    That’s awesome news. I can envision a long line of people checking their battery status and some lengthy discussions on why their battery needs to be replaced.

    Kudos to Apple for this positive step.

    I think this is a perfectly fair option.
    Well done Apple.

    Good deal! I might take advantage of this sometime later. My 27 months old 6s Plus will need a new battery soon. It's at around 70% battery life, according to the Battery Life app. That may not be accurate, but probably close.

    Great news from Apple. My 6S battery is in good shape at 87% battery life according to the Battery Life app. I’ll probably take advantage of Apple’s replacement program sometime in 2018.

    That Battery Life app is handy, but it seems a bit off. Opened it and got the below results:



    Then it refreshed and gave me this:



    Not much of a difference I suppose, but I would like a straight answer. Heh.

    Yeah, it does that when you first open it. If you wait a while, it gets a more constant reading. But I think they're just guessing, based on whatever info they can use. Apple no longer gives the devs that info like they used to. Also, don't check it when the phone is plugged in.

    My phone (knock wood) runs fine with all this battery/throttling crap going on. I'm not a power user so it doesn't affect me and I honestly don't have any opinion on it. Does it surprise me what Apple is doing... No. But it is what it is. I'm not going to throw a tantrum about it lol.

    I will take advantage of the battery replacement on my 6S Plus soon because I don't plan on upgrading my phone any time soon. I'm going to use this for as long as I can.

    My battery wear is pretty average according to Battery Life app (January will be 2yrs I've had my device).

    How can somebody replace iPhone battery if we do not have Apple store in our country. Would the authorise dealers do it for us?

    Yes, they will. I don’t have a store in my city, but I have an authorized repair shop in the mall. I go there for problems.

    Great! I might do both my original 6 and the hand me down I got when I cracked my screen! I wanted to pass the 6 down to my teen. I might not bother with her SE. She said she was having issues but it ages out at ios 10 so I might focus on the 6 to hand down to her!
