We told you yesterday how the solution that Apple had offered to settle the controversy with the issue of batteries and iPhone "slow" was a replacement at cost price, for only € 29 (€ 60 off the original price). This battery replacement program serves, according to Apple, for customers who have lost confidence in the company to recover it, and to show that Cupertino's have not acted in bad faith in this matter.
Apple announced this replacement program by the end of January, but later have announced that the beginning of it is from now on, because the preparations they needed to start it have taken them less time than they had originally estimated.
Apple has announced the start of the program in the United States. Although it warns that the stocks of batteries will be limited in an initial phase, as the necessary components are arriving at the Apple Store and authorized technical services, users will be able to access the battery change for that price of € 29. This announcement for the United States has not been accompanied by the announcement of the dates on which it will begin in the rest of the world. Presumably, as they receive batteries, the program will be extended to other countries. We will have to wait for the next working day to know if Apple Stores in other countries start accepting these requests.
The program is only valid for iPhone 6 and later, but as long as the tests performed by Apple technicians result in the device's battery degraded And who needs change. According to Apple this is the reason why some of the iPhone's functions slow down, and that is why it is an indispensable requirement for the battery replacement.
