If you’ve been putting off taking advantage of Apple’s $29 battery replacement program for older iPhones, you’ll need to get your butt in gear. The year-long program will end on December 31, 2018.
iPhone users who own an iPhone SE, 6, 6 Plus, 6s, 6s Plus, 7, 7 Plus, 8, 8 Plus, or X that aren’t happy with their device’s battery life can get the battery replaced for just $29. (The regular price is $79.)
Apple dropped the price of an iPhone battery replacement from $79 to $29 following the revelation that Apple slowed older devices with worn batteries. Apple publicly apologized for not being more transparent as to why they slow older iPhones, saying it slowed affected devices due to issues that could be caused by worn batteries in the devices.
The discounted battery replacement deal is available form now to December 31, 2018. Pricing can vary outside the United States. To have your iPhone 6 or newer’s battery replaced, schedule a Genius Bar appointment at your closest Apple Store, or contact Apple Support by Twitter, phone, email, or online chat. Battery replacements can also be made at select Apple Authorized Service Providers.
