The apology was for the lack of communication and for the fact that Apple annoyed its users.
Do you think the iPhone should have won this accolade? “We’re stuck and we’re like.what’s wrong with our phone?” That company is Apple, and that product is a little known smartphone; iPhone. Apple publicly apologized for the misunderstanding around older iPhones there are being slowed down without informing customers.
“All rechargeable batteries are consumable components that become less effective as they chemically age and their ability to hold a charge diminishes”, explains Apple.
The firm will lower the price of battery replacements – now $118 here – to $38. All that said, the most important metric for Apple – iPhone sales – gave the company much to cheer about. It may be a few weeks before Apple begins officially replacing batteries at reduced rate. Instead of letting the iPhone run at full power, Apple instead has its phones “self-balance” and take a little longer to complete tasks. “That was our eureka moment!” Apple states that it has done so to prolong the life of the older devices.

Previous year we released a feature for iPhone 6, iPhone 6s and iPhone SE to smooth out the instantaneous peaks only when needed to prevent the device from unexpectedly shutting down during these conditions. And Apple appears to be finishing the year strong, with more people starting up new iPhones and iPads than devices from any other gadgetmaker this year, according to research firm Flurry Analytics.
The company said that when some of its users complained about their iPhone models shutting off before running out of battery, it set about finding a solution to preserve the lifespan of those with ageing lithium ion batteries. Apple said in an effort to address the backlash, they would implement a series of remedies. It even suggests that once an older battery is replaced with a newer battery, performance returns to normal.
“We know that some of you feel Apple has let you down”, said a statement released by Apple on Thursday.
