Apple announced recently that it is offering those with poor iPhone batteries the ability to replace them for a discounted rate. Normally costing $79, the replacement will only cost $29 for the whole of 2018.

What this means is that anyone with a battery in an iPhone 6 or newer device who is experiencing poor battery life or throttled CPU performance should take advantage of the offer this year, while they can.

While the offer is not going to end any time soon, you really should take advantage sooner rather than later. After all, the sooner you get your battery replaced, the longer you can enjoy that lovely new battery, and not to forget the performance gains that you will have after replacing the battery. Here’s what you need to do to get your new battery today.

Step 1: First, make sure you actually need one by going through our guide here: How To Check iPhone Battery Health To Determine A Replacement For Speed Boost And Greater Battery Life.

Step 2: If your battery needs replacing, head on overto Apple’s website at getsupport.apple.com to get the ball rolling.

Step 3: Via the website, schedule a Genius Bar appointment at either a local Apple Store or authorized service provider. If there are none, you can also mail your iPhone in.

If you’d like more information, or just want to talk to someone at Apple about the whole process, call  (800) MY–APPLE.

Apple has also confirmed that a new update to iOS during 2018 will give users more visibility of what its software is doing with regards to the health of their iPhone, so it will be interesting to see exactly what that means. We don’t expect Apple to give users the option to disable any of the throttling that it now employs, but we do at least expect users to be told when it is activated.
