This will make less people change their batteries and push more people towards buying new phones.

Great for Apple, bad for the environment. So much for their “we care about the planet” bs.

In the EU (I've checked Italy, France and Germany) the current price is 75€, they'll increase it by 24€.

$106 to get a battery replaced :)
Remember when Apple was all about great customer experience? It is more and more about "how can we milk our customers even more". Sad. I hope people start reacting with closed wallets soon. I did! Still rocking my "old" 12 Pro Max

This will just push people to those inauthentic "phone repair" stores again ...

How about Apple sell us the battery and let us do it ourselves without needing to call to confirm the battery they sent is genuine….

Seriously, this feels they are really really on checking out every possible way to squeeze out every penny in every way.

UPDATE: As the article has been updated. Told you so, they even probably considered this for the Airtags as well.

i'm actually surprised that the EU hadn't come up with a resolution yet that all portable electronic devices are required to have EASILY replaceable batteries that won't require the user to do more than just move a slider to unlatch the battery, or remove 4 screws at worst without having to disassemble the whole unit in delicate ways
