iPhone Battery Replacements: Here Is What Apple Has Clarified So far

If you own a device from iPhone 6 and onwards, you will be eligible for a battery replacement that will set you back by just $29 (reduced from $79 courtesy of Apple). This was Apple’s repayment after it openly acknowledged that it was slowing down your iPhone in exchange for better battery life. However, there are still some things that you should be made aware of before commencing your trip to the Apple Store. This will end up saving you a lot of time and hassle in the end.

If the iPhone Owner Is Willing to Pay $29 and the Smartphone Has Not Been Damaged, Apple Store Employees Will Not Be Able to Refuse Your Request

Apple has provided a clarification on its battery replacement policy. Initially, there were some reports that Apple Store employees refused customers from changing their batteries because these batteries still managed to pass the Apple diagnostics testing phase.

Please keep in mind that Apple might not be able to replace your battery if it finds other damage to the device or interfering third-party components. Now, what will happen if you are trying to get a free battery replacement through an AppleCare warranty claim? Well in that circumstance, the device diagnostics will still be a prerequisite. The current policy will flag a battery as needing repair if it retains less than 80 percent of its original charge capacity.
