Users who want to put a new battery in the smartwatch will have to pay $99.
Earlier this year, Apple increased the price of battery replacement for some iPhone, iPad, and Mac models between $20 and $50. Now, users who want to put a new battery in Apple’s smartwatch will apparently have to pay $99. This is despite the fact that previously the cost of such work was 79 dollars.
Apple has increased the price of battery replacement for Apple Watch Series 4 and newer models. Apple Watch owners, who used to pay $79 for battery replacement, now have to pay $20 more for such a task. To access the price of Apple repairs, you can go to the Apple after-sales service website and see the price by selecting the device model and required repairs.
Increasing Apple repair costs
As mentioned, Apple has increased the cost of replacing the battery of its smartwatches. Of course, such a decision is not surprising because it took this procedure earlier this year and increased the cost of battery replacement for some models of iPhone, iPad, and Mac between 20 and 50 dollars.
Of course, it should be kept in mind that paying for battery replacement can be a good way to extend the life of old devices and the user will no longer need to buy a new device. For example, some users prefer not to buy a new device by replacing the battery and some updates. However, some others tend to have a new and updated device.
However, the increase in costs in any form is not the will of the users and they do not like to face the increase in costs. It remains to be seen if Apple plans to increase other repair and service costs, or if this will be the last price increase in the area of after-sales service in 2023.
