FANS of Apple’s iPhone know that the tech on these highend devices is built to last but no matter how well you care for your baby, two features never seem to stand the wear and tear of constant use: the battery and the screen. At the end of last year Apple was in hot water when it emerged it was “slowing down” certain older devices with software updates, apparently to preserve battery life. The company insisted this was purely to protect older models not to nudge users to buy the latest phone but publicly apologised and lowered the cost of battery replacements. The offer is now available in SA too whether your phone is slow or not, no diagnostic test is required. The offer applies only to iPhone SE, 6,6 Plus, 6s, 6s Plus, 7 and 7 Plus*. Battery replacements cost R429,78. Book online at myistore.co.za and you’ll get your phone back within five working days. Another cool new offer is the screen replacement service. Previously, battered iPhones had to be replaced by thirdparty companies, which voided the warranty.
