Apple recently announced that it was intentionally slowing down older iPhone models in order to preserve battery life. This had been a long-standing conspiracy theory floating around the internet. Apple lowered its battery replacement fee to $29 in response.

However, many people have found it difficult to get Apple to change their batteries. We went to an Apple store to see what would happen when we tried to have the battery on an iPhone 6 replaced. Apple recommended that we keep the original battery.

People made fun of exploding Samsungs, but they handled it pretty well. They refunded all phones, even all the unaffected ones for free. But when apple got caught with its pants down, you're still the one who has to pay for their defect. They screwed you over and still has the nerve to charge you for the battery replacement. This is one of the shenanigans that made me left apple's ecosystem. They don't really care about consumers

This is Apple-gate. Christina Applegate should get royalties and Apple should buy thier customers free Android phones.

It’s not actually hard. I’m 15 years old and I changed the BATTERY TWICE in MY IPHONE 6. And it was my FIRST TIME CHANGING THE BATTERY. Guess what? I didn’t break my phone it works better than ever! If you think you can do it, do it.
