Why Should You Get Your Battery Replaced at Mac Choice?
We know that there are a lot of available options for battery repair, and it’s easy to understand why we might think that all batteries are the same and that all repairers are the same.
Unfortunately, the reality is that nearly all repairers are not Apple partners and therefore do not have access to Apple genuine parts. Some repairers will claim they have access to ‘OEM’ batteries that are claimed to be exactly the same as Apple batteries, however this is often proven to be untrue. Third party batteries might be:
- Poorly manufactured as a direct result of needing to be as cheap as possible
- Previously used and recycled from an old phone without you knowing
- Damaged and therefore dangerous to use
- The incorrect battery for your iPhone model, that is ‘forced’ to fit
- Installed by technicians with limited training
In September 2019, Apple released an article on their website about iPhone Batteries and how they perform as they age. You can read it online
