i'm personally waiting until later in the year, since my battery life is not *too* bad right now, and i want to make this phone last. but i accidentally upgraded to ios 11 last week and my battery performance has definitely gone down.
If you call AppleCare, they will reserve a battery for you at the closest store to you without you having to go in. The store will then call you when it’s in stock to come drop it off for repair.
Anyone else intrigued by the caption on the picture in the article?
"A man is seen calling on an iPhone on October 30, 2017."
I'm so ready for the flip phone revival
“They are used to waiting, so make them wait longer” said Apple.
Does this mean us Plus users get the replacement for free? Probably not, but fingers crossed.
It’s kinda like trying to find a single GTX 1070.
Funny question, but why is this issue exclusive to iPhones? I have a shitty low end android phone as a backup phone for 5 years. Couldn't keep it pass 3 hours SOT but it never turns off under heavly load or specific percentage. Same goes with my sister's Galaxy S6, shitty screen-on time but never turns off.
Apple is letting people get new batteries even if they don’t actually need new batteries. They’re doing the diagnostic, showing the results saying the battery is 98% healthy, not 80% which is the threshold for a battery replacement, and 9/10 people they do the diagnostic for don’t need the batteries but they’re still opting to get them swapped. People who don’t need any repair are fucking things up for people who actually are affected. And Apple is telling people that this program is going until December, please come back later so they can take care of people who do need battery repair first, but people are entitled. I get you’re pissed at Apple, I am too, but you’re screwing over people who need new batteries for real.
