Last December, Apple acknowledged that it had been quietly “throttling,” or lowering, the performance of older iPhones. Apple stated the goal was to preserve battery life on those older phones and prevent them from shutting down unexpectedly. Apple Battery replacements previously had cost upwards of $129 and will revert to this pricing after the 31st December 2018 unless the program is extended.
So if your iPhone’s battery life is shorter than you’d expect, take advantage of the last opportunity to get your battery replaced at our Apple Authorised Service Provider location (mostly a same day repair) before the program expires and your left with a phone that does not last the day.
Before bringing your device in store for the battery replacement it is advised that you complete a backup through your iTunes or iCloud. Once in store our staff will perform a battery diagnostics test and advise you of the repair process.
We can be contacted on (03) 9742 3912 to check stock availability and estimated time for repair. We offer the Battery replacement service from Monday through Friday only.
Please be aware, only the following devices may be eligible under the above program: iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone SE. If you are experiencing poor battery life with any other model, we may still be able to assist, but would advise on costs based on our findings.
