After lots of press blow back, Apple has finally given in to the whole battery fiasco, issuing a letter of apology to its customers. They have also significantly slashed replacement battery prices, even for units out of warranty.
Took them way too long to address this.
$29? An Iphone 6s+ has a 2750 mah battery. I bought a 2600 mah battery pack at Target for $5. They can sell it at that price AFTER manufacturing, packaging, shipping and paying store employee costs and still make a profit. Maybe Apple adds a little bit of extra circuitry into their batteries to make them "more advanced", but $29 is frankly a ridiculous price to charge for a battery replacement, let alone the $79 they charge when they're not giving you a "special discount". Smh. Apple is a complete disgrace.
Apple has always been overpriced tech.
Which other tech company is offering battery replacements for $29?
Which other tech company is slowing down older products on purpose?
the better question would be "which company would have to offer such a thing after intentionally damaging them?"
aaaaaannd your answer is.......
Youre joking, right?
$29 =/= $399+ new phone
