Recently my iPhone battery has been losing its charge rather quickly, and this has become very inconvenient. It has come to a point where I need to make sure it’s at least 90% charged before I take it on a 30 minute run to listen to music. If not, I start to lose motivation half way through due to the lack of Beastie Boys rocking in my ear. So I decided I need to replace the battery, but can iPhone batteries be replaced?
I guess I always had thought, due to its sleek design and not too visible access points to the interior, that if something starts to fail on the iPhone you have to get a new phone. I started looking around and asking the technicians at Everon about different parts of my phone and if they can be fixed and was surprised to find out that a lot of these replacements can be done very quickly and are cost effective. You can send your phone into Apple for about $80 and they will replace your battery for you. Or you can go the DIY route. If you do want to do it yourself there are kits available, ranging from $5-$30. The kits include the tools to open your phone safely without harming your screen and a replacement battery. I found these tool kits on Amazon.com along with another possible solution, mobile battery chargers! Along with replacing my battery, I think it’s an awfully good idea to have one of these compact chargers on hand just in case. Now I am so excited to go on an extra-long run and not worry about my tunes cutting out half way through!
