Apple says it will replace older iPhone batteries regardless of wear and tear

Apple has confirmed it will allow users to take advantage of its new, cheaper battery replacement programme, even if their smartphone doesn’t have a faulty power pack.

Confusion has arisen after some reports suggested that those with an iPhone 6, iPhone 6s or iPhone SE were being turned away from stores after their phones passed a diagnostics test.

However, an internal memo seen by a French tech site says that Apple will allow anyone with an iPhone 6 or newer to receive a new battery.

The power pack’s price has been slashed to £25, down from £79, after it was revealed Apple deliberately slowed down older models of its bestselling smartphone.

Apple has defended itself, saying it did so to improve the overall life cycle of its products.

However, many believe Apple’s intentions were less than honourable, with the aim of forcing users to buy a new iPhone.

The replacement programme is due to start later this month and run until December 2018.
