Question: How does Apple's Battery Replacement program work?

Do I need to call an Apple store or just stop in to make an appointment to have my battery replaced in my iPhone6S?

iPhone 6s, iOS 10.0.2

Don't call a store. There's no direct customer connection to an Apple Store. They don't allow it since they'd probably get swamped with calls. It goes straight to AppleCare once you ask for anything more than automated stuff like store hours.


You can stop in to make an appointment. In my experience that allows for a two-week window.


You can also make an appointment online up to a one-week window. Here's my way of doing it (for the US - don't know how similar it is for other countries):


  • Start here: https://support.apple.com/iphone/repair
  • Click on "Start your repair request" (blue button at the bottom).
  • Click on "Battery, Power & Charging".
  • Click on "Battery Replacement".
  • Then click on "Bring in for Repair". You have to select a carrier, but it doesn't really matter.
