If you have an older version with a lock button the current cost of battery replacement is around $49 USD and after this price hike, it will be around $69 USD.

This price change will be effective for other countries also not only USA. This would mean for a person in India will have to pay around ₹2400 extra by the 1st of march 2023.

Currently, there is no information available as to why this decision is being taken up by Apple. We even tried to reach apple at the time of framing this article but weren’t able to get any reply.
