Since the beginning of the year, Apple has been under intense damage control. Caught in the midst of battery scandals and code leaks, the company is spending tons of energy trying to fix bugs and maintaining customer satisfaction.

The company released a statement confirming that their latest generations of iPhones — the iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and X — would not be affected by the battery issues that have been plaguing previous versions of the phone.

Via Forbes:

iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X models use a more advanced hardware and software design that provides a more accurate estimation of both power needs and the battery’s power capability to maximize overall system performance. This allows a different performance management system that more precisely allows iOS to anticipate and avoid an unexpected shutdown. As a result, the impacts of performance management may be less noticeable on iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X.

Smartly, the company also explained that over time, the batteries of the phones would not work as well as they did when the device was first purchased, and that in the future, they’ll all have to be replaced.

These statements do well to reassure iPhone users that Apple is working hard to earn their trust back, and that they’re interested in developing phones that will have longer lives than the ones that came before them. This is something that Apple needs, especially now that they have phones that cost $1,000.
