Apple is already running out of replacement iPhone batteries, according to reports

In a letter to Apple, the council requested an explanation for the slow-down and about what is being done to rectify the problem. It wants a response by Friday. That's up from 964 in 2015. Disgruntled customers, however, argued that this practice in fact aimed to force them to upgrade sooner than they would have if Apple hadn't slowed down the devices' performance. "[While the] iPhone X breaks some monotonous design cycle Apple had with previous iPhones, the pricing of the X is beyond the reach of the bulk of Chinese consumers", he wrote in an email to CNET.

In order to placate the litigious masses calling for Tim Cook's head over the iPhone battery slowdown feature, Apple recently made a decision to slash the cost of its iPhone battery replacement program.

Apple is still under fire after it recently revealed that it deliberately throttles iPhones' performance, and now the USA government is questioning the company about this practice. If customers knew about this, they might have chosen to replace their handset's battery rather than purchase a new smartphone altogether.

Even worse, Apple store employees say, numerous replacement batteries are going to users who don't actually need a new battery, and for whom a battery replacement will not speed up their old iPhone.

Apple flooded with lawsuits because of its recognition in a deliberate slowdown of its smartphone - in the court of it began to serve around the world. The measure might be too small to make up for the whole matter, however, and the company is now under investigation in its home country, as well as overseas. In South Korea, 370,000 individuals - or the equivalent of one out of every 138 people who live in the country - have signed up to join a class action suit against Apple.

The interrogation comes from the Shanghai Consumer Council. While the number of complaints it reports receiving is relatively tiny, Apple has gone out of its way to avoid riling Chinese authorities.
