What You Need to Know About Replacing Your iPhone Battery

If you have an old phone, you might have to consider replacing the batteries for a better gaming experience. If you have an iPhone 13 or an older model and want to replace the battery, you should plan to do so before the end of February, before Apple adds $20 to the price of replacing a battery.

Why you need to replace your iPhone battery

The Apple A17 chip will likely be made with the 3nm process from Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC). It seems that Apple is putting more effort into making the chip have a longer battery life and less effort into making it perform better. 

The good news is that AppleCare+ members can get their iPhone batteries replaced for free if they hold less than 80% of their original capacity, according to the company’s source. 

You might be asking why you need a better and stronger battery? As technology advances, most people like to use mobile phones for nearly everything, from business to playing games at casino utan svensk licens, and from the battery straight depends how long they can commit. 

What does Apple support say

Apple’s support page now says that battery replacement costs for all iPhone models 13 or older that are no longer under warranty will go up by $20. From March 1, the new prices will be in place.

Apple currently charges $69 to replace the battery in an iPhone 13, 12, 11, or X that is no longer under warranty. The iPhone SE, iPhone 8, and other older models, on the other hand, cost $49. But Apple already charges $99 to replace the battery on iPhone 14 series models.

In related news, the company is thought to be focusing on making its next iPhone 15 series phones have better battery life. A recent report said that the new line of smartphones will have an Apple A17 chip, which could be up to 35% more energy efficient than the current A16 Bionic chip.

The A16 Bionic SoC is only in the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. In the same way, the Apple A17 chip is only expected to be in the iPhone 15 Pro models. The A16 Bionic chip is expected to be in the other models.

New tech introduced in the latest iPhone series

Apple didn’t yet provide information for customers on how much power its phones’ batteries have. A previous report said that the iPhone 14’s battery is 3,279mAh and that the iPhone 14 Plus’s battery is 4,325mAh. On the other hand, the iPhone 14 Pro has a battery with 3,200mAh, while the iPhone 14 Pro Max has a battery with 4,323mAh.

Apple could also put Sony’s advanced image sensor in the iPhone 15 phones. This sensor should have twice as much saturation signal in each pixel as a regular sensor. It might also be able to take in more light, which would make images less overexposed or underexposed.

Apple is introducing new technology in the recent series of iPhones which will focus more on the phone’s battery life than power. With such intricate and high tech improvements, the overall prices of iPhones are set to rise again. 

However, iPhone 14 pro max and the latest iPhone 15’s prices will be discounted for a while after it’s grand launch as stated by a spokesperson from the company.
