Apple updates iPhone battery replacement prices for 2019

It was just about a year ago when it was reported that Apple was intentionally throttling the performance of its older iPhones. Shortly after the report, the company would admit to its doings and would offer a mea culpa in the form of a discounted battery replacement program. Today, Apple has updated its battery replacement prices, which will go into effect starting next year.

As you can see from the image at the top of the article, Apple will only be honoring the special discounted rate of $29 until the end of the year. Once that date passes, folks can expect to pay $49 to have their battery in their phone replaced, which is still quite a bit less than the previous retail price of $79. The $49 price point only applies to the following models:

  • iPhone SE
  • iPhone 6
  • iPhone 6 Plus
  • iPhone 6s
  • iPhone 6s Plus
  • iPhone 7
  • iPhone 7 Plus
  • iPhone 8
  • iPhone 8 Plus

Those with an iPhone X will be expected to pay $69. Apple's newly announced models are also on the list, and folks can also expect to pay $69 for a replacement battery. So, if your phone qualifies for a battery replacement at the discounted rate, be sure to take advantage of it prior to the new year.
