Apple has reduced the price of battery replacements for iPhone 6 and newer to 29, down from 79, as part of its apology over lack of communication about power management changes it made starting in iOS 10. 21. The discount is effective immediately and available until the end of 2018. IPhone users in most countries can initiate the Battery Replacement process online by scheduling an appointment with Genius Bar at the Apple Store. Reduced prices are also available at some third-party retailers and Repair shops, as long as they are designated as official Apple authorized Service Provider. After this article was publish, MacRumors received a tip claiming Apple has reduced the price it charges Apple Authorized Service Providers for iPhone batteries to 5, down from 55, but some Repair shops are still charging more than 29 for replacements to maintain reasonable profit margins for time and labor. To get start, head to Contact Apple Support page, click on See Your Products, and sign in to your Apple ID account. Next, select iPhone to be Service, select Battery, Power, and Charging, and finally select Battery Replacement. Next, select Bring in for Repair and specify your location and carrier. List will appear with nearby Apple Stores and Apple Authorized Service Providers. To schedule an appointment, click on Store and choose the available 15-minute time slot, which reflects the time you are expected to arrive by. It's worth noting that many Apple Stores allow walk-in customers to wait for a Genius Bar appointment on the spot, but only if the queue is short enough, so booking a reservation in advance is recommend. When you arrive at the Apple Store, find an employee holding an iPad, who should be able to check you into Your Genius Bar appointment. If you choose Service Provider instead, ask staff member for help. If the Apple Store or Apple Authorized Service Provider has replacement batteries in stock, process should be complete within hours, allowing you to walk out with your iPhone on the same day. An Invoice will be provided for 29 fee, plus any local taxes, to be paid upon completion of Replacement. Apple in an internal document obtained by MacRumors say customers are entitled to 29 Battery Replacement regardless of diagnostic result, and it doesn't matter if the iPhone is no longer covered by Apple's one-year limited warranty or extended AppleCare + plan to qualify for price reduction. The internal document also states that customers may be eligible for a refund if they replace their iPhone Battery for a higher price. We've heard these requests are handled exclusively by Apple Support, and only for replacements completed on or after December 14 2017. Your mileage may vary. Be advised that Apple says initial supplies of replacement batteries for some iPhone models may be limit, and we've heard that some of its Stores and Repair shops are currently out of stock.

How Your Car Battery Works

Your car battery may be small, but the power it provides is huge. When your battery is dead, your car is dead. You may know that your car battery provides a jolt of electricity required to power all of the car's electrical components, but it actually does so much more! That little tiny box performs two essential functions: battery gets your car going: battery delivers voltage to the starter by converting chemical energy into electrical energy. This gives your car the power it needs to start. T he battery keeps things going: battery delivers just the right amount of energy to kick things off under the hood, but it also provides a steady stream of voltage to keep your engine running throughout your drive. If youre ready to dig a little deeper into how your car battery works and why it is so awesome, read on. Your battery is closely tied to cars ' starting and charging systems. They all work in unison to convert chemical energy into mechanical energy, and then back again. How does it all tie together? Well, starter uses mechanical energy to crank the engine. Once the engine is running, whole system becomes somewhat cyclical. Engine rotation drives an alternator, forcing energy into the battery where it is stored as chemical energy. This chemical energy is converted back into electrical energy to feed the starter and your cars various accessories. Cycle continues as engines mechanical energy drive alternator and recharge battery.


Signs of Car Battery Problems

Batteries are so reliable and so simple that drivers have a tendency to forget they're even there until it's too late. If you pay attention to your car's battery and conduct a few regular tests and observations, you'll reduce your risk of being stranded on the road. Batteries are relatively inexpensive, considering the amount of work they perform on a regular basis. The most obvious sign of battery problem is dead battery. However, because the battery is part of a larger system that connects to other parts of the car, dead battery may indicate a deeper problem than simply no juice. If something else is going wrong in electrical system, say, weak alternator working battery may be providing less electricity than it should. The best way to test battery is with electronic testers available at most auto parts stores. You or an automotive technician hook tester to the battery in your car, and it will take a snapshot of your battery's condition and indicate whether it needs to be replace. There are a range of battery testers available of different types and different price points. Some clip to battery or its terminals to provide readout, while some plug into your car's cigarette lighter to measure charge. If you're popping car's hood to clip tester to the battery, consider wearing gloves and goggles to protect your hands and face from battery acid or corrosion. This check should be part of routine vehicle maintenance and do every time you have oil change. The battery itself also provides other clues to whether it's on its way out. First is its age. If the battery is older than three or four years, start expecting problems. Second, take a look at your driving habits. Remember, short trips and long periods of inactivity will zap the battery's life. Third, look at the battery itself. Corrosion or stains mean it could have leak. If your battery is covered in case or insulating sleeve, remove it every once in a while to see what's going on underneath. Look for buildup around terminals as well. You can clean buildup off with baking soda and water. Just remember to use gloves and safety glasses while working. The electrolytic solution is partially sulfuric acid, which is not gentle on skin. Finally, smell the battery, paying attention to rotten egg odors or the smell of battery overheating.

The smart battery case

If the only issue with your iPhone battery is capacity, and not throttling, you might want to consider simply getting something like a Smart Battery Case to tide you over to your next new phone instead of replacing it. It is actually more expensive than getting a battery replaced by Apple, especially since the iPhone throttling saga has seen Apple reducing their asking price for procedure. However, for people who do have backup phone laying around, Battery Case could be the way to go. It is also worth considering that cases capacity is added to your remaining battery capacity, which may add up to more battery power than fresh internal battery would have.

Consider a trade-in

If you live online, you might be compelled to kickstart process on Apple website and jump right into trading older iPhone for monetary value before buying a newer one. We get it, and so does Apple, which has a process you can initiate online. Essentially, you fill out a form, send in your phone, and Apple or its partners will check through your phone, working out whether it is valid for trade, and how much money youll get for it. Your trade-in value may change depending on whether you package your chargers and cables with it, so the point here is to obviously keep whatever youre trading in as best condition as possible. The time it takes to trade phones through the online process can take anywhere between 5 and 14 days, so know that if you go this route, youre basically going without that gadget for the entire time. If that means youre sending in your only iPhone, you may want to use something else.


What if my iPhone is damaged?

Not every iPhone repairer is an official one, and generally the cost and choice of components sets them apart. You may not realise it, but Apple doesnt exactly look too kindly on repairers that it does authorise, so while you might know a great screen repair company who does it for a lower price than Apple, it may not be authorise or approved by the maker of the iPhone. For the most part, this wo affect you in your day to day. Life Once the iPhone is repair, youll be happy, and will be running your finger over a sheet of broken glass. That kind of point. But if you return iPhone with parts that haven't been approved by Apple, your iPhone might be deemed invalid by the trade-in team, and may even incur cost to get your iPhone back. So what do you do: what are your options if youve repaired your iPhone outside of Apple, and yet still want to trade it in for a new one?

Before You Go

With any service appointment, especially one that involves cracking open your phone, it is important to back up your data before leaving home so that you can restore your device if anything goes wrong. You can do this using iCloud or iTunes. Apple has step-by-step instructions for both options online. The first 5GB of online storage is free; above that level, prices start at 99 cents per month for up to 50GB. One more thing worth considering: If your phone has cracked screen or other wear-AND-tear damage, Apple says that it may have to be repaired to make way for battery replacement. That may cost you extra time and money.

Is It Worth It?

Absolutely, says Richard Fisco, Consumer Reports head of smartphone testing. Anyone with an iPhone that has seen some use will probably notice a difference in performance in terms of both its battery life and its processor speed. How much? That depends on how worn out your current battery is. If you buy an iPhone 6 when it first comes out and youre heavy user, youre probably lucky to get halfway through your day without charging it, Fisco say. In that case, new battery will buy you a few more hours per charge. If you own an iPhone 8, benefit is going to be much less apparent. And that just refers to battery life. Remember, Apple dropped price on battery replacements after consumers complained that their older phones were working more slowly. The new battery should help restore faster performance, Apple say.

Complicate issues are best leave to pros at your local shop, but don't rush to the most dire conclusion just yet. When it comes to diagnosing cars, best advice is to keep it simple. In this case, that means starting with the battery. Usually, battery will die slowly and provide some advance notice. There are exceptions, of course, such as when internal failure occurs as result of bad cell. When that happen, you're likely not to have any warning signs and will find your car or truck in need of jump every time you start it up. But for the majority of us, when our car batteries die-as they certainly will at some point-one or more of the following symptoms are usually present.


How Long Does a Car Battery Last?

Every battery is going to be little bit different and the lifespan of your battery really depends on how you drive your car. If you're kind of person that has a lot of extra components attached to their vehicle that run on electricity, or you do a lot of intense cross-country driving and really push your car, then you may find your battery wears out a little sooner than the average one. That say, when you have a brand-new car battery, you can expect that it's going to last you about 3 years to 5 years. That's significant range to be sure, but as we say, it depends on the battery itself and how you drive your vehicle.
