Can I replace the battery in my iPhone 3GS myself or do I have to take it to an Apple store or phone store to have it replaced?


iPhone 3GS, iOS 6

    While you CAN change the battery yourself, you will void any and all warranty service from Apple.  Apple offers a battery replacement for $79

    Thanks. I saw on YouTube a person replacing the battery and noticed that if you do one thing out of sequence, you just messed up and the cables are so tiny, it wouldn't take much to tear one. It would be worth it to let the experts with the proper training do such task.  Thanks again.
