  1. Could you please tell me how much it would cost to replace the battery of the iPhone 5s? Why is it not included in this initiative?
    Thanks. Pauline

  2. I had my battery on my iPhone 6S+ on December 21st and it was just out of warranty so paid $119. Now it is just $39, anything I can do about the extra I paid if I went back to them?

    1. Kevin, Apple are yet to confirm if they are going to be giving refunds out to those who paid the full $119. In the past when something like this has happened, they have. I am going to reach out to Apple and see what their policy is on this – as you’re not the only one to ask. :)
