Can you replace a battery in an iPhone?

We've been receiving a lot of messages and requests around fitting a new battery in the newer generation of iPhone devices. Therefore we've put together a list of questions an answers regarding 3rd party or genuine Apple battery repairs.

If you replace the battery in a newer iPhone (such as iPhone XR, iPhone 11, iPhone XS, iPhone 12) you'll receive a service notification in Settings > Battery (next to Battery Health). Although it can look like a problem with your battery, it can also mean that it's not a genuine battery that's been fitted - or it means it's a genuine battery but it hasn't been paired with your device.

If you want to gain access to the battery health menu, the only way to reactivate it is to have a genuine Apple battery repair and have the device calibrated through Apple (don't panic - we offer this service too).

Not everybody wants access to the battery health menu though - if you fall into this category you can have a 3rd party battery fitted at a lower cost (in most cases).
