Apple has announced an increase in service charges for battery replacement of out-of-warranty iPhones, iPads, and MacBooks beginning from March.
Apple made this public, in a statement, on its repair pages that the price rise is said to range from $20 to $50 depending on the kind of device.
The statement read, “The current out-of-warranty battery service fee will apply until the end of February 2023. Effective March 1, 2023, the out-of-warranty battery service fee will be increased by $20 for all iPhone models prior to iPhone 14.”
Below is a quick breakdown of the extra amount required for battery replacement for a device that’s not covered by warranty starting in March:
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)
This change is global and local price rises may vary. Although, the service charge increase won’t affect AppleCare or AppleCare+ subscribers or folks who rely on third-party repair services.
