Apple may give rebates on iPhone battery replacements

Apple iPhone 6

Apple is adding two Chinese suppliers this year for a stable supply of 3-D sensing modules for its Face ID, a sophisticated 3-D facial recognition system and the signature feature of the iPhone X, according to industry sources on February 8.

iPhone X and iPhone 8 users don't have to worry about throttling practices, according to Apple.

Earlier this week, Apple developers received the iOS 11.3 beta 2 software which included the battery health featuers.

Users expressed outrage over the company's under-the-table throttling practices, firstly because Apple didn't explicitly inform customers that this would happen eventually, and because a large portion of affected users claim that Apple may be doing this to force users into upgrading to the newest iPhone model. Throttling was coded in the software itself to avoid random shutdowns because lithium batteries have a natural degradation process, and to offset that, Apple cut corners in performance.

While Apple has yet to say when it will release iOS 11.3 to the public, given that the update is available in public beta now, a final release can't be too far off.

Apple explains the battery performance in its support page.

But there's a way you can tell if your iPhone is being throttled. As he explains it, if current iPhone owners can simply receive a brand new battery for $29 - and in effect get a device that's as good as new - the impetus to upgrade to a new device entirely is necessarily diminished.

Taking a more optimistic view of Apple's iPhone prospects, well-regarded analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is of the mind that the real iPhone super cycle will get underway later this year when Apple releases its 2018 iPhone lineup, which will include a 6.1-inch device with an edgeless LCD display. To enable this feature, the user needs to go into - Settings Battery Battery Health (Beta). Cook didn't break down the iPhone sales by model, though. The feature came with the second update, so you will need that one. Therefore if you are interested then you can certainly check this Beta version. The iPhone-maker introduced the power management feature on iOS to ensure that unexpected shutdowns did not take place because the battery was unable to handle performance peaks. For now, this update only applies to the iPhone SE, 6, 6 Plus, 6S, 6S Plus, 7, and 7 Plus.
