Apple to give $50 credit for battery replacements done at full-price in 2017

24 May 2018 3

Apple is giving $50 back to its customers who replaced their iPhone battery at full price last year. Apple which has embroiled in controversy last year due to the battery gate issue had admitted on slowing down batteries, which had lead to a lot of criticism for the company.

Late last year, Apple has started handing out $29 batteries to customers affected by unexpected shutdowns and slowdowns with their iPhone 6, 6s, and iPhone 7. The amount was a significant discount over the $79 Apple usually charges for a new battery. However, customers who paid for a battery replacement before Dec. 29, 2017, had to pay the full amount.

Now the Cupertino giant has announced that it will be providing a refund of $50 to customers who paid $79 for battery replacements done last year between Jan 1’17 to Dec 28’17.for the iPhone 6 or later devices.

Apple says the credit will be provided “as an electronic funds transfer or a credit on the credit card used to pay for the battery replacement service”.

Apple stated that they will be emailing eligible customers between May 23, 2018, and July 27, 2018, under the scheme on how to obtain the $50 credit. Customers who used AppleCare+ to get their battery replaced or who had the phone under warranty will not be eligible for the refund.
