Also the cost of other service repairs for your iPhone
If you are having issues with a battery case for your latest iPhone models like for iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR, then the good news is that Apple offers a program where you can get it replaced instantly. This program was launched when Apple saw that some Smart Battery Cases made for iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR were experience charging issues. An affected Smart Battery Case may exhibit one or more of the following behaviors:
- The battery case will not charge or charges intermittently when plugged into power.
- Battery case does not charge the iPhone or charges it intermittently
Note that under this program only those affected battery units that were manufactured between January 2019 and October 2019 are replaced. Also, this is not a safety issue and Apple or an Apple Authorized Service Provider will replace eligible battery cases, free of charge.
The Smart Battery Case models below are eligible for this program:
Besides these no other iPhone Smart Battery Cases are part of this program.
How does Replacement Process work?
You need to first choose one of the service options to have your Smart Battery Case replaced. Your Smart Battery Case will be examined prior to any service to verify that it is eligible for this program.
- Find an Apple Authorized Service Provider.
- Make an appointment at an Apple Retail Store.
- If you have questions or need further assistance, you can contact Apple Support.
Note that Apple may restrict or limit repair to the original country or region of purchase. This worldwide Apple program doesn’t extend the standard warranty coverage of the Smart Battery Case.
The program covers affected Smart Battery Case for 2 years after the first retail sale of the unit. Also, the affected battery cases will be disposed of in an environmentally friendly way.
