Apple’s $29 battery replacement program for customers whose iPhones have slowed down is ending in December.
The program allows owners of out-of-warranty batteries to get replacements, which normally cost $79, at the lower cost. However, the deadline is fast approaching, The Mac Observer reminded us Wednesday. Apple has long noted the deadline on its support page.
Some users were unhappy that Apple was slowing down older iPhones to prevent unexpected shutdowns due to old batteries.
So, Apple’s $29 battery replacement program was offered as a remedy for eligible iPhone 6 or later models.
Apple didn’t immediately respond to a request for further comment.
