Apple Viet Nam LLC has launched a discounted replacement programme for iPhone’s expired battery from now until December 31 this year, reported the Viet Nam Competition Authority.
Consumers can visit authorised Apple service providers nationwide to replace batteries.
The discount is applicable to all customers using iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone SE, iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. Accordingly, Apple will reduce the replacement cost of expired batteries by some VND1.31 million ($58) from VND2.04 million to VND729,000.
For phones under warranty, Apple Vietnam LLC (through authorised service stations) will carry out the replacement for free.
Apple said the programme was implemented to overcome battery bottlenecks and prevent sudden power outages.
Apple has also upgraded its new operating system, iOS 11.3, which allows users to choose to turn off the power management function to prevent sudden shutdown.
For phones that have not been purchased through Apple Viet Nam LLC’s distribution system, consumers need to contact hotline 18001127 for instructions. — VNS
