Battery Replacement

After a period of time that will vary depending on use and settings, you may find that your battery will power your device for only a couple of hours, requiring you to charge more frequently. Rechargeable batteries have a limited number of charge cycles and may eventually need to be replaced.

Battery Replacements

You may choose to replace your battery while it still has a little juice left, or wait until the battery does not hold enough energy to power your device at all to replace it. As with all batteries, proper disposal is essential. Putting any battery directly in the trash harms the environment. Once an Apple product reaches the end of its useful life, Apple will help you recycle it responsibly. Learn more about Apple’s recycling program
