Apple is increasing service charges for battery replacement of out-of-warranty iPhones, iPads, and MacBooks starting March 2023. The price increases range from $20 to $50 for various types of devices.
Reddit users noticed the change and pointed out that Apple had silently mentioned it on the repair pages for these devices. "Until the end of February 2023, the current out-of-warranty battery service fee will apply. "Effective March 1, 2023, the out-of-warranty battery service fee for all iPhone models prior to iPhone 14 will be increased by $20," the company states on the iPhone battery replacement and repair page.
