Apple Canada Offers $64 iPhone Out-of-Warranty Battery Replacement Credit

The credit specifically applies to out-of-warranty battery replacements for iPhone 6 devices and later. The company found that the iPhone 6 is 3.3 times more likely to bend than the iPhone 5s, and the iPhone 6 Plus is 7.2 times more likely to bend than the iPhone 5s, according to the documents.

Apple is leaving no stone unturned to put the whole iPhone battery controversy behind and in December previous year, it even handed out iPhone batteries at just $29 which was a significant drop from the earlier price of $79 as part of the iPhone battery replacement program.

The company lowered the price of replacement batteries from $79 to $29 starting December 28.

In addition to adding a new toggle to iOS 11.3 this year, which allows users to optionally turn that power management system off if they so prefer, Apple also changed its policy on battery replacements.

The new $50 credit essentially extends the discount to iPhone owners who bought the battery replacements last year-something Apple hinted it might do in a letter to a U.S. senator back in February. Apple will be reaching out to eligible customers until July 27, 2018 with instructions how to receive the credit.

As a result, all battery replacements now cost customers $39 in Australia, with similar price reductions worldwide, until the end of 2018. Federal judge Lucy Koh wrote that Apple knew about the new phones' propensity to bend before it launched the devices in 2014. Apple was ordered to turn over internal testing documents and reports as part of discovery in the case.

The credit will be applied to the credit card originally used to pay for the battery replacement.

The page further says that those customers who have not yet received an e-mail from Apple about the credit can contact the firm from their support page until December 21, 2018.
