Added to the mix, and likely helping prevent any further lawsuits from being thrown at the firm, Apple also said it has reduced the price of out-of-warranty battery replacements for iPhones.
It would seem the latter has been the option of a trio of plaintiffs in the U.S. who have filed lawsuits against Apple essentially claiming Tim Cook's crew failed to inform them about the processor throttling and that such enforced slowdowns were unethical and deceptive.

In mid-December, Apple was forced to confirm what many had suspected: it was deliberately hamstringing the performance of older iPhones running newer versions of iOS.
Let us know of your experience getting your battery replaced in the comments. Apple first said that it would begin the $29 battery replacement from late January 2018, with the offer running through December of this year.
It's worth noting that Apple's open letter about battery performance issues, while updated recently to clarify that the $29 replacement program is starting earlier than originally expected, still includes language that would suggest there are limits on who can get a swap.
NY fire caused by child playing with stove
D&E Equities said through spokesman Ronn Torossian that it is communicating with the city about the Thursday fire in the Bronx. New York City's mayor says 12 people have been killed in a Bronx apartment building fire including a child around a year old.
