That’s 1 thing I don’t get. Why queue? It’s only a phone

So very true but they have behaved in a very underhanded way. I hope it does lose them  those customers who like to keep their phones 2+ years or pass them on to others. Maybe they want to kill off the resale trade, would anyone now buy a 2 year old iPhone?

Or it will just increase Apple's sales of replacement batteries and their charges for fitting them.
Did you know that you cannot buy a genuine Apple battery on Amazon, ebay etc.....?
The only way is to pay Apple to fit one.
