What the Tech? Apple replacing iPhone batteries at discounted price
If you're having trouble with your iPhone dying before the end of the day, you should pay attention. Apple is offering to replace batteries in older iPhones for $29.
The discounted price was offered this time last year after a scandal to which Apple acknowledged it had created batteries that would slow their capacity over the years to force iPhone owners to upgrade their device. Apple made the discount available through the end of 2018. Normally to replace a battery in an iPhone 5se, iPhone 6, 6s, 7, 7s, 8 and the larger phone of these models, costs $49. Apple will also replace the battery of an iPhone X for the same $29, that normally costs $79. The iPhone does not have to be under warranty.
Beginning next year, January 1st to be exact, Apple will charge the full price of the battery exchange.
To have a battery replaced you will need to either mail the phone back to Apple or take it to an Apple Store.
