Apple Might Offer Rebates To Customers Who Have Purchased Full Price iPhone Batteries

Apple is exploring whether to offer rebates to customers who previously purchased fresh iPhone batteries in the wake of “Batterygate,” the controversy about the company’s practice of slowing down older devices, reports Recode.
Sen. John Thune, who leads the tech-focused Commerce Committee, asked Apple in a letter last month: “Has Apple explored whether consumers who paid the full, non-discounted price for a replacement batter in an effort to restore performance should be allowed to seek a rebate for some of the purchase price?”

In response, Cynthia Hogan, Apple’s vice president for public policy in the Americas, told Thune in a reply: “Yes, we are exploring this and will update you accordingly.”
