iPhone Battery Replacement: Top Questions

If ever you encountered some nasty problems regarding your iPhone’s battery life, your first thought was to replace it with a new one. Here’s a few thoughts.

How long does an iPhone battery last before it needs to be replaced?

A quick answer to that is 2 years. However, if you want it changed after a year, you can.

An iPhone battery will work consistently for at least 2 years of regular use. By that time, 20% of its 100% capacity will have been gone. This will be a noticeable difference so you may notice that your iPhone needs to be recharged more often.

Can Apple replace my battery?

Absolutely, yes. You can also have it replaced by third party repair centers if you are out of Apple Care.

According to Apple’s rules regarding battery replacements:

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 Apple Care+, we’ll replace your battery at no charge if it retains less than 80 percent of its original capacity.

  • If your iPhone has another power issue, we’ll give you the repair price after we determine the cause.

How much does it cost to have Apple replace a battery?

It’s $79 jut for the service fee.

If your iPhone needs battery replacement and it’s not covered with Apple Care, the service fee is $79. That’s according to the official Apple website.

How long does it take the Apple store to replace a battery?

It would depend how far the physical service center is from your location. There’s no fixed time but only what the Apple Store is going to give you.

A good alternative if you are out of Apple Care anyway is to have it fixed by a third party repair centre. You can wait while it’s getting swapped out. That is the case on some shops, some would allot a day to complete the repairs.

Can a battery in a iPhone 5 be replaced?

Yes. Although it is possible, please don’t attempt to do it without proper tools and/or skills.

Can you get a replacement battery for iPhone 6s?
