The company also offered an apology to affected iPhone users, a week after admitting it issued a software feature previous year that makes older phones operate more slowly to offset problems with its aging lithium ion battery.
On Saturday, Apple announced that it would offer discounted replacement iPhone batteries and make them available in January.
While Apple tried to make things right, lawyers are descending with a pile of class action lawsuits against the company for intentionally slowing down old devices.
"Lithium-ion batteries become less capable of supplying peak current demands when in cold conditions, have a low battery charge or as they age over time, which can result in the device unexpectedly shutting down to protect its electronic components", explained Apple. "We apologize." On Dec. 20, Apple acknowledged that iPhone software has the effect of slowing down some phones with battery problems.

The composed proclamation says, "About a year back in iOS 10.2.1, we conveyed a product refresh that enhances control administration amid top workloads to stay away from startling shutdowns on iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, and iPhone SE". The OS version used in the phone is iOS 11 and comes with internal storage capacity of 64 and 256GB.
"We've been hearing feedback from our customers about the way we handle performance for iPhones with older batteries and how we have communicated that process", Apple said yesterday in its online apology. You can also use it to check whether or not your iPhone is affected by Apple's speed throttling.
Earlier, Apple Inc. had apologised to its users for slowing down their devices without alerting them. This price reduction for the battery replacement is valid for the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus models. They can get their iPhone batteries replaced at a discounted price. Then again, several Apple stores are spotted to have a same-day service. The company also faces a legal complaint in France, where so-called "planned obsolesce" is against the law.
The belated mea culpa came after Apple initially said it believed such performance loss was caused by a combination of factors, including a temporary impact on iPhone performance following updates of the units' operating systems.
