The tech giant had warned that the cost would go up in March.

Previously, a battery for the iPhone 13 would come in at £69.

But today it’s £89.

In fact, all the batteries appear to have gone up £20.

The same has happened in the US, where it’ll now cost you $89.

But it only applies to products that are out of warranty.

If you iPhone is still under warranty then you might be able to get a free replacement, as long as it’s not because it’s worn out due to “normal use”.

Apple previously said: “The current out-of-warranty battery service fee will apply until the end of February 2023.

“Effective 1 March 2023, the out-of-warranty battery service fee will be increased by £20 for all iPhone models prior to iPhone 14.”

iPad battery replacements now cost anything from £129 on an iPad Mini, right the way up to £195 on an iPad Pro.

And for Macs, it’s between £159 and £245.

Apple fans who have AppleCare+ can get a free battery replacement if you device holds less than 80 per cent.
