16 million less iPhone will be sold because of the battery replacement program

Apple has been involved lately in many scandals , the most notable of which is the so-called batterygate by users . Thanks to different tests that were made to iPhone devices, it was discovered that a defective battery could cause your device to slow down.

For this, Apple has offered a battery replacement for all its customers with an old iPhone. Such a replacement would cost $ 29, but could make the company lose millions in a few months.

From 29 dollars to 16 million 

Battery replacement could cause Apple to lose up to 16 million sales in a short period of time, according to Barclays analyst Mark Moskowitz. This would happen during this 2018, and it would have a very logical reason behind.

Most of the owners of an iPhone will want to give a new life to your device by changing the battery for the low price of $ 29, instead of paying a much larger amount in a more modern device like an iPhone 8.

The batterygate 

However, we still do not know how customers will act with this announcement. The new features of the iPhone 8, 8 Plus and iPhone X could end up decanting the balance to the positive side for Apple.

This low-cost battery replacement began when information leaked that Apple was slowing down old devices that had worn batteries. So far, the company had not declared anything until after this practice was discovered.

The devices affected by this batterygate are the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. If you have any of these devices, maybe you want to take a look at our article to see if Apple is slowing down your terminal. 

The Cupertino are in a bind that has caused several demands around the globe, so we'll have to see how they solve this. They have already given their answer to why they did it, but the worst may not have come yet.

Will you buy another iPhone device after this scandal? Leave us your answer in the comments!
