Apple recently announced that it will implement a price increase for iPhone battery replacements without warranty.
As of March 1, all out-of-warranty battery replacements for older iPhone models, as well as the iPhone 13 and iPhone 12 models, will be subject to a $20 increase. According to an estimate tool on the official website, Apple is currently charging almost all iPhone models a $69 battery replacement.
iPhone 14 models do not have a battery replacement price increase as most are still under warranty. In addition, the battery replacement price increase will affect customers who do not have AppleCare+ or AppleCare at the time of service.
It’s worth noting that customers with an older iPhone or the iPhone 13 and iPhone don’t pay anything if they have Apple Care+. All they have to do is take the device to an Apple Store when the battery status is 80 percent or lower.
