Apple Announces Increase in Out-of-Warranty Battery Service Fees for iPhone Models Prior to iPhone 14

If you own an iPhone model prior to the iPhone 14 series, you may want to consider getting your battery replaced before March 1, 2023. Apple has announced that the service fee for out-of-warranty batteries for these iPhone models will be increasing by 169 yuan.

Apple offers battery replacement services for iPhone users, but it is important to note that their warranty does not cover wear and tear on the battery from normal use. However, if you have an AppleCare+ service plan and your iPhone's battery is holding less than 80% of its original capacity, you may be eligible for a free battery replacement.

It is important to keep in mind that the fees for out-of-warranty battery services will still be charged at current prices until the end of February 2023. After March 1, the fee for these services will increase for all iPhone models prior to the iPhone 14 series.

In addition to the increase in service fees for out-of-warranty batteries on iPhone models prior to the iPhone 14 series, Apple has also announced changes to the fees for these services on newer models. The additional battery service fee for the iPhone 14 series will be RMB 748, while the additional battery service fee for the iPhone 13 and 12 series will be RMB 519.

It is worth noting that these fees will only be in effect until March 1, 2023. After that date, the battery service fee for the iPhone 14, 13, and 12 series will increase to 688 yuan.

If you are considering getting your battery replaced on one of these newer iPhone models, it is a good idea to use Apple's Get an Estimate tool to see what you might be charged. Keep in mind that if you choose to have the service performed at an Apple Store, you will be charged the fee indicated in the tool. Other service providers may set their own fees, so be sure to ask for an estimate before proceeding with the service.

It is worth noting that the price of paid repairs for your iPhone's battery may vary depending on whether or not you choose to dispose of the old part. Apple will inspect the product upon receipt and confirm the service charge based on this information.

If you have any additional damage on your iPhone, such as a cracked screen, this will need to be addressed before the battery can be replaced. In some cases, repair charges may be incurred to address this issue.

It is always a good idea to consider your options carefully before proceeding with any paid repairs. If you are experiencing issues with your iPhone's battery, it is a good idea to consult with Apple or a trusted service provider to get an estimate and determine the best course of action.
