What is the cost of iPhone battery replacement?

We’ve outlined typical prices of getting your iPhone battery replaced in a typical local phone shop compared to an Apple store. Prices do change as new models come out, however these prices are correct as of 2020. On older iPhones you may notice your battery draining faster once you update the IOS software. That’s becuase newer updates require more power from the battery. Also the older your iPhone is the more likely it is to need a batter replacement, becuase it will have used more battery cycles. If you have Apple care then the battery replacement is free.

How to check iPhone battery health

On your iPhone go into Settings > Battery > Battery Health and look for the Maximum Capacity. Click the video to see my iPhone’s battery health. As you can see my battery health is 87%. This number will range from 1-100% and this is basically your batteries health. If it’s below 80%, it’s time for a new battery. If it’s between 80-90% it’s ok but it’s not optimal and it’s a matter of time before you start getting annoyed with your battery life. The video also shows you 2 other settings to check. These are “Optimised Battery Charging” and “Low Power Mode” these should be ON at all times to squeeze the most life from your iPhone battery.
