Posted 21st Aug

This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

This is for those that need a cheap replacement that perhaps picked up a used unit or has an old one that's out of warranty or not under Applecare (As they get free replacements) Reviews are good, with the mass majority being at Trustpilot - HERE

Via Apple directly prices are £45-65 if you're out of warranty or Applecare
Which probably wouldn't be worth it if you've got one of the older handsets.

To get your replacement, it's NOT an online send service, you have to go into one of their 26 stores and present your voucher.


List of pricing on various models:

  • iPhone SE battery replacement £15
  • iPhone 6 or 6S battery replacement £15
  • iPhone 6 or 6S Plus battery replacement £22.50
  • iPhone 7 or 7 plus battery replacement £22.50
  • iPhone 8 or 8 Plus battery replacement £30
  • iPhone X battery replacement £30

Check for a local store - HERE

I'm curious how the recent Apple software block thing affects business like this.
Are they officially recognised by Apple as a repair shop?
Not sure why cold, recent Apple software update withstanding. If you have an old iPhone (6S for example), you can extend its life for £15 with the only downside being you (potentially) may not see the battery stats anymore. Does not seem like a major loss

From the article you linked:
"According to their report, the software lock appears to have been introduced to iPhone XR, iPhone XS, and iPhone XS Max models running the latest iOS 12 version or the iOS 13 beta."

This post is for upto X?
Not a bad price - heat! If you are into DIY you can get a SoundRope IPhone 5 Replacement Battery (1440mAh) | Comes with required tools for installation | (Not for 5s or 5c) | with a 24 Month Warranty for £6.99.

The 5S/C is just under a tenner.

I'm not technically minded but replaced an iPhone 6 battery and screen using parts off eBay for around 15 quid. There are good tutorial videos on YouTube. Both the parts were decent quality too. I wasn't confident going in but just took my time and got there in the end. Gave the thing a new lease of life!
Not sure too why this is cold, looks good OP

It will cold due to the recent announcement by apple stating throttling unofficial iPhone batteries be due to overheating and all the people complaining there iPhones have exploded then don’t say they had a unofficial battery fitted the week before
They have just fixed the screen on my sons Mac book pro ... great job and £160 cheaper than Apple

From what I heard from Louis Rossmann, even if you took out an official battery from a working iPhone it would still be flagged.
It seems you need special software to acknowledge that a new battery has been installed.
Can't understand no one brought Apple to task on anti-competitive regulation. Is not only batteries that are flagged but switches too.

Don't see any other manufacturers doing the same.

Heated as bare batteries alone are not much cheaper than this.

How apple have taken things backwards.....

10 years ago, I went and bought a replacement battery and popped it in.

Now they have made phones with them built in, and buy an unofficial battery and they brick your phone on the next ios update...
Shameful!

Probably hard(er) to make a water resistant phone that has a removable battery and the price of these replacements is hardly breaking the bank. Cheaper than replacing the whole phone for the clumsy people that drop them in toilets.
If mine were were below an acceptable level I’d definitely get this deal.

Just replaced the battery on mine today. Took about 30 mins. No red flags or "service" messages at all and now have 100% battery health
This actually seems like a good deal for older iphones, is the temp just purely apple hate?
