The price increases will reach 32% and will concern all iPhone models prior to 14. iPad and MacBook will also be affected
Bad news for owners iPhones, iPads and MacBooks. Apple in fact, it has decided to increase the price for replacing the original batteries, with price increases ranging from an extra 24 euros for smartphones to an extra 60 euros for laptops. Rates that obviously refer to interventions requested out of warranty.
The Cupertino company has not released any statement on the matter, but the news is reported in the support page on its website Apple. Let’s proceed in order.
The iPhone models affected by the price increases
“The current out-of-warranty battery service fee will continue until the end of February 2023. Starting March 1, 2023, the out-of-warranty battery service fee will increase by $24 for all previous iPhone models. to iPhone 14» reads the Apple website.
Therefore, the older iPhone models will be affected. Let’s take a practical example: replace the battery ad iPhone 11 directly with Apple it costs 75 euros today, while from 1 March 2023 99 euros will be needed. We checked in the appropriate drop-down menu on the support page and it is a valid rate until iPhone X.
Starting from iPhone 8 instead, and until iPhone SE first generation, the current cost of 55 euros will rise to 79 euros. Overall, an increase of 32%. In the event that your iPhone has autonomy problems, it will be advisable to hurry to replace the battery so as to avoid the new increased tariffs for the last time.
The situation for iPads and MacBooks
Analogous speech for iPads and MacBooks. As for the former, the Apple portal says that: «The current service fee for out of warranty batteries will apply until the end of February 2023. As of March 1, 2023, the service fee for out of warranty batteries will be increased by 40 euros for the following models : iPad Pro 12.9-inch (5th generation and earlier), iPad Pro 11-inch (3rd generation and earlier), iPad Pro 10.5-inch, iPad Pro 9.7-inch, iPad mini (6th generation and earlier models) and iPad Air (5th generation and earlier models).
So let’s imagine that we want to replace the battery iPad Air with M1 processor. Today it costs 108.99 euros, from March 1st it will cost 148.99 euros. An important figure.
Different digits for i Macbooks: «The current out-of-warranty battery service fee will apply until the end of February 2023. Starting March 1, 2023, the out-of-warranty battery service fee will increase by $36 for all MacBook models Air and 60 euros for all MacBook and MacBook Pro models. This means that the current 229 euros needed for the MacBook Pro 14 from 2021 will become 289 euros. Again, so hurry up.
The reasons for these increases can be many. It certainly weighs the trend of inflation, but probably also the difficulty in sourcing the components. Just think how, at the beginning of December, the availability of iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max was 3 or 4 weeks from the time of purchase at the Apple Store (today it is down to 1 or 2 weeks). A complex situation therefore, which is also affecting the big names in the tech sector.
