Apple has just officially apologized to all its iPhone customers via a public letter, explaining the situation regarding slowed down older iPhone models. This apology comes in right after the company had made it public knowledge that they do indeed intentionally slow down older iPhone models to preserve the batteries in these phones which inevitably begin degrading from the very first use. While a degrading battery isn't anything new and it happens to all smartphones, the fact that Apple had been intentionally slowing down their iPhones to compensate for that was previously unknown.

You can read the full letter by clicking here, but if you are in a hurry, feel free to only read the relevant points as highlighted below.

·        Apple explains that batteries degrading is a natural phenomenon

·        The company is offering battery replacement for only $29 from late January 2018

·        The offer is applicable only to owners of iPhone 6 or later

·        The offer will end in December 2018

·        In 2018, iOS will show users detailed info about the condition of their battery

It remains to be seen how Apple fans who felt betrayed, reacts to this letter.
