If you are owning an iPhone and facing the problem of CPU slowing down then here we have bought an update to make you smile. Apple came clean last week, and yesterday released additional information on why it slowed older iPhones as well as plans to address the matter. The company confirmed the early availability on Saturday.

Apple's latest statement said that "we have never - and would never - do anything to intentionally shorten the life of any Apple product, or degrade the user experience to drive customer upgrades".

In a posting on its website Thursday, Apple apologized over its handling of the battery issue and said it would make a number of changes for customers "to recognize their loyalty and to regain the trust of anyone who may have doubted Apple's intentions". "Initial supplies of some replacement batteries may be limited", said an Apple spokesperson in a statement.

Apple was under legal lawsuits for the slowing down of performances of its iPhone. It said the power management feature, which was quietly rolled out in an iOS update previous year, was only necessary for phones with aging lithium ion batteries.

She also stuck mostly to the baseline and only twice charged the net. The Serb has not played competitively since and underwent surgery.

Customers were upset that the company did not tell them about the feature, and many thought it was an attempt to get people to upgrade to newer iPhone models. Swapping in a fresh battery should restore a phone back up to its normal speeds.

At least eight lawsuits have been filed in California, New York and IL alleging that the company defrauded users by slowing devices down without warning them.

Now you might be thinking that you need to spend $79 on a new battery but for that Apple is offering this battery replacement at an effective price of $29.

Notably, it'll likely be best to schedule an appointment with a Genius Bar member to get your battery replaced, either over the phone or through Apple's online chat support. Apple said the problem was that aging lithium batteries delivered power unevenly, which could cause iPhones to shut down unexpectedly to protect the delicate circuits inside.
