Apple’s Refund for Faulty Batteries
Apple is reimbursing
3,900 to all customers who had paid for out-of-warranty iPhone battery replacement. The refund will be given only for iPhone 6 and later models whose batteries were replaced between January 1 and December 28, 2017, at Apple authorised service locations. Last year, Apple had accepted that the iOS software slowed down the performance of older iPhones to avoid battery fatigue. This was immediately followed by Apple introducing a new battery replacement program under which the company replaced the battery of the iPhone 6 or later models for 2,000 plus taxes, instead of 6,000 plus taxes. Apple says customers who paid the full amount for battery replacement during this period will be contacted over an email, between May 23 and July 27, 2018. The e-mail will instruct customers on how to obtain the credit, either via electronic funds transfer or a credit on a credit card used to pay for the battery replacement service.
