On the heals of “BatteryGate” Apple recently announced that they will replace the batteries on iPhone 6 and newer phones for $29. This will be a $50 saving as the normal price for this replacement is at least $79. If you don’t know what BatteryGate is, it is the alleged reports that Apple was purposely slowing down phones to force upgrades. We believe Apple’s version which was basically to provide as much life on older models as the battery degrades. However, we would have preferred Apple being a little more transparent about the process and giving users the option to bypass the automatic slowing down of the phone. Apple is offering the $29 replacement until the end of 2018 so get your new battery now!
