Apple’s Slow Down gate takes a new turn, with now Apple releasing a new statement and apology for its deceptive deeds. If you aren’t aware of this, then let me take you back to the whole story, which claims that Apple Slows down your iPhones every year, to cope with the degrading battery in the iPhone, which results into terrible performance. And now the company owns an apology for its iPhone users, which they did, that too in a very deceptive manner as always. And Apple is now also reducing the replacement prices of a new iPhone Battery, as you read the Official statement from the Cupertino giant.
-Apple is reducing the price of an out-of-warranty iPhone battery replacement by $50 — from $79 to $29 — for anyone with an iPhone 6 or later whose battery needs to be replaced, starting in late January and available worldwide through December 2018. Details will be presented soon on apple.com.
And not only this next year Apple will roll out a new software update for iOS that will monitor your battery condition, along with how’s the overall performance of the iPhone. The company also mentions that it will now keep an eye on the performance and will do what’s best for its users, in a very efficient manner. Does this mean that they will still throttle down your iPhone but now in a more legal and efficient and transparent way?
However, the company has already lost some of its reputation due to this throttling, and this apology and price reduction won’t control the damage of its malicious tactics.
