iPhone Battery Replacement

Over time, the Lithium-Ion batteries in mobile phones and other devices deteriorate and become less effective. As an Apple Authorised service center in Rockhampton we can replace your iPhone battery with a genuine Apple battery and give you the peace of mind of having a genuine battery that will last for many more years to come.

Standard Warranty

iPhone has a standard 12 month warranty which covers defects and faults, and additionally, consumers have additional protections under Australian Consumer Law that may provide for a longer warranty period up to 2 years. You can use the Coverage Checker on Apple’s website to see if this might be the case.

AppleCare+ Warranty

If your iPhone is covered by AppleCare+ your battery is automatically covered. If you are unsure whether you have AppleCare+ on your device, you can use the Coverage Checker on Apple’s website.

If your iPhone is outside of warranty, is not covered by consumer law or doesn’t have AppleCare+ coverage don’t despair as we’re still able to help. We’re able to perform battery replacements (usually) in-store at the following low prices, using 100% genuine Apple batteries and tools, with Apple qualified technicians.

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
