Apple’s $29 battery replacement offer ending soon

Any of you guys have an iPhone that needs a battery replacement?


You can most likely get it replaced for a new one by Apple for $29 , but you have to do it before December 31, 2018.


The devices that works with the program are the  iPhone SE, 6, 6 Plus, 6s, 6s Plus, 7, 7 Plus, 8, 8 Plus, and X, as these are the models that were affected by the battery slow-down issue that Apple got in a bit of trouble for. The $29 replacement offer has been in place since Dec 2017.


After December 31, 2018, replacement batteries will be priced at $49, with the exception of the iPhone X which will be $69.


Does this sound like something you need? Yes? Here’s what you do:


You can go to the official battery replacement site here,  or alternatively take your iPhone to an Apple retail store, an Apple Authorized Service Provider, or send it in for replacement at an Apple Repair Center.


Either method could take up to five business days, but anecdotally in-store battery replacements are often completed more quickly.


Take note- if you have any other damage to your iPhone that impairs the replacement of the battery, like a cracked screen, that damage will need to be repaired first before the battery can be swapped out for a new one.


If you want to check on the health of your battery before doing any of this, open the Settings app, choose the Battery section, and select “Battery Health.”


If the battery is not operating at Peak Performance Capability, you will see a recommendation for a battery replacement in order to restore the full functionality of the device.


Sound like you? Go team go!
