"We expected to need more time to be ready, but we are happy to offer our customers the lower pricing right away", Apple said in a statement to Axios. The revelations spurred widespread outrage from customers, who felt Apple was withholding information about the batteries in an effort to force them to purchase new, expensive iPhones, as well as several lawsuits, including one filed in California.
On the other hand, Apple's purported struggle with the sales of the iPhone X, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone 8 might be difficult to believe as Tim Cook receives a pay raise.
Apple said it will also issue an update to its operating system early next year to give users a better understanding of the health of their battery, so they can see if its condition is affecting performance. "However they weren't telling anyone that they were throttling the battery, so they should have told people that this was happening". You should also call ahead to make sure they have batteries in stock for your replacement. This confirmed a long-standing rumor that Apple had worked hard at denying over the years, but one single tweet from a 17-year-old iPhone owner brought the near-trillion-dollar profit company to a halt.
The data collated by SigmaIntell reveals that shipments for bezel-less full-screen smartphones reached 230 million in 2017.
A research firm called GBH Insights said today that the Apple iPhone was the top selling tech product of 2017. The company is currently offering battery replacements for $29 for those whose phones have been affected by the issue.
Customers took to social media to express their deep disliking of Apple's step, in addition, to show their discontent with the full year it took Apple to disclose this to the public. We know that some of you feel Apple has let you down. Since all components require certain voltages and currents to operate, in a bid to avoid unexpected shutdowns, iOS reduces the SoC frequency and therefore reduces the performance of the smartphone until the power management IC finds it reasonable. The last few generations of iPhone have opted for a lithium-ion battery which, while having many advantages, starts to lose capacity after a few hundred charges.
