iPhone Battery Replacement Program Of Apple Now Live In India

iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X models use a more advanced hardware and software design that provides a more accurate estimation of both power needs and the battery's power capability to maximize overall system performance.

In the newest iOS 11.3 beta 2 which is now rolled out on all newest models like iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X beside a slew of other older devices, the company confirmed that they are now putting the power in the hands of the users.

If your iPhone suffers from another unexpected restart, the power throttling will activate again.

. It also reiterated that it had and would "never, and would never, do anything to intentionally shorten the life of any Apple product, or degrade the user experience to drive customer upgrades".

Apple's promised new iPhone battery-related performance management features made their first appearance in iOS 11.3 developer beta 2. Once you disable the performance throttling, it'll stay disabled unless you suffer a shutdown.

Once you tap Disable, the iPhone throttling will be turned off and will not give you the option to turn it back on. However, it does mean that Apple is backing down from an earlier plan to include the current brand of processor throttling to the current generation iPhones.

"Your battery is now supporting normal peak performance" under Peak Performance Capability.

An updated support document today also details every aspect of Battery Health features.

A few weeks ago, Apple officially confirmed what iPhone users had suspected for a long time. The tech giant then came out and admitted that it was slowing down devices and launched an offer that provided replacement batteries at a discounted rate.

That being said, Apple has stated the direct opposite of this in the past, so we really don't know what their next move will be. For customers that paid full price for getting their batteries replaced, Apple is considering offering them a rebate in the process as compensation.

Apple (NASDAQ AAPL) opened at $156.49 on Friday. Armbruster Capital Management Inc. raised its position in shares of Apple by 9.4% during the 2nd quarter.

The iPhone X, all things considered, is still a mobile phone under its sleek packaging.

"A miss in iPhone units shipments and big upticks in channel inventory points to additional supply chain cuts for the June quarter", Moore wrote in a research note.

KitGuru Says: It seems like this should have been the obvious course of action from the very beginning, but at the very least, Apple is trying to make amends.
