- Apple reduces iPhone battery replacement from $79 to $29 until December 2018.
- A future iOS software update will have battery health information and even an option to turn off the throttling.
With that in mind, Power Mac Center released their statement on how they’ll handle them here in the Philippines. Here is what they’ll basically do:
iPhone Battery Replacement Details
- Devices must undergo diagnosis to check the battery condition and other internal and external physical/accidental damage or unauthorized modification that may or may not be visible to the naked eye.
- If such issues are found, the iPhone will be ineligible for the battery replacement.
- If, during the diagnosis, we also find other hardware issues, our Apple Certified Engineer will recommend a part/unit replacement accordingly.
- Customers may or may not proceed with the recommendation, but if they decide to pull out, they have to settle the diagnostic fee if the unit is out or void of warranty. The battery replacement fee is Php1,500 for eligible units out of warranty, inclusive of labor. This price may change due to importation costs and without prior notice.
Power Mac Center also mentioned that since they announced this two weeks ago, 150 satisfied customers took advantage of the iPhone battery replacement. For me, this is a great opportunity for owners of iPhone 6 or later to get a fresh new battery. I know that Apple may have fumbled in handling this issue but at least they’re taking steps to regain the customers’ trust again.
I suggest that people take advantage of this. Replacing your iPhone battery assures you of the best possible performance out of your old phone. With Apple Authorized Service Providers like Power Mac Center, you are sure to get the Apple experience here in the Philippines.
