    My boss brought this idea up to me...

    With the iPhone battery controversy and the $29 battery replacement program named, does anyone plan to replace the battery at the end of the offer?

    At that point in films, I’ll have 13 months of use on my phone. Considering I plan to keep it for 36 months, it seems like a good time to renew the battery life as the program runs until the end of the year.

    I didn’t realize the X would qualify for the program.

    I haven’t had any battery issues on my X and from what I read, the issues was only related to the iPhone 8 and below.

    I guess it would make sense if you're gonna keep your phone for a while to save $50 and get a new battery.

    Yeah, I’m gonna replace my X’s battery in September with the new iPhone lol. I can upgrade monthly but I stick to the yearly iPhone upgrades, however, if I were going to keep my X longer I would probably replace the battery.

    No. I never keep a phone more than a year.

    I mean, Apple is the richest company on the planet and they still haven't figured out the lithium ion battery issue like Samsung has. The batteries in the S8s and Note 8 only degrade 5% after one year of use. Why hasn't Apple developed this technology yet like Samsung has?

    That’s a pretty good question.
    Maybe they’re working on the next best thing?

    They probably don’t want to copy anything Samsung does regarding batteries. Just a hunch.

    Is it the X eligible for battery fix? If it is I will exchange it, as I'm planning to keep this one more than my regular year.

    No issues with the battery in my X and I don’t think the X is eligible, I think it’s only for iPhone 7 and below.

    I have never replaced a phone’s battery. I’ll still use it as my secondary device when I get this year’s iPhone.

    It messes with all iPhones.

    Just right now it won't mess with iPhone 8 or X due to being newer batteries.

    If I had an X or any other new model, I would probably replace the battery later this this year, whether it needed or not. For $29 I would, but probably not for $80. And only if I planned on using it longer than 2 years. If you upgrade every year or two, I don't see the point in replacing the battery. It's going to last at least 2 years.

    I highly doubt I’ll replace the battery of my iPhone X by year’s end. I haven’t needed a battery replacement with any of my previous iPhone models and I doubt I’ll need one with my iPhone X.

    It’s for iPhone model 6 and 7 only. 8 and X are not included. It only affects those phones that are at least more than a year. That’s when lithium battery starts to degrade.

    I don’t think bigger batteries like those installed on iPhone X or 8 Plus will be affected ... btw I’m planning to have a check next November. In the meanwhile Apple must explain reasons behind this fail (the REAL reasons), facing multiple lawsuits

    Correct.... if Apple isn’t going to mess up with iOS 12 like they did with iPhone 7 with 11.2

    Wrong. It won’t mess with 8 or X just because the throttling alghoritm is model enabled, and Apple decided to enable it only for iPhone starting from the 6 up to the 7, so far.

    It will change for sure. Batteries degrade over the time

    Technically I wasn't exactly wrong.. even if enabled the batteries are still new so in theory it shouldn't mess with them anyway.

    Unfortunately I witnessed a perfectly healthy iPhone SE being throttled by iOS even with a battery at 92% health (value assessed by an Apple genius in the store).
    The iPhone is 8 months old.
    Apple screwed up really bad this time...
