APPLE has reduced the cost of replacing iPhone batteries for millions of customers in the UK as part of its internal maintenance program.
Owners of 10 different models will benefit from the price cut, which was quickly rolled out following Apple’s iPhone 15 announcement.
The biggest savings can be found on the iPhone 14 models.
Before the iPhone 15 was introduced, the cost of replacing the battery on an iPhone 14 was £105.
However, the price has since dropped to £95 – a £10 reduction.
However, not all battery replacement prices have been reduced so much.
Check out the list below to see how much you can save on your next battery change:
- iPhone 14 models – £95

You can check in your iPhone settings whether an exchange is worth it.
Apple only increased the price of this service six months ago and has already started reducing the price again.
From March 1, Apple increased the price of an iPhone battery replacement by £20 in the UK and an additional $20 in the US for millions of handsets.
Replacing an iPhone 13, iPhone 12, iPhone 11 or iPhone X battery used to cost you £89 / $89.
But the technology giant has since scaled back this price increase somewhat.
Check your iPhone’s battery
Your iPhone battery’s performance will naturally decrease over time.
When you buy a new iPhone, it is assumed that the battery is 100 percent charged.
However, this percentage decreases as you discharge and recharge the device.
According to Apple, after 500 charging “cycles” – or about two years – you would expect around 80 percent.
This means that with a full iPhone charge you get 20 percent less life than when it was freshly unpacked.
To check your iPhone’s battery health, follow these steps:
Go in Settings > battery > Battery status and charging.
Then look under “Maximum Capacity” to see what your battery power percentage is.
“This is a measure of battery capacity compared to when it was new,” explains Apple.
“Lower capacity can result in shorter usage time between charges.”
In general, it is recommended to consider changing the battery if the value is below 80 percent.
