3 Fixes to deal iPhone Battery Problems
When you are about to replace the iPhone’s battery, you can go for two options, that is do it by yourself or hire someone else to fix it.
The following 3 steps can help you to change your battery.
1) Apple will bear the cost of a new battery if the phone is under warranty. A new iPhone is only under warranty for a year after the purchasing date. However, you can extend that period by paying for an AppleCare plan. Other than that if your phone is not in warranty, then you will have to pay $79 for a replacement from Apple. You can mail your phone to an Apple repair center or drop it off at an authorized Apple service store. It will take 3 to 5 days.
2) If you don’t want to wait for 3 or 5 days, then you can avail a third-party service, such as iCracked or your nearest phone repair shop. A battery fix from a third-party company can cost $50 to $80. But letting companies other than Apple access your iPhone, Apple will no longer repair your phone free of charge under its warranty.
3) The third option is that you can replace the iPhone’s battery yourself, if you are fine with it. What you have to do, you have to purchase a battery replacement kit online. The kits will cost you round about $10. Videos on YouTube will guide you to replace the battery.
