Only those iPhones are considered, whose batteries have changed after the warranty.
Apple offered compensation in the amount of 3,800 rubles to everyone who changed the battery from January 1 to December 28, 2017 on their iPhone. The company will return the funds that the owners of devices spent on replacing the batteries after the warranty period.
Conditions for obtaining compensation:
- the battery was replaced on the iPhone 6 and subsequent models;
- in the official Apple Service Center or Apple Store;
- in the period from January 1 to December 28, 2017;
- the device is no longer covered by the warranty.
The payment will be credited to the card that was used to replace the battery, or by money transfer. From May 23 to July 27, 2018, Apple will contact customers who qualify for the promotion, by email and tell them how to get the money.
Those who do not receive a letter from the company, but consider that they fell under the conditions, can write to the technical support themselves by December 31, 2018.
In early January, Apple began to change old batteries in the iPhone at a discount. Earlier, the media found out that iPhones are starting to work better if you replace the worn out battery, and the company admitted that it is doing it deliberately to increase the service life.
