Prices for replacing iPhones batteries will rise in 2019

When the polemics of batteries of iPhones reached their peak, Apple was forced to take a more drastic approach and reduced the prices for replacing the batteries in the devices (from R $ 449 to R $ 149). At the time, we informed that such price would last until December 2018 and that, in 2019, the values ​​would return to normal. Now we are reaching the end of the year and Apple decided to share more information about the values ​​that will be practiced from next year.

According to a support page, until December 31, 2018, the out-of-warranty battery service fee will remain at R $ 149 for models of iPhones SE, 6, 6 Plus, 6s, 6s Plus, 7, 7 Plus , 8, 8 Plus and X. Starting in 2019, prices will look like this:

Home Appliances
iPhones SE, 6, 6 Plus, 6s, 6s Plus, 7, 7 Plus, 8, 8 Plus R $ 329
iPhones X, Xs, Xs Max and Xr R $ 449

The news is bad and good at the same time. Bad because the price really goes up, so anyone who is facing a problem with the battery and has an iPhone 6 or later needs to run to take advantage of the reduced values. The good part is that, even with the price hike starting in January 2019, most exchanges cost R $ 329 (a reduction of R $ 120 compared to the R $ 449 charged until the controversy starts).

In the United States, the current value of $ 29 goes up to:

iPhones SE, 6, 6 Plus, 6s, 6s Plus, 7, 7 Plus, 8, 8 Plus $ 49
iPhones X, Xs, Xs Max and Xr $ 69
Other eligible, old iPhones $ 79

As before the controversy the exchange in the USA cost US $ 79, the readjustment there also ends up being beneficial for customers.
