Apple’s Sorry About Slowing Your iPhone, Wants $29 To Fix, You’re Welcome

Apple is sowwwy. They feel bad about being caught slowing down your iPhone to cover up for one of their battery design flaws, so they want to make it right. For $29.

Apple says it’s cut the prices of iPhone batteries out of warranty down to $29, starting in late January. Thanks? Shouldn’t customers expect to get the product they purchase the first time? For the original price? Are they just going to start tacking on an extra few bucks for iPhones that have the equipment to work as expected? How is this possibly a reasonable solution?

Here’s the statement from Apple:

“We know that some of you feel Apple has let you down. We apologize. There’s been a lot of misunderstanding about this issue, so we would like to clarify and let you know about some changes we’re making. First and foremost, we have never — and would never — do anything to intentionally shorten the life of any Apple product, or degrade the user experience to drive customer upgrades. Our goal has always been to create products that our customers love, and making iPhones last as long as possible is an important part of that.”

The statement adds details will be provided soon.

Couldn’t they just replace the batteries outright?

Thanks Apple.
