Beginning in March 2023, Apple will charge more for replacing the batteries in out-of-warranty iPhones, iPads, and MacBooks. The price increase for various gadget types ranges from $20 to $50.
” February 20th – 20th of February – 20th of February – 20th of February. The business notes on the page for iPhone battery replacement and repair that the out-of-warranty battery service charge for all iPhone models older than the iPhone 14 will rise by $20 as of March 1, 2023.
Starting in March, the additional cost for replacing a device’s battery that is not covered by warranty will be as follows:
- iPhone 13 and prior: $20 (total price: $89)
- iPad Pro 12.9” (5th generation and prior), iPad Pro 11” (3rd generation and prior), iPad Pro 10.5”, iPad Pro 9.7”, iPad mini (6th generation and prior), and iPad Air (5th generation and prior): $20 (total price: $99 to $119)
- All MacBook Air models: $30 (total price: $159)
- All MacBook Pro models: $50 (total price: $249)
A battery replacement for an iPhone 14 costs $99, which is more than batteries for earlier models.
This shift is widespread, therefore price increases locally may differ. For an iPhone battery replacement, the UK will charge GBP 20, while France will charge EUR 24.
Subscribers to AppleCare or AppleCare+ or people who rely on third-party repair services won’t be impacted by the service charge hike.
Notably, Apple released its self-service program, which enables consumers to get and replace parts without any outside aid, to iPhone owners in the US last April.
Even while the price rise in the service charge for battery replacement is not ideal, it will still give your device a new lease on life and prevent you from having to pay for a new gadget.
