The company will now replace the battery in any iOS or OS X device you own once the battery reaches 80% health. Before today, Apple would only replace devices under its AppleCare+ plan if the battery was at 50% for iOS devices, and Mac devices were only covered under manufacturing defects, not battery degradation.

This is a great step by Apple, as it gives consumers even more confidence in their products. The new policy is for devices purchased after April 10 of this year.
