will see another increase, bringing the price up to $99.
If you own an iPhone that was released before 2022, it’s time to start budgeting for a new battery. Apple recently announced that starting March 1, 2021, the cost of replacing a battery in an iPhone will increase by $20.
Under the old prices, an iPhone 13 owner getting a new battery from Apple would pay $69. In March, the tech giant will charge $89 for the same service. Then, on January 3, 2023, the price will increase again, bringing the total cost of a battery replacement up to $99.
Apple’s battery replacement fees apply to all iPhones released before 2022, including the iPhone 12, 11, XS, XR, 8, 7, 6S, and SE. The fees also apply to the iPhone 12 Pro, 12 Pro Max, 11 Pro, 11 Pro Max, XS Max, X, 8 Plus, and 7 Plus.
The battery replacement fee does not apply to any iPhones released in 2022 or later. Apple’s website also states that if you have AppleCare+ coverage, you may be eligible for a discounted battery replacement fee.
It’s important to note that Apple’s battery replacement fees are only for batteries purchased directly from Apple. If you’re looking to save money, you can always purchase a battery from a third-party vendor. However, Apple warns that doing so may void your warranty and could result in a damaged device.
If you’re in need of a new battery for your iPhone, it’s important to be aware of the new fees. Starting March 1, 2021, Apple will charge $89 for a battery replacement. Then, on January 3, 2023, the price will increase again, bringing the total cost of a battery replacement up to $99.
