As flagged by Apple earlier in the year, the price of replacing some iPhone batteries — and the batteries of some other devices — has now gone up.
The March 1 battery replacement price hike was highlighted by Apple in January and is now in place. If you have an iPhone X, iPhone 11, iPhone 12, or iPhone 13, the cost of having Apple replace a battery is now $89 instead of $69. For the iPhone 14 series, the cost remains $99 as it has been since launch.

Via 9to5Mac, battery replacements on the iPhone SE, iPhone 8 and earlier models has increased from $49 to $69.
However, Apple points out that iPhones remains “eligible for a battery replacement at no additional cost if you have AppleCare+ and your product’s battery holds less than 80 percent of its original capacity.” iOS users can check battery’s current capacity via Settings > Battery > Battery Health.
Apple announced in January on its battery replacement support page: “The current out-of-warranty battery service fee will apply until the end of February 2023. Effective March 1, 2023, the out-of-warranty battery service fee will be increased by $20 for all iPhone models prior to iPhone 14.”
