NEW YORK — iPhone maker Apple has issued an apology to their users, and offered USD 29-worth battery replacements for a year soon after news of the company having intentionally slowed down older versions of their flagship device — iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 6S, 6S Plus, and SE through a software update.

The Silicon Valley giant in a letter stated that the replacement offer is being done in a bid to compensate for the degrading quality of batteries.

Apple has also promised to introduce additional features to its software, iOS, to provide more information about the battery health in early 2018, so that users are well informed when their batteries are no longer capable of supporting maximum phone performance.

“We know that some of you feel Apple has let you down. We apologise,” the letter read,The Verge reported.

The letter further stated that batteries are ‘consumable components,’ and is ready to offer anyone with an iPhone 6 or later a battery replacement for USD 29 starting in late January through December 2018.

Earlier last week, Apple confirmed the news of slowing down of old iPhones and said those with older batteries will take a hit in performance.

The company, however, clarified that it is not slowing down older iPhones to urge people to upgrade to newer models, but admitted to addressing an issue with devices containing older lithium-ion batteries that result in unexpected shutdowns.
