Barclays says Apple’s battery replacement program could hurt iPhone sales!!!
Apple’s offered to replace old batteries at cheaper rates will affect new iPhone sales in 2018. Barclays, says that even a small percentage of people opting for battery replacement over upgrade could affect the sale of new iPhone models.
In the new offer, Apple has reduced the price of replacement for out-of-warranty batteries (in iPhone 6 or later) from $79 to $29. In India, the price of a new battery will cost around Rs. 2,000 plus taxes instead of the earlier price tag of roughly Rs. 6,500 (inclusive of taxes).Earlier in a post on December 28, Apple had apologized over its handling of the battery issue and said it would make several changes for users.
On December 20, Apple had acknowledged that iPhone software slows down some the devices with battery problems. This had lead to lawsuit and consumer outrage based on the common belief that Apple was slowing down older iPhone models in order to push people to buy the newer variants. However, Apple later denied having taken any move to intentionally shorten the life of a product.
Well, it seems like now apple’s bad time is about to arrive.As people now experiencing many issues in iPhone X and other models too.
