How (and Why) to Replace the IPhone Battery
Do you have an iPhone 6 or 6s? You are most likely dealing with a slightly slower smartphone due to the fact that Apple said it slows down iOS devices hit by low batteries . The company has since announced that it will offer battery replacements for the iPhone 6 and later. But regardless of whether you are the victim of power management glitches, you should still replace the battery.
$ 29 for one year only
Apple’s battery replacement program is not new. You could always replace the iPhone battery, although you had to do it at the Apple Store (or mail it) and pay $ 79. Apple’s recent $ 50 rebate makes battery swaps more manageable, but only for one year. If you’re starting from scratch in 2018, why not start with a fresh battery?
This $ 29 replacement can extend the life of your iPhone by another year or two, saving you the hassle of buying a new phone because your current one is slow. It will also increase the device’s resale value: customers are more likely to buy a used iPhone with a newer battery than the original but outdated battery.
Do it yourself
Ambitious (or impatient) iOS owners may want to go the DIY route and replace it themselves. If so, they can go to repair company iFixit , which has since cut their spare iPhone batteries to $ 29 or less, which is in line with Apple’s own prices. Of course, you will have to make the replacement yourself, and this will cost you your warranty. If you’re still ready to plunge into this asshole, get ready to buy a new phone if you fry something. Either way , it might be time to get one given that you have a bad battery.
