The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are still excellent mobile phones despite not being up to date, however it is already common for some materials such as the battery to wear out over the years. If you’re already experiencing battery problems with your iPhone 7, you’ll want to know how much it costs to repair, or in this case, replace it.
Apple Battery Prices
We always recommend that you take your iPhone to an Apple Retail Store or authorized service center for repair. There are unauthorized alternatives where the prices can be much lower, but not only could it cause problems on the startup device because they are unauthorized parts, but also in the long run you may find that the wear and tear is much higher than on the originals.
Regardless of whether it’s an iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus, you’ll need to pay 55 euros at Apple if you want a battery replacement. To this price you will have to add 12,10 euros of shipping costs in case you cannot go to a physical store and they have to pick it up at your home and then send it back to you.
There are circumstances in which this repair may be free, such as having additional Apple Care or Apple Care+ insurance. This type of insurance provides the benefit of finding cheaper repairs in many cases and for batteries it is done at no cost. You won’t even be charged the ?12.10 shipping fee because it’s covered by this warranty, too.
Estimated waiting time
Usually this is a question that even the company itself does not usually answer, because it depends largely on the volume of repairs that the Apple Store has at the time. Generally, if you go in person, you can have your iPhone ready the same day, 2 or 3 hours after you leave it at the technical service.
The waiting time will increase if you are going to send it by courier instead of going to the store. In that case, not only will you be dependent on the volume of work of the technical service, but you will also have to add to it the time it takes to send the package with your device to Apple and the time it takes to get it back once it is repaired. It is usually sent by express parcel, but if there is a holiday in between or your home is in the Canary or Balearic Islands, it could increase.
Can you change the battery yourself?
Normally, it is not advisable to repair any component of an iPhone if you do not have the knowledge to do so. In addition to the fact that you could damage a component if you do so as an inexperienced person, you should know that any warranty with Apple is lost if the device is detected as having been opened. Cupertino’s company, like many others, has tools to know whether or not a device has been tampered with once they have it in service.
However, if you think you have the knowledge to do so and you decide to do it, there are guides that teach you how to repair these batteries and they can be cheaper. But again you should bear in mind that if the parts are not original you could have a problem for the proper functioning of the device.
