Iphone Battery Replacement

Apple has created an iPhone battery replacement program especially for iphone 5 after it released a statement saying that it had discovered a “very small percentage” of units “may suddenly experience shorter battery life or need to be charged more frequently. iPhone 5 is experiencing these symptoms and if the following eligibility requirements are met, Apple will replace the iPhone 5 battery, free of charge.

Eligibility

If your iPhone is in working order and exhibits the symptoms noted above, the owner can use the serial number checker below to see if it is eligible for this program.

Replacement process

The owner can choose any one of the service options below to have your battery replaced. Your iPhone will be examined prior to any service to verify that it is eligible for this program and in working order.

1) Apple Authorized Service Provider

2) Apple Retail Store

3) Apple Technical Support

To prepare your iPhone 5 for the battery replacement process, please follow the steps below:

1) Back up the data to iTunes or iCloud

2) Turn off Find my iPhone

3) Erase data and settings in Settings > General > Reset > Erase all Content and Settings

However, If your iPhone 5 has any damage such as a cracked screen which impairs the replacement of the battery, that issue will need to be resolved prior to the battery replacement. Somertimes , there may be a cost associated with the repair. In such case, you may have to consider if it is more economical to buy the battery online and get it repaired in some local service shops.

Further, Apple may restrict or limit repair to the original country of purchase. So, if you purchase your iphone in the other countries, you may be left with no other options and have to get the iphone battery replacement in some local service shops which may not be the authorized service provider. If you believe your iPhone 5 was affected by this issue, and you paid to replace your battery, you can contact Apple to check if you are eligible for refund. Please note that your standard warranty program may get void if the iphone is repaired by those non authorized apple service providers.

Apple famously engineers iPhones without a battery door, so you can't easily swap in a new power pack. However, you can indeed replace your iPhone's battery yourself, and it's cheaper and easier than you might think.

In fact, an old battery in a15-month-old iPhone will definitely show signs of charge wear. Total cost may be around USD $8 and total time for replacement may be 20 minutes.

To find a replacement battery, please search Addimart for "iPhone replacement battery." We are offering that product, along with a mini-tool kit, ranging from USD $8-$10.

Next you can go search in Youtube for "replace iPhone 4S battery," and watched a couple how-to videos before even picking up a screwdriver. I wanted t procedure as well as I could before getting started.

Finally, armed with a desktop magnifier (an essential tool for someone with aging eyes), the two pentalobe screws from the bottom of my iPhone can be removed, with the backplate slid off. After then, the two screws holding down the battery connector can be removed. From there it was a simple matter to pry out the old battery, drop in the new one, and put everything back together.

As an alternative, You could always hire a k local service provider to install a new battery for you, but that usually involves shipping your iPhone, waiting at least a few days to get it back, and paying around $40. For as little as 8 bucks, you can do the job yourself without letting your phone out of your sight
