Apple Makes iPhone Battery Replacements Cheaper in the UK

Alongside iPhone 15 price drops in the United Kingdom compared to last year's iPhone 14 models, Apple has also reduced the cost of its iPhone Battery Servicing program for several earlier models.

The biggest savings can be found for ‌iPhone 14‌ models. Prior to Tuesday's iPhone 15 announcement, Apple charged £105 for ‌iPhone 14‌ battery replacements, whereas now it lists £95, or a £10 reduction.

New batteries for iPhone XR through iPhone 13 models are now £85 compared to £89 previously, and new batteries for iPhone SE through ‌iPhone‌ X models are now £65 instead of £69.

Apple's new battery replacement charges for all models offered through its ‌iPhone‌ Battery Servicing program are as follows:

  • ‌iPhone 14‌ models - £95
  • ‌iPhone 13‌ models - £85
  • ‌iPhone‌ 12 models - £85
  • ‌iPhone‌ 11 models - £85
  • ‌iPhone‌ XS models - £85
  • ‌iPhone‌ XR models - £85
  • ‌iPhone‌ X - £85
  • ‌iPhone‌ 8 - £65
  • ‌iPhone‌ 7 - £65
  • ‌iPhone SE‌ - £65

With the exception of the starting price of the iPhone 15 Pro Max, Apple on Tuesday made UK prices of the newly announced ‌iPhone 15 Pro‌ and ‌iPhone 15 Pro‌ Max models at least £100 cheaper across all configuration options than the equivalent ‌iPhone 14‌ Pro models when they were launched last year. Similar reductions were also reported across other European countries.

In addition, Apple cut the price of AirPods Max, from £549 down to £499, as well as updated second-generation AirPods Pro, from £249 down to £229.

In the US, the ‌iPhone 15 Pro‌ Max was the only device to see a price increase, rising $100 to $1,199 because of Apple's decision to drop its 128GB storage option and make 256GB the new minimum storage configuration. Apple increased prices more aggressively for the phones in some other markets, including Canada and India.

And just think only a few years ago they would refuse to replace your battery even if you offered to pay for it. Amazing what lawsuits change.

If they were serious about their environmental activism they'd adopt some real policies like user replaceable batteries and drop the prices for existing phones to either below cost or at cost. After all cross subsidising profits from one of the richest companies to have ever existed to reduce waste seems like an obvious thing to do.

I'm glad the replacements have come down though cause I'm holding onto my iPhone 12 mini as long as I get the latest iOS. I was excited about getting the iPhone 15 but then carried around my S22 ultra for a while and realised I hate the weight and size.

Also cheaper in many other parts of EUROPE

Just checked and iPhone 14 replacement is 10 EUR cheaper in Germany now. No difference on iPhone 12 for example though
The same with the price reductions MacRumors mentioned for the iPhone in the UK yesterday. I don't know why the rest of Europe doesn't exits? My comment about that was even removed as it "could lead to trolling" :D

It’s just exchange rate fluctuation, nothing more. Apple is certainly not as favourable when it comes to fluctuations as others are, e.g. Nvidia.
