Great news for those who bought a battery replacement for an out-of-warranty iPhone last year, you may be eligible for a $50 credit from Apple.
This week the tech company issued a new support page post announcing the rebate policy, which applies to purchases made at authorized locations.
Apparently this move was initiated because of what happened earlier, months back the company was throttling processing speeds on older model iPhones in order to save on battery life. Althogh late last year, Apple apologized for not informing users about the issue and promised to be more transparent in the future, the company is trying out other ways of fixing the flaw.
Between now and July 27, Apple began offering $50 discount on out-of-warranty battery replacements. This credit covers only those who purchased a battery out-of-warranty any point in 2017, leading up to that new offer.
Apple is sending mails to all eligible users with instructions on how to get the credit transferred to their account between now and July 27. For those who believe they are eligible, but didn’t get a notification, they can contact Apple directly between now and the end of the year.
According to the company, it will not offer credits for iPhone battery replacements that were performed within the warranty.
