One of the finest comprised in the letter is the certitude that the iPhone X and iPhone 8 series won't be slowed down when battery life is sucking, which is evidently great news for those who presently have possession on either phone model and plans to hold onto it for more than a year. According to The Verge, "If the device has experienced a shutdown due to battery degradation - which could happen with a given battery health of as high as 95 per cent - the page will tell you that "performance management has been applied to prevent this from happening again" along with the option to disable the throttling".

Apple soon began offering replacement batteries at a discount.

The move came after a scandal erupted over Apple's practice of slowing down iPhones with older, weaker batteries - in the name of ensuring more reliable performance.

After you've downloaded and installed the software, you can take advantage of the 14-day free trial to test your iPhone's battery.
