Apple said to have replaced 10 times as many batteries as expected last year
The iPhone battery alternative program is cited by Apple CEO Tim Cook as one of many a number of causes for the weaker-than-expected income. How massive an influence did it had on the corporate’s income?
Well, John Gruber from Daring Fireball claimed that Apple replaced as many as 11 million iPhone batteries in 2018. This is sort of 11 times increased than the same old fee of 1 to two million replacements yearly. Gruber went on to clarify that the consequences of the iPhone battery alternative program had been obvious after the launch of the iPhone XR and XS fashions.
If there are 11 million iPhone clients who had the batteries replaced and had been glad with the efficiency of their units, Apple has misplaced a large group of potential clients who would have in any other case upgraded to a brand new mannequin.
