It's worth noting that Apple'sopen 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.
"Apple is reducing the price of an out-of-warranty iPhone battery replacement by £54 - from £79 to £25 - for anyone with an iPhone 6 or later whose battery needs to be replaced, available worldwide until December 2018". "We have never - and would never - do anything to intentionally shorten the life of any Apple product, or degrade the user experience to drive customer upgrades". All rechargeable batteries are consumable components that become less effective as they chemically age and their ability to hold a charge diminishes. Supplies may be limited at first. Apple conceded it hadn't communicated the issue sufficiently well, and promised a more affordable way to replace the battery inside handsets dating back to the iPhone 6. Apple's remedy for the wave of bad PR was to replace batteries in older iPhones for a mere $29.
Perhaps more importantly, there are reports that Apple is loosening its insistence when it comes to tests of battery health. You do need to have an iPhone 6 or newer, though. While many Android phones allow users to fix them on their own, Apple has been vigorously fighting against consumers that want to replace an old iPhone battery on their own, claiming that owners are merely buying the right to use the device rather than owning it outright.

By failing to properly disclose at the time that the company had breached an implied contract with consumers, one of the suits says, by "purposefully slowing down older iPhone models when new models came out and by failing to properly disclose that at the time the parties entered into an agreement".
