Apple has announced that it is increasing the cost of out-of-warranty iPhone battery replacements for all models older than the iPhone 14 later this year.
"The current out-of-warranty battery service fee will apply until the end of February 2023. Effective March 1, 2023, the out-of-warranty battery service fee will be increased by $20 for all iPhone models prior to iPhone 14," according to the company's support page.
Currently, Apple charges $69 for a battery replacement on most iPhone models, according to an estimation calculator on the company's website.
Customers who do not have AppleCare or AppleCare+ plan for their devices will be affected by the price increase.
