Apple will be increasing service charges for battery replacements of out-of-warranty devices. Depending on the kind of device, the price can range from $20 to $50.

The change was spotted by users who pointed out that Apple quietly mentioned it on the repair pages.

The current out-of-warranty battery service fee will remain in effect until the end of February. The company says that the out-of-warranty battery service fee will be increased by $20 for all models prior to the release of the new phone.

The amount you will need to pay for battery replacement for a device that isn't covered by warranty will be shown here.

  • iPhone 13 and prior: $20 (total price: $89)
  • iPad Pro 12.9” (5th generation and prior), iPad Pro 11” (3rd generation and prior), iPad Pro 10.5”, iPad Pro 9.7”, iPad mini (6th generation and prior), and iPad Air (5th generation and prior): $20 (total price: $99 to $119)
  • All MacBook Air models: $30 (total price: $159)
  • All MacBook Pro models: $50 (total price: $249)

The battery replacement price for the iPhone 14 is more expensive than previous models.

Local price rises may be different. The UK and France will charge different prices for the same battery change.

Third-party repair services will not be affected by the service charge increase.

In April of last year, Apple opened up its self-service program for US-based iPhone users, which allowed them to get and replace parts on their own.

The price increase for battery replacement is not ideal, but it will still lease a new life to your device so you don't have to buy a new device.
