Apple Announces $29 iPhone Battery Replacements for iPhone 6 or Later

As of today, Apple has confirmed that it will replace the internal battery of all eligible iPhones (6 or later) for a $29 fee, regardless of any feedback from an official diagnostic test. This came after recent reports that Apple would only replace internal batteries that retain less than 80 percent of its original capacity. In addition, any customers who paid the original $79 fee to replace their battery before the new pricing was put into effect on December 30th, 2017, are eligible for a refund directly through Apple.

Apple can run an official diagnostic test on your phone’s battery remotely and does not require a trip to the Apple Store. Apple Support may be reached via phone, online chat, or email.

Alternatively, you may make a Genius Bar appointment at your nearest Apple Store if you choose to do so.
