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.

Here is a quick breakdown of the extra amount you will need to pay for battery replacement for a device that’s not covered by warranty starting in March:

For reference, iPhone 14’s battery’s battery replacement price is $99, which is higher compared to older models.

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.
