Apple is increasing battery replacement service charges for out-of-warranty devices
Apple is increasing service charges for battery replacement of out-of-warranty iPhones, iPads, and MacBooks starting March 2023.
The price rise ranges from $20 to $50 for different kinds of devices.
The change was spotted by Reddit users, who pointed out that Apple had silently mentioned this change on the repair pages for these devices.
This change is global and local price rises may vary.
For instance, the UK will charge GBP 20 for an iPhone battery change, while France will charge EUR 24.
The service charge increase won’t affect AppleCare or AppleCare+ subscribers or folks who rely on third-party repair services.
While the price increase in service charge for battery replacement is not ideal, it will still lease a new life to your device so you don’t have to spend money on a new gadget.
