Here's How Apple Is Going To Make It Up To You For Slowing Down Your iPhone

Apple has announced plans to make it up to customers following explosive claims that the tech giant deliberately slows down older devices.

In a statement made earlier today, Apple has acknowledged the backlash faced following these revelations, and is set to introduce new systems in the new year to better manage older devices.

This comes after it was confirmed that devices such as the iPhone 7, 6, 6S and SE had slower processors as the battery began to wear down.

"We've been hearing feedback from our customers about the way we handle performance for iPhones with older batteries and how we have communicated that process," the statement said.

To make up for this, Apple will reduce the price of getting a battery replacement from $101 to $37 and include a software update to help users monitor their battery life.

While admitting to slowing down older devices, Apple have said that this was done in order to maintain functionality of previous models - which came detrimental to the battery life.
