We’ll test your iPhone to see if it has a battery issue or a different power issue. Your repair fees depend on the diagnosis and if the issue is covered under warranty or AppleCare+.
Our warranty covers a defective battery, but it doesn’t cover wear from normal use.
If you’re covered under AppleCare+, we’ll replace your battery at no charge if it retains less than 80 percent of its original capacity.
If your iPhone needs battery replacement and it’s not covered, the service fee is $79.
If your iPhone has another power issue, we’ll give you the repair price after we determine the cause.
Your iPhone battery service might be covered by your warranty, an AppleCare plan, or consumer law. Otherwise, you’ll pay an out-of-warranty fee for battery service, as shown below.
Battery service For all iPhone models
In-warranty or with AppleCare $0
Out of warranty $79
All prices are in US dollars and are subject to tax. We’ll add a $6.95 shipping fee if we need to ship your iPhone.
iPhone battery service Review
My iPhone 5 is a year old. I talked with Apple online, and they ran the test. They told me I need to get a battery replacement. My usage time is around 5-8 hours (check emails, facebook, texting, calling) And my standby time is no more than 14 hours. I’m using ios 7 right now. I don’t have AppleCare, which means I need to pay $79 exclude tax to get the battery replacement. Is it worth money? I tried every single ways that list online to improve my battery life. All FAILED! Or should I just buy a external battery/battery case instead?
5-8 hours usage seems to be what most on the 5 get. depending on a number of variables of course. worth is subjective. 79 to some is a lot. 79 to others is nothing.
