The Zurich Forensic Institute is scrutinizing the incident and Apple is yet to make a statement addressing the issue.

Finally, if you're technologically savvy, you may decide to replace your battery yourself.

"At the same time, there was a slight build-up of smoke, which led to around 50 customers and employees having to leave the business temporarily", said a police statement issued to Reuters. Effectively, Apple has forced the obsolescence of iPhones by secretly diminishing their performance. Chances are you're dealing with a slightly slower smartphone thanks to Apple's reveal that it was slowing down iOS devices affected by degraded batteries. On December 30, Apple said it would begin honouring a $29 price immediately.

Apple has not responded to multiple requests for comment. One analyst, Mark Moskowitz of Barclays, expects the battery offer could cause Apple to sell 16 million fewer new iPhones. Now, that reason might be comorbid with the desire to keep enslaving us to Brave New World-style "ending is better than mending" mentality, but that doesn't negate the validity of the battery life problem. Below is a screenshot of what it showed me. For as long as they do that, the stock will remain a good investment. Apple has promised a software update soon that gives us more visibility into battery health.

Their response to the battery story at first seemed to be incredulity. Most of my local stores are booked for days. It seems their apology and drop in price was not enough as they now face over 26 lawsuits.

Samsung experienced the biggest battery related headaches in recent years. Li-Ion cells have always had the occasional lemon, which will have a chance to melt down - and it's a bummer when it happens to your device.

In a media and popular culture class I took last year, we studied a chapter from a book called Do the Right Thing: PR Tips for a Skeptical Public written by Vancouverite PR expert James Hoggan.
