  • Here is how to get your $29 iPhone battery replacement from Apple

These measures include reducing the price of an out-of-warranty battery replacement, taking it from $79 to $29 for all of 2018.

The company said it used a software update to improve power management during peak workloads and "avoid unexpected shutdowns on iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s Plus, and iPhone SE". Lawsuits have already been filed.

"Of course, when a chemically aged battery is replaced with a new one, iPhone performance returns to normal when operated in standard conditions".
