Apple is offering a $50 credit to customers who paid for an out-of-warranty battery replacement for their iPhone 6 or later handset. The replacement must have taken place between January1, 2017 to December 31, 2017.
iPhone Out-Of-Warranty Battery Replacement Credit
Apple is offering a $50 credit to customers who paid for an out-of-warranty battery replacement for iPhone 6 or later devices between January 1, 2017 and December 28, 2017. Eligible battery replacements were completed at an Apple authorized service location — Apple Store, Apple Repair Center, or an Apple Authorized Service Provider.
The credit will be provided as an electronic funds transfer or a credit on the credit card used to pay for the battery replacement service.
Eligible customers will be contacted by Apple via email between May 23, 2018 and July 27, 2018 with instructions on how to obtain the credit.
If you have not received an email from Apple by August 1, 2018, but believe you are eligible for a credit based on the terms above, please contact Apple by December 31, 2018. Note that proof of service at an Apple authorized service location may be required.
In-warranty iPhone battery replacements are not eligible for this credit.
On December 28, 2017, Apple announced a price reduction on the out-of-warranty battery replacement price for iPhone 6 or later devices, effective through the end of 2018.
The announcement is related to Apple’s $29 iPhone battery replacement program, which kicked off in December of 2017. The program was in response to customers who potentially had their device’s performance throttled on devices that contained a degraded battery.
