Apple will sell batteries for iPhone at a discount to apologize to buyers

Apple published a letter with   apologies for   history with   artificial slowing of processes in   old iPhone. The company called the incident a misunderstanding and   promised small gifts to customers.

What they promised

For the next year Apple will make a discount on   replacing the   building batteries to the owners of iPhone 6, 6S or SE. Promise to take on   $ 29 instead of $ 79, which is quite   very nice. Also, Apple will add   update in   iOS detailed information about   the battery to let users know when   it's time to replace.
The promotion will begin in   end of January 2018. More information Apple promises to publish later.

What the   history with   slowing iPhones?

Lithium-ion battery packs with   time lose capacity because of what a smartphone can badly " hold " the charge, quickly sit or turn off ahead of time. Therefore, in   Last year, Apple decided to cheat and   at   iOS 10.2.1 update has taught the 6th- generation iPhones to reduce the processor's frequency to avoid peak power consumption and   prevent premature disconnection of the smartphone. The patch worked pretty neat and   specific changes in the frequency of the processor can be traced only in   synthetic tests. Note on   his eye is virtually impossible. AND   all   would be nothing if   would not Apple   I did not mention this fact. After that, in   she flew a pack of suits from   dissatisfied customers. These guys from Israel have united and demand from Apple $ 125 million compensation. But this modest woman asked at once $ 999,999,999 .
