BERLIN, GERMANY - SEPTEMBER 19: A shopper ltries out the new Apple iPhone 6 at the Apple Store on the first day of sales of the new phone in Germany on September 19, 2014 in Berlin, Germany. Hundreds of people had waited in a line that went around the block through the night in order to be among the first people to buy the new smartphone, which comes in two versions: the Apple iPhone 6 and the somewhat larger Apple iPhone 6 Plus.

Recently, news surfaced that suggested an Apple update was slowing down older iPhone models. Long story short, iPhone users were not happy.

Fast forward a few days and a lawsuit was filed against Apple. Apple had remained relatively quiet regarding the accusations until today when they released a statement. (Click here to read said statement.)

According to Apple, they have no intentions of shortening the life of your Apple products. Rather, Apple claims they had good intentions with their update, as it aimed to extend battery life.

Here’s where the eye roll comes in … are you ready for it? In the interest of appeasing their customers, Apple has decided to reduce the cost of replacing an iPhone battery for customers whose warranties have expired. The price has been reduced to $29 — a $50 savings.

Okay, maybe that’s fair … or maybe they could just replace the batteries free of charge.

Am I right …
