Apple Stores Are Overwhelmed By Numerous iPhone Battery Replacement Requests

Apple iphone slow

Apple announced iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus (PRODUCT) RED Special Edition, the new generation of iPhone in a stunning red finish, will be available in stores beginning todayApril 13.

Even worst, the iOS 11.3 release did not stop the poor battery performances, so Apple is forced to hire external contractors to solve out all the requests.

The other day it was reported that due to an update to iOS 11.3, iPhone users found to have repaired their iPhone displays at third-party fix stores had their touchscreens disabled. The company wants to extend the offerings of the top-of-the-line features to mid-level iPhones, upgrade mid-level iPhone users to premium iPhones, maintain the higher price bands on new features while tapping the emerging markets with older devices.

"Customers are annoyed and it seems like Apple is doing this to prevent customers from doing third-party fix".

With that said, UBS analyst Steven Milunovich believes that Apple's upcoming iPhone lineup will be considerably more affordable and that Apple will make up the revenue difference on increased volume.

Shaw Communications (SJR.B) PT Lowered to C$27.00
Citadel Advisors LLC purchased a new stake in shares of Shaw Communications during the fourth quarter worth about $217,000. The company's loss, including the restructuring costs, resulted in a net loss of $164 million or 33 cents per share.

A similar thing happened for the iPhone 7 previous year.

It's no secret that Apple Stores have struggled to keep up with demand for iPhone battery replacements, and it appears the company is trying a new strategy to reduce fix times for customers with affected iPhones. Apple charges [$149] to fix the screen of an iPhone 6S, 7 or 8, [$169] for the larger iPhone 6S Plus, 7 Plus or 8 Plus or [$279] for the top-of-the-line iPhone X.

Last year, Apple released a red version of the iPhone 7 to commemorate the decadelong partnership with Product Red, according to CNNMoney.

Apple also called part-time employees or those who normally work for AppleCare but ultimately was forced to call in people from other companies.
