Apple has raised the cost of replacing the iPhone battery in official service centers. This is reported by the publication 9to5mac.
The company reported that the repair of Apple smartphones has partially risen in price — replacing the iPhone battery will cost $ 20 more than before. Apple representatives stressed that we are talking about non-warranty service of devices.
Judging by the data on the website, Apple has raised the repair prices for all models, except for the iPhone 14 series devices — their maintenance will cost $ 99, or about 7.2 thousand rubles. Replacing the battery of iPhone 13, iPhone 12, iPhone 11 and iPhone X will cost $ 69, or about 5000 rubles, iPhone SE, iPhone 8 and earlier models — $ 49, or about 3.5 thousand rubles.
The new pricing policy will come into force on March 1, 2023. The cost of iPhone battery maintenance may vary depending on the region.
Journalists recalled that in 2018, Apple significantly reduced the cost of replacing the battery — after the scandal with the slowdown of the iPhone. Customers could replace the device’s old battery for as little as $29, or about 2,000 rubles, to restore full performance.
