So if you have any iPhone model from iPhone 6 to iPhone 7, you qualify for $29 battery replacements as long as your device is in good condition and doesn't have any other defects.
If you've gone into your local Genius Bar or called Apple support to get your aging iPhone's battery replaced, you might be aware that the company will perform a diagnostic test physically or remotely on your device to determine whether the device is still capable of retaining more than 80 percent of its original charge capacity or not.
But for Apple's $29 battery replacement mea culpa, Apple has reportedly made a decision to waive those test results.
Last week, Apple apologized for its iPhone performance slowdown "misunderstanding" and offered select iPhone users a discounted price on battery replacements.
The debate assumes more importance as it was reported recently by Asia headquartered industry analysis firm Counterpoint that Apple earned United States dollars 151 on every iPhone sold in Q3 2017 which was five times its nearest competition Samsung which earned USD 31 per phone.
Unfortunately, Apple has been denying lots of folks a new battery. So, the company is offering discounted batteries for customers in order to "regain the trust of anyone who may have doubted Apple's intentions", the post said.
The clarification comes from an internal Apple memo obtained by iGeneration.
In mid-December, Apple was forced to confirm what many had suspected: it was deliberately crippling the performance of older iPhones when users upgraded to newer versions of iOS.

Apple said last week it would cut the $79 battery replacement fee to $29 in January. The new out-of-warranty price is available "for anyone with an iPhone 6 or later whose battery needs to be replaced", the site reads.
Some consumers are not satisfied and are taking the iPhone maker to court.
In a research note sent out to its clients today, [investment banking company] CLSA said that Apple's iPhone X shipment numbers are "unlikely to improve" upon the company's Q4 2017 sales.
