Apple Inc is reportedly considering offering rebates to its consumers who were asked to pay the full price for replacement batteries for their old iPhone models.

Meanwhile, spelling more trouble for Apple it was just last week that the U.S. Department of Justice and the Securities and Exchange Commission said they were investigating whether Apple violated securities laws concerning its disclosures that it slowed older iPhones with flagging batteries. According to Apple this will prevent the phones from shutting down, but obviously, users were not happy with the news.

As promised Apple released a new iOS 11.3 Beta 2 update, which featured Battery Health feature for the older iPhones.

Although some iPhone owners have expressed reservations about giving up Touch ID, the overwhelming view among iPhone X owners has been that they were immediately converted and would never want to go back. With your iPhone connected to the Mac running coconut Battery, you get access to metrics about your iPhone that can help you determine if it's worth spending $29 on a new battery. With this information, coupled with the Battey Health settings, users now have more control over their iPhone's power than ever before.


iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X models use a more developed hardware and software design that offers a more precise estimation of both power needs and the battery's power ability to boost overall system performance.

In other words, the new Battery Health feature lets you know the maximum capacity of your battery, also allowing to know as to whether or not it is operating at peak capacity. In the letter, the company revealed that it would consider extending its reduced-cost battery replacement program beyond 2018.

"I would say less than 10% of the phones we have ordered batteries for actually need a battery, based on diagnostics", one Genius told Business Insider in January, requesting anonyminity because they were not authorized to talk to the press. Therefore if you are interested then you can certainly check this Beta version.

An important thing to note here is that Apple also said that all iPhones contain basic performance management features necessary for safety and to protect the components inside the phone. For now, this update only applies to the iPhone SE, 6, 6 Plus, 6S, 6S Plus, 7, and 7 Plus.
