In Central New York, we have an Apple store in Syracuse. If you make the short drive to Albany, you will find one there too. Apple is planning on replacing bad batteries in older phones due to their own mistake.

Apple recently admitted that it was, in fact, slowing down older phones. This makes your batteries drain down and burn out fast. If you're looking to replace your battery here in Central New York, you can contact the Apple Store in Syracuse at (315) 233-5920 for the details how. The iPhone 6, 6S, SE, and 7 appear to be the ones causing trouble according to The Verge.

Apple says in its letter that batteries are “consumable components,” and is offering anyone with an iPhone 6 or later a battery replacement for $29 starting in late January through December 2018 — a discount of $50 from the usual replacement cost. Apple’s also promising to add features to iOS that provide more information about the battery health in early 2018, so that users are aware of when their batteries are no longer capable of supporting maximum phone performance."

If you can't contact the Syracuse location, try contacting the Albany one at (518) 389-0140.
