Some benchmarking for the $29 battery -- IHS estimated in 2014 that iPhone 6 battery cost about $4.60. Add the shipment and cost of a technician in the Apple Store to fix it, and Apple's probably just about breaking even. https://t.co/awPKHCrzjE

Agreed. I wonder why so many people fail at this. Is pride so strong?

Apology: I was a dick. I'm sorry.

Not an apology: I'm sorry if you think I was a dick.

The problem I’ve heard is that Apple has often refused to replace the battery under warranty, deeming it as within their allowable threshold.

According to the press release, preventing shutdown is the only time they do it, though this seems to contradict reports from users. Of course one possibility is that their "imminent shutdown" detection is only as reliable and well-tested as their other software, i.e. not at all.

This is way worse than the maps "fiasco." Quietly slipping this functionality into a SW update was completely disingenuous. And the shaming ("how dare you suggest Apple slows iPhones!") disinfo spread by Apple press shills was/is completely unethical.

Apple's "apology" is not great (it's the classic "We're sorry if you feel X / misunderstood Y" deflection) but they have at least clarified the cause of the problem, and $29 for a battery replacement is pretty reasonable. https://t.co/XMFxNAx0vs

Still unclear is precisely *when* the slowdowns kick into gear. For example, this system is in place already on the one year old iPhone 7. Is the battery already in such a bad state? Will the iPhone X get the battery saver/CPU slow down system a year after release too? https://t.co/loM5y4qo6S

> But I see no evidence of a POLICY change.

Like I keep saying, flash is in EXACTLY the same situation as batteries. But Apple likewise provides no insight into the state of your flash, or how that is degrading performance over time.
So another lawsuit waiting to happen...

Making the price of a battery replacement $29 will destroy the sketchy third party battery market which has a lot of other benefits for both Apple and customers. Quality replacements that don’t break your phone. https://t.co/m8F6aHTfn3

Has Apple REALLY learned anything? For example will API's be opened up?
Part of the problem has been that Apple keeps so much secret on iOS (even HW info that's of no interest to an attacker or marketer) that the market is primed for craziness. >

Apple has incurred huge reputation damage from the battery-throttling issue that will likely linger for years, but this is a good move that will start to rebuild trust once the update is out: https://t.co/KjqPgwNWkH

Even better: make $29 the permanent price, not just in 2018.

Most people understand that batteries get worse over time. Less capacity. Although non-replaceable batteries ought to be usable for at least 5 years.

The problem is that nobody expects the CPU to get worse over time. That should not be happening, at all, ever.

The throttling issue is real, but FWIW I have also found that sometimes a complete device wipe + restore “cures” an impossibly slow iPhone. Some other weird performance bugs seem to exist.

All I see is a @panzer article that never correlates the 10.2.1 update to the slow downs and articles from after February that claim Apple doesn’t slow down iPhones under any circumstances — forget conspiracies as to why. Was this a different briefing? https://t.co/zxG2B9QMuR
