Apple AirPods are an expensive piece of miniature equipment and since battery life hasn’t evolved at all, do not expect these wireless devices to last a long period of time if you plan to use them for a long period of time. Since they feature the same battery type found in smartphones and tablets, they will degrade equally, which is why Apple is giving the ideal treatment to owners of the AirPods, but in order to avail that, you will have to make sure that they are still under warranty.
AirPods Battery Replacement Will Cost You a Total of $49 If They Are Not Under Warranty
If you haven’t noticed Apple’s Service Pricing page, you will notice the details regarding the AirPods’ battery replacement pricing, but to clear up all the confusion, here is how everything will work. If you take a look at the table below, you will see that Apple is going to be charging $49 to replace the battery of the AirPods if they are not covered under warranty. If they are covered under warranty, then you will not be required to pay a single dime.
However, you should also be informed that while Apple does provide free battery replacements for these products, it will not provide free servicing for the eventual wear and tear of the AirPods, which is bound to happen should you continue to use them on a daily basis.
Another thing you should keep in mind is that Apple is going to be charging you per AirPod, so don’t get carried away thinking that the company’s service department isn’t going to be minting money from providing you with stellar service without getting their cash. If you are still interested in purchasing these pair of AirPods, then you can get them for the price of $159.
They are an expensive piece of hardware, and we hope that they will improve considerably when their predecessors arrive.
