Apple now offering $29 iPhone battery replacements


If you’ve got an iPhone 6 or later and were planning to have your battery replaced at a discount next month, it looks like your wait has been shortened considerably.

Apple today confirmed that it is now offering $29 battery replacements to qualifying iPhones. “We expected to need more time to be ready,” Apple explained to TechCrunch, “but we are happy to offer our customers the lower pricing right away. Initial supplies of some replacement batteries may be limited.”

These discounted battery replacements are available to iPhone 6 and later models whose battery needs to be replaced. The offer, which knocks $50 off the regular price of an iPhone battery replacement from Apple, is available worldwide through December 2018.

If you’ve got an iPhone 6 or later and you feel like your device has been slowing down, it’s worth it to visit an Apple Store and see if your battery needs to be replaced. These battery replacements are being offered at a significant discount, and in exchange you get restored performance and battery life.

    Is this something they can do while you wait (or shop for an hour or whatever) or are you without your phone for a day or three?

      The Apple store was able to fix my wife’s broken screen in no more than 2 hours. I would imagine a battery swap would take less time than that.

    The closest Apple store to me is inside of a mall so if you could leave it there and shop for an hour or so then come back and get it that would be awesome because it’s a 45 min drive from my house so that would suck to have to leave it for a day or two, I can’t imagine they’d make you do that.

      Consider yourself relatively fortunate. I have a 2 hour drive to the nearest Apple Store!

    I went to the Apple Store today to get a price adjustment on a battery replacement I got on 12/23 for my dad’s iPhone. I was unable to get it because they said they don’t have any information. :/

    How will this work I have an iPhone 7 Plus I have not seen my iphone slowing down but I would love to replace the battery…. I noticed that my battery is draining quick well I qualify for 29$ Battery replacement????

    • Ty Christensen

      Yes, they said for iPhone 6 and newer. I’ve read a few articles saying they’re starting to do this already and you won’t be turned down at the Apple store so go give it a shot is what I’d say.

    I sure hope they lose the class action lawsuit. what a crap company, they should be providing one free battery replacement for all the phones they slowed down and $29 replacements after that

  • bkat11

    I saw on Reddit that people going in are getting turned away or getting grilled about getting the battery

    I can only imagine the uproar if Samsung pulled crap like this!

    Will you still pay $29 even if you have apple care +?

    • SurvivingSunnyvale

      Since the average battery is good for 3 years before starting to degrade, your AppleCare would have expired before needing to replace the battery.

      • The One

        That’s a bit generous. Most will experience significant degradation by the 2 year mark, as these batteries are only designed to endure around 500 charge/discharge cycles. If your phone battery is 2 years old and you plan on keeping the phone for a third year, a battery replacement is a cheap and wise investment.

    I’ll happily pay Apple $29 even $79 if they can remove the notch and still include Face ID.

    • SurvivingSunnyvale

      Sounds like you really wanted an iPhone 8.

  • Sharti24

    Ordered mine! Had to call my local store and have them take an order for 1 battery? Weird, you’d think that apple would buy thousands of batteries and just swap them out. Why order individually?
