Vantage Financial Partners Ltd. Inc. bought a new stake in Apple during the 2nd quarter valued at about $400,000.

Couple of weeks back, Apple's CEO Tim Cook apologised to customers using older version of iPhone for the phone artificially slowing down in order to save battery life. Whether or not this is the true reason for slowing down older models is up in the air, but many customers are up in arms due to the lack of transparency regarding the process. This caused backlash from customers who didn't like that Apple was slowing down their phones without telling them first.

Subsequent to the issue, Apple quickly went into damage control mode and announced it was reducing prices of the replacement batteries by United States dollars 50.

For those unfamiliar, Apple recently admitted to limiting the performance of certain iPhones in an attempt to prevent the device batteries from shutting down without warning.

Anecdotal evidence also suggests that you may be able to get a refund for the difference if you happened to pay for a battery replacement at the original full price of $79/£79 before the new policy went into effect, but this is likely on a case-by-base basis.

Apple also said it will cut the price of a battery replacement by $50 to $29 through next year.

Many users could have smartphones operating at below 80% capacity, as the iPhone 6 debuted in September 2014, while the iPhone 6S arrived a year later.

All lithium-ion rechargeable batteries like the ones used in iPhones degrade over time, but Apple devices have been experiencing a number of problems from this reduced performance.

If you're exhausted of your iPhone battery not performing and you're running an iPhone6 or later, you're in luck.

Apple has now confirmed that it will replace all batteries in the iPhone 6 and above for the $29 fee whether or not they pass the Genius Bar diagnostic tests. There's been a big push in the "right to repair" movement, with numerous lawsuits in progress from groups around the world that would like the right to fix a device that they own rather than being reliant on the company that produced the item. Apple's remedy for the wave of bad PR was to replace batteries in older iPhones for a mere $29.
