IFixit discounts iPhone battery replacement kits amid Apple backlash

Emmett Howard | 31 December, 2017, 00:10

There is nothing sensational in Apple saying that iPhone batteries are "consumable components", just like the oil in a vehicle. The cheapest battery replacement kit comes in at $16.99 for the iPhone 4S with the iPhone 6S' kit costing $24.99. This time, People are filing lawsuits over an idea long believed by older iPhone users. We've been told that the discounted battery replacement will be available for iPhone users in the Malaysian market and Apple will publish more details on their website soon.

To make it up to disappointed customers, Apple will reduce the price of an out-of-warranty iPhone battery replacement from $79 to $29 for anyone with an iPhone 6 or older model.

Did you find Apple's explanation and steps taken satisfactory? While Joswiak never claimed that batteries last forever, it is such statements that have created an illusion that iPhone batteries are somehow nearly immune to aging and do not need to be replaced.

The move by Apple responded to an uproar from iPhone users after news of the battery problems stoked concerns the company was unfairly nudging consumers to upgrade. This includes the device's internal storage, power circuits, and the battery itself. Apple will also be working towards improving the user experience and avoid unexpected shutdowns as batteries age.

"As a result, the device workloads will self-balance, allowing a smoother distribution of system tasks, rather than larger, quick spikes of performance all at once". Have you noticed a difference in performance lately? "The level of perceived change depends on how much power management is required for a particular device". Does that mean iPhone 8 and iPhone X are next?

Dr Robert Merkel, a software engineering lecturer at Monash University, agreed that it "did not appear unreasonable" for Apple to throttle the (central processing unit) to avoid a reboot due to a battery that can not supply enough current. That's a feature, according to Apple.

Read Apple's full "message to our customers about iPhone batteries and performance" here.

Though iFixit's offer will undoubtedly appeal to many DIY-minded individuals, some iPhone owners may prefer to leave the process of replacing their phone's battery to Apple's trained professionals. We know that some of you feel Apple has let you down. The company had previously said that it was done to conserve charge on phones with old batteries after migrating to the latest iteration of its operating system.

Going forward, Apple doesn't seem to make this CPU throttling policy optional. But some have viewed it as a strategy to frustrate customers and get them to buy a new Apple device.
