The step of monitoring the health of the iPhone battery is useful in determining the appropriate time to replace it, and at these specific times all iPhone users want to check the health of the battery after Apple announced that it would increase the replacement rates for previous iPhone 14 iPhone phone batteries, starting in March.

The battery replacement service charge for the iPhone 14 series after the end of the warranty period is $99. The battery price change effective March 1 includes an increase in the battery replacement cost for all older iPhone models by $20. This means that the cost of battery replacement in iPhone 13 to iPhone X models will go up to $89 instead of $69, and iPhone SE, iPhone 8 and earlier models to $69 instead of $49 .

If you replace your iPhone every year or two with a newer model, you shouldn’t have any battery problems. But for those who have iPhones that are two years old or older, they may experience battery issues due to the many charging cycles the battery has been subjected to.

If you’re experiencing battery issues such as charging speed dropping rapidly or your phone turning off suddenly and repeatedly, you can check the health of your iPhone’s battery in the settings application built into your phone to determine the most appropriate time to the replacement It.

To check the battery status of your iPhone, open the Settings app, then follow these steps:

Scroll down and tap on the Battery option.

Click on the Battery Health and Recharge option.

The current battery capacity will appear at the top next to the (Maximum Capacity) option.

When should the iPhone battery be replaced?

In the section (Battery status and charging), you will see a warning if your battery is deteriorating and if this is causing problems such as sudden shutdown or poor phone performance.

iPhone batteries are designed to retain up to 80% of their original capacity after 500 full charge cycles when operating under normal conditions. And when your iPhone’s battery capacity drops below 80 percent of its original capacity, a feature called (performance management) kicks in automatically to help prevent unexpected shutdowns.

If you see an alert that the battery health is deteriorating on your phone and you begin to notice that your phone’s performance is decreasing, go to the Apple Store or contact Apple Support to obtain an Apple-approved replacement battery.
