    I'm actually with Leo (Garz) on this one. It should be 29 always. Also my battery has held up VERY well over the almost 2 years (Sept will be 2 years). I was going to do the replacement just so I could say brand new battery when I go to sell it, BUT I'm at 92% capacity! I can't do the replacement in good conscience! lol
    Glad I don’t have to knock sense into everybody. With yours 92%, I’m assuming you being a tech person you haven’t been on that phone entirely for 2 years?

    Yes every few years. But should people phones be throttled after one year? No. They shouldn’t deplete that fast.
    This again? That’s already asked and answered. Throttling is now a choice instead of something that’s forced on you.

    And is there any scientific proof that iPhone batteries are depleting faster than other li-ion batteries? Or are you just saying something?

    Is it just me, or does $29 for a battery replacement seem............cheap?
    I did one just before the program was announced, and got $50 back from Apple last week.

    It is and I am thinking that Apple really makes a loss on everyone of these.
    I'm sure labor and cost of battery is calculated into that 29 dollars no loss or profit.

    Sorta, I also carry an Android, and I switch around quite a bit, BUT I think the battery on the 7/7+ is just a good one. I WILL evaluate in September/October, if/when I get the iPhone X2, or whatever they call the follow up. BUT if I'm still in the 90s I'll just sell as is.

    I brought my phone in for a battery replacement 2 months back and they saw that my beta was reading at 92%. He told me I would only get 8% improvement in battery life and he pushed back against doing it. He the. Ran a diag that said my Fitbit app kept crashing and reloading causing the battery to possibly deplete faster than normal. He said of deleting the app and rebooting the phone and reinstalling he app does t fix it. Then wipe and start the phone as a new device and not to do a restore from previous backup. I did that and really no change. I’m going to bring it back soon for another attempt now halfway across the country and see if they will just do it for me. I can honestly say it has been since iOS 11 was put on the phone. 10 was much better at battery management I feel.
