On the other hand, the regular iPad’s battery replacement fee would continue to cost between $99 and $199. For others, there will be an added cost of $20. This will be subject to the model type.
For instance, the battery replacement price for the sixth-generation 12.9-inch iPad Pro and fourth-generation 11-inch iPad Pro will likely remain the same, $179 and 149, respectively.
Why It’s Important: Apple users who have AppleCare+ or those with devices still covered by warranty will remain unstirred by this price hike.
Last September, Apple increased the price to replace iPhone 14’s battery from $69 to $99. However, in the latest price hike, the tech giant is keeping the $99 price tag for most current devices, the report noted.
