[Update] iPhone Batteries From Third Parties Might Not Match Apple's Price

He believes that if 10% of the world's 519 million iPhone owners take up Apple's offer, it could lead to a 16 million shortfall in sales.

"Even a small percentage opting for battery replacement over upgrade could have meaningful impact on iPhone sales", warn the Barclays analysts.

Apple has tweaked its statement regarding battery replacements for older iPhones, and that's a good thing if you're finding that your device struggles to make it through the day (or feels sluggish as a result).

Barclays said it may affect iPhone unit sales if a lot of them would decide to take the battery replacement offer instead of upgrading their iPhones to the updated ones.

The battery program will only be in effect through the end of the year, and there are also other reasons for iPhone users to upgrade.

It claims it did so to protect their devices from sudden and unexpected shutdowns caused by their degraded batteries being unable to run new operating system features.

This announcement had some unanticipated consequences-namely, the launch of multiple lawsuits against Apple. You can now get a discount on an out-of-warranty battery replacement from Apple immediately, rather than having to wait for the lower price to roll out next year. However, the iPhone SE 2 will likely need an overhaul that goes beyond toning down a more recent iPhone model in order for it to be compelling in a highly competitive market.

After years of conspiracy theories that Apple was purposely slowing older iPhones to prompt upgrade purchases, the opposite effect may be in play now, according to one Wall Street analyst.

The diagnostic tests would also be beneficial for costumers, since they would know whether any issues they may have encountered were related to the battery or to any other component.

Obviously, eating $50 on every eligible iPhone battery replacement was going to cost Apple money.

"While this is a good PR move for Apple to resolve the issue, we are concerned it could be a mild headwind for iPhone unit sales if more iPhone users decide to take the offer instead of upgrading to a new device".

Early in December, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo with KGI Securities published some information about the capacities of the batteries Apple plans to equip those iPhones with. It made the move, it said, "to address our customers concerns, to recognize their loyalty and to regain the trust of anyone who may have doubted Apples intentions". If you've noticed a drop in performance but can't be too sure, here are some ways to confirm whether or not it's slowing down because of a degrading battery.
