Apple Just Apologized For Messing With Everyone's iPhones, And Offered A Solution

When news broke eight days ago that Apple had intentionally slowed down older iPhones, all hell broke loose. 

Now the company has offered an apology and a fix... a $29.00 fix.


After admitting they created the problem, Apple has offered to cut prices on replacement batteries from $79.00 to $29.00.


Apple introduced an iOS upgrade earlier in the year that intentionally slowed down the battery of older phones, and now all you have to do to replace the battery is pay the "low" price of $29.00!

See how that works? They mess up, get caught, apologize — and charge their customers to fix the problem.


People are not happy about this so-called solution:

On a completely unrelated topic, Apple CEO Tim Cook received a 46% increase in salary in 2017. Combine his $12.8 million salary with $89.2 million in Apple shares and he received $102 million in 2017.

Anyway, back to that $29.00 replacement battery...
