Apple offers battery replacement for older iPhones in India

Apple has recently announced the battery replacement for anyone with an iPhone 6 or later whose battery needs to be replaced, reports The Inquirer.

Apple has been reported to deliberately slow down their certain models. Later, lawsuits against the company have been filed for this unethical practice. Presumably, it has led the US tech giant to offer battery at a huge discount of $29 in the US and Rs. 2,000 in India. Earlier, the battery was priced at $79 in the US and Rs. 6,000 in India.

The Company is reportedly doing it to fulfill the processors’ need to have more power, which might be difficult to get from old Lithium-ion battery. The firm is accused of manipulating the speed of  their old iPhone models to sell out the latest versions of its flagship.

The replacement for the battery in India is now also available, almost one month earlier than expected. Devices including iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone SE, iPhone 6s and iPhone 6 are available under the battery discount scheme.

Stay tuned for more tech news and updates.
