But it also gives you accidental damage repair up to two times per year, and a lot more. For example, if I was to smash the screen of my iPhone 12 Pro it would normally cost A$439 to fix. But with AppleCare+ it will only cost me A$45. Learn more about AppleCare+ for iPhone 12 Pro.
There are two ways you can get the battery replaced in your iPhone, as outlined by Apple in their support document. This can be done either by sending it in or bringing it in for repair. As most of us use our iPhones everyday, bringing it in is the best option. In almost all cases, Apple or an Apple Authorised Service Centre can replace the battery within the appointment time.
