Apple Makes $29 Battery Replacements Available For User Who Have iPhone 6 And Later Devices

Apple is making its reduced $29 battery replacements available immediately for iPhone 6 and all newer models. Originally, the company said it would start the lower-priced iPhone battery replacements in late January in a letter to customers, and confirmed immediate availability in a statement to TechCrunch.

While confirming the smart move, Apple also issued a statement this morning saying that while supplies may be limited at first, it is “happy” to offer the lower priced replacements right away. The Cupertino headquartered company says it expected to need the month of January to ramp supply and prepare for the onslaught of requests from users.

We expected to need more time to be ready, but we are happy to offer our customers the lower pricing right away. Initial supplies of some replacement batteries may be limited.

Apple normally charges $79 for out-of-warranty iPhone battery replacements, but it has reduced the price by $50 following they admitted to slow performance of older iPhone models with degraded batteries to prevent unexpected shutdowns.

Thus, if you have an iPhone 6 or later and feel you need a battery replacement right away, you can try your luck at your local Apple Store today. We’d recommend making a Genius Bar appointment as well as calling ahead to check on the supply of the battery for your specific device, though.
