Apple Now Charging More for Out-of-Warranty Battery Replacements on iPhones, iPads and Macs

Out-of-warranty battery replacements on iPhones, iPads, and Macs are more expensive starting today, with Apple increasing prices as planned. The higher prices apply to iPhone 13 and older models, Macs, and iPads that are out of warranty and that do not have AppleCare+.

Battery replacements for the ‌iPhone 13‌ models, for example, now cost $89, up $20 from the prior repair cost. The $89 price is applicable to the iPhone X through the ‌iPhone 13‌, with Apple charging $69 for repairs on the ‌iPhone‌ 8 and earlier. Out-of-warranty battery replacements for iPhone 14 models remain at $99, pricing Apple introduced back in September.

Pricing on the iPad is up by $20 for many models, including the fifth-generation and later 12.9-inch iPad Pro models, the third-generation 11-inch ‌iPad Pro‌ and earlier, 10.5 and 9.7-inch ‌iPad Pro‌ models, all iPad mini models, and all iPad Air models. It will now cost $119 for a battery replacement on these devices.

Battery replacements on the most recent ‌iPad Pro‌ models continue to be priced at $179 for the 12.9-inch ‌iPad Pro‌ and $149 for the 11-inch ‌iPad Pro‌.

Mac battery replacements have increased in price by $30 to $50, with all MacBook Air battery replacements now priced at $159 and all MacBook Pro battery replacements priced at $249.

Note that these prices are for out-of-warranty battery replacements on devices that do not have ‌AppleCare‌+ and where the one-year warranty has expired. If you have ‌AppleCare‌+, battery replacements are free if your battery has degraded below a certain level.

The pricing in the article also applies to the United States, but battery replacement costs are also up in other countries as well. Apple began warning customers of the increased prices in January, and estimates for replacement costs are available on Apple's Mac, iPad, and iPhone repair websites.

Not shocking, it's greedy Apple after all. What is shocking is that their most loyal consumers will defend this... you'll see them in this thread, book it.

Thankfully they will lower the prices back down once supply costs fall, inflation eases, and their quarterly profits soar. ?

Can someone here explain to me what happens when you get your battery replaced. I was told by an Apple employee that they don’t actually replace the battery, that they actually replace the device. That sounds weird to me but I’ve also seen it mentioned elsewhere. Does anyone know if that is true?
For reference, I have a 10.5 inch iPad Pro.
I just had the battery replaced on my 2020 SE. I brought my device in, they put it in diagnostic mode, did the tests, I signed the work order and came back in an hour. I received my same device exactly as it was when I brought it in but with 100% battery health. Under Settings -> General -> About, a new section appeared called Parts & Service History which lists the battery, the date it was repaired and that it is a 'Genuine Apple Part'.

You can buy coverage on a fixed-term plan or on a monthly plan that will automatically renew until cancelled.
Monthly 2 yrs

iPhone 14 Plus
$8.99 $179
iPhone 14, iPhone 13, iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 12
$7.99 $149
iPhone SE (3rd generation)
$3.99 $79"

If one takes care of their iPhone and don't have 'issues' within 2 yrs, then AppleCare+ isn't required or necessary.
Lots of people don't buy AppleCare for their iPhone while some people do.
The battery replacement cost then after 2 yrs is still relatively less expensive than buying AppleCare+.
