will deactivate if the iPhone recognizes that a new, full-power battery has been installed.
Apple also said it will cut the price of a battery replacement by $50 to $29 through next year.
This would be the latest concession to consumers since the tech giant acknowledged two weeks ago that some iPhones will operate more slowly due to a software fix to protect aging batteries.

It's worth noting that Apple's open letter about battery performance issues, while updated recently to clarify that the $29 replacement program is starting earlier than originally expected, still includes language that would suggest there are limits on who can get a swap. Several lawsuits have been filed seeking class action status on behalf of all iPhone owners, and are likely to be consolidated into a single case if judges allow them to proceed.
The company said it was acting to prolong the lives of older iPhone devices and guard against unexpected shutdowns.
