Apple giving 50 dollars credit for those who had already paid to have battery replaced.jpg

According to a new report from 9to5 Mac today, Apple will give $50 credit to anyone who paid for an out-of-warranty iPhone battery replacement in 2017, prior to the discounted replacement scheme set in place by Apple as a result of "batterygate." As an out-of-warranty iPhone battery replacement previously cost $79, the $50 credit from Apple means that those affected are now on an equal financial footing with those customers who only had to pay $29 for an out-of-warranty battery replacement after batterygate had arisen.

The replacement program affects any iPhone from iPhone 6 onwards.

If your phone qualifies and you want to get the $50 credit, simply go to an Apple Store, Authorised Reseller, or Apple Repair Center. Only people who paid to have their battery replaced will be eligible, of course.

Apple should be contacting anyone entitled to the $50 credit very soon, with emails going out to all those involved starting from today and up until July 27, and everything should be explained in the email about how to claim the credit. If you don't hear from Apple by August 1, 2018, and think that you are entitled to the credit, then you have until the end of the year to get in touch with Apple .
