Apple to replace all old iPhone Batteries
Apple has confirmed that it will replace all batteries as part of its battery replacement program even if their phone passes Apple’s own diagnostic test and is healthy. As long as the owner of the iPhone 6 or later handset is willing to pay the $29 fee after an overwhelming discount of $50, which was initially found at $79 following a wave of controversy over power management features in older iPhones.
This means that all iPhone 6, iPhone 6s, iPhone SE, iPhone 7, iPhone 8 and iPhone X owners are indeed eligible for a $29 repair.
Although Apple won’t considers battery condition for the replacement offer. Apple may not replace your batteries if it finds other damages to the phone or interference of third-party components are installed on the phone.
If you are trying to get a free battery replacement your phone should still cover the warranty through an AppleCare warranty claim. The typical diagnosis by the Apple employee must be prerequisite. If the device diagnostics concludes that the battery was operating at less than 80% of its original capacity your battery will be replaced for free.
As announced in the company’s statement, the discounted battery replacements will be offered throughout 2018. The $29 battery replacements are available now through Apple’s retail and online support channels.
And if you too fall in the category of the customers who paid $79 to have their battery replaced before the company floated a revised replacement policy which came into effect on Saturday, December 30, could receive a refund from Apple upon request.
