How to replace your iPhone battery

After years of speculation and rumours, Apple has confirmed that it slows down the speed of older iPhones to prevent sudden shutdowns by degraded batteries. It was widely rumoured for years that this was the case, so it was even more staggering that the rumour was confirmed in an Apple announcement.

If you are the owners of an iPhone 6 or older model, then chances are you are dealing with a smartphone that is slightly slower thanks to Apple slowing down your iOS devices.

In response to the announcement, Apple has slashed the price of its battery replacement in-store service from $119 to a more reasonable $39 for 2018 only. This battery replacement can extend the usefulness of your iPhone for another year or two.

Have you noticed your iPhone slowing down in recent months? Have you had your battery replaced? Did it help?
