Apple’s $29 iPhone Battery Replacement Deal Now Available in the US

Apple today announced it is making its reduced $29 (or around Php1,400) battery replacements for iPhone 6 and all newer models available immediately.

The company normally charges $79 or almost Php4,000 for out-of-warranty iPhone battery replacements, but it reduced the price by $50 following a controversy involving slowing down iPhones with old batteries to prevent sudden shutdowns. Apple initially will offer the $29 cheaper battery replacements in late January, but it has changed that timeframe from its letter to customers and has confirmed immediate availability in the US.

Apple is reducing the price of an out-of-warranty iPhone battery replacement by $50 — from $79 to $29 — for anyone with an iPhone 6 or later whose battery needs to be replaced, available worldwide through December 2018. Details will be provided soon on apple.com.

We’ve yet to confirm if local repair centers are following suit. More as we get it.

    Just came from PowerMac in SM North. Nope they have not been informed yet about the price change. They charge P4100 for the battery of an Iphone 6 plus with a P1000 charge for diagnostics. I asked if I could do away with the diagnostics and just have the battery installed but no go.

    By the way, there’ s been no news on whether Apple has been doing the same slowdown with the Ipad. My experience with the iPad Air is that they have been doing the same shenanigans as well. My iPad has slowed to a crawl and I’ve still got a ton of memory available. They should drop the battery prices for the iPads as well.

      Yes, and we have updated the article to reflect that we have yet to wait for confirmation from local authorized distributors for the green light on the discounted replacement prices here. Thank you for the additional information, MontyWest!
