Batteries that swell and deform the case are an Apple innovation.
So swelling batteries are magical?

It's kind of ridiculous that they never bothered to fix that or the underpowered charger issue. The batteries still have issues. While recent models lack user serviceable batteries, the older parts are still sold. They're mostly rated at 1.5-2 stars on Apple's site. If anyone doubts that the batteries are absolute garbage, I link them to that.
