Apple: the new iPhone 8/Plus and X need less power management, as they come with 'hardware updates'
Apple's iPhone throttling saga continued on Tuesday with a response letter to questions from the Senate committee investigation, from where we learned that it may offer rebates to those who paid full price for swapping their batteries before the $29 consolation price kicked in.
