Apple’s battery replacement service for older phones available in India
Apple last week announced a new battery replacement programme after the company drew flak from customers
Apple's battery replacement service for old iPhones is now available in India and other parts of the world, about a month earlier than expected.
Apple last week announced a new battery replacement programme after the company drew flak from customers for deliberately slowing down older iPhones.
The iPhone maker will charge Rs 2,000 (plus taxes) for any user battery replacement. The charge has dropped from around Rs 6,000 (plus taxes).
In the US, Apple reduced the price of an out-of-warranty iPhone battery replacement by $50 -- from $79 to $29.
The Cupertino, California-headquartered company initially said that the batteries would be available at the discounted price from late January through December 2018, according to a PTI report.
Apple, however, brought the scheme sooner than promised.
Now, iPhone 6, iPhone 6s, iPhone SE, iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will be eligible for the scheme.
