The price for the battery was reduced after Apple admitted and apologized for throttling down the power on iPhone 6 and later models to avoid shutdowns.

Apple answered eight questions asked by Sen.

Separately, a memo distributed to Apple stores and authorized retailers last month said that batteries for one model of affected iPhone, Phone 6 Plus, won't be delivered until March or April. The two-week gap between the iOS 11.3 beta 1 and beta 2 gave Apple the chance to address the majority of the problems, and the iOS 11.3 beta 3 update and further releases should just be a series of minor bug fixes and tweaks.

Thune, who chairs the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation, originally gave Apple a January 23 deadline to reply but granted an extension at the company's request, according to the committee's communications director, Frederick Hill.

Apple has released an update through its public beta program that enables users to check the health of an iPhone's ($1,099.99 at Best Buy) battery.

IPhones will automatically shut down in certain conditions: In the letter, Apple said that in certain conditions, such as extreme cold, the smartphone is created to shut down "to protect the device's electronics at low voltage". However, since several users were made to purchase new batteries for the old price of $79, Apple has confirmed that it will issue rebates to all such consumers.

Hogan outlined that in fall 2016, Apple received notice of iPhones unexpectedly shutting down. Morgan Stanley increased their price target on shares of Apple from $200.00 to $203.00 and gave the stock an overweight rating in a report on Friday, February 2nd.

iPhone X and iPhone 8 users don't have to worry about throttling practices, according to Apple. Hogan wrote Apple has seen "strong demand" for the replacements but did not clarify how strong the demand exactly is.

To disable battery throttling, users can click Disable at which point the message will update saying that the user has disabled the feature. Last week, the SEC and the Department of Justice announced investigations into the slowdowns.

Apple's letter to Thune mostly outlined its actions that had already been publicly disclosed. The company will continue its discussions with the committee, he said. Apple may issue refunds to customers who paid full price to replace the batteries on older iPhones before the company offered a $50 discount as part of its apology for secretly slowing down the devices.
