Apple Stores Are Overwhelmed By Numerous iPhone Battery Replacement Requests

Apple Stores Are Overwhelmed By Numerous iPhone Battery Replacement Requests

Apple recently released the iOS 11.3 update recently to some of the iPhones to enhance the user experience.

"The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus improve on everything we love about iPhone, including Retina HD displays that are more attractive than ever, the most powerful and smartest chip ever in a smartphone with the A11 Bionic and more advanced cameras for unbelievable photos and videos", says Greg Joswiak, Apple's vice president of Product Marketing.

The Product (Red) iPhone 8 and 8 Plus is available on the Apple website from £699 and £799 respectively, while the special-edition Leather Folio cover for the iPhone X is £99. Aakshay Kriplani, CEO of Injured Gadgets told Motherboard, "This has caused my company over 2,000 reshipments, Customers are annoyed and it seems like Apple is doing this to prevent customers from doing the third-party repairs". "Customers are annoyed and it seems like Apple is doing this to prevent customers from doing third-party fix". But people who leak - whether they're Apple employees, contractors or suppliers - do get caught and they're getting caught faster than ever. It all does seem to be coming back down to the chip that needs to be "updated" according to Tuesday's screen fix report, and it isn't clear what precisely is happening, or what specific action trips the disabling of the sensor.

A similar thing happened for the iPhone 7 past year.

Huseby had ordered the screens, which were "refurbished screens" that were assembled in Hong Kong by a third party.


Some reports suggest that Apple was forced to shelve the gold colour option ahead of release due to production issues. The problem was related to the Touch ID fingerprint scanner embedded within the home button.

For the second time in a year, Apple has issued a warning to "leaking" employees, only for the warning to leak to the public.

iPhone users have begun to assault Apple Stores asking for battery replacements after Apple cut the cost for this procedure from $80 to $30. A few third parties like OfficeMax and OfficeDepot have started offering replacements themselves.

They said Apple could make an announcement about iTunes music downloads being stopped in early 2019 or by March 31 next year.

Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
