After being pressured by the Foundation for Consumer and Taxpayer Rights, Apple finally released details about iPhone’s battery replacement procedure, and to some people it is clear why the company kept a secret in the first place.
iPhone’s battery, which is soldered on inside the device, will cost $79 to replace, plus $6.95 for shipping. The iPhone battery replacement process will take 3 days.
Will Apple give you a loaner iPhone while you wait the 3 days? Of course… for an additional $29. That’s over $100 just to change your iPhone’s battery, which is said to last only 400 charges.
Referring to consumer outrage over the iPhone’s battery replacement cost, iPhone reviewer Walt Mossberg said of Apple: “Some of them might be waking up now, wondering who they got in bed with.”
