Apple has declared that it will be raising the cost of out-of-warranty batteries for its products. Users will have to pay more if they need to replace the batteries in their iPhones, iPads, or Macs as a result. The cost of replacing the batteries in all three items, including PCs, tablets, and cellphones, will be $20. The new prices will be effective as of March 1st. Therefore, if you have an Apple gadget with a declining battery life, this is the perfect moment to replace it.
The price of a new battery for the most recent iPhone 14 series is currently $99. There is no increase in pricing.
All iPhone 13 models, including those in the iPhone X series, cost $69 from the Cupertino-based firm. The battery replacement service costs $49 for iPhone models that have the Touch ID button and are older than the iPhone X. However, starting on March 1st, all iPhone batteries will cost $20 more to replace. Accordingly, the service will cost $69 for iPhone 8 and below devices and $69 for iPhone 13 to iPhone X series devices.
MacBook batteries can be pricey to replace, just like iPhone batteries. The servicing fee for MacBook Air models is currently $129 and will rise by $30. Currently, a new battery for the MacBook Pro and MacBook models costs $199. This will increase by $50, totaling $250.
The out-of-service battery replacement charge for all iPad models will increase by $20.
It’s important to note that only customers without AppleCare or AppleCare+ will be impacted by the price increase for battery replacement services. When the battery health falls below 80%, those who have this are not required to pay anything for battery replacement. Apple has not disclosed the primary cause of the price increase, but we infer that it is the rising cost of raw materials. Taxes and shipping costs are not included in the price increases listed above. Additionally, other nations and areas are also affected by the growth in the cost of battery replacement services.
