Apple iphone battery replacement

    Top tip - My battery was showing 78% and wasn't keeping a full charge very long. I happened to pass an Apple shop this week whilst getting my Covid jab. I didn't know they could change the battery within 2 hours. I always assumed they needed to sent away for 1-2 weeks! My iPhone 8 is now back to peak performance. Great service and far better than going to those 3rd party repair shops. For under £50, I can see my iPhone lasting another few years.:)

    And many of the phone repair places don’t use the best quality batteries, so a few months later you’re back to where you started.

    I was about to go to! I actually sent them a message on whether they do the glue seal for the water-proofing but they didn't get back to me. Thank Goodness!
    Only by chance, I was close to the Apple Shop. I told Apple staff that they should advertise more prominently about their repair service as I really believed they couldn't repair it on the day.
    I would have been happy to pay double @ Apple repair shop anytime!

    Can anyone remind me of the consumer protection legislation which effectively trumps Companies own guarantees.

    I could change the battery myself for the cost of a few pounds on my old Blackberry. It also kept a charge for three or four times longer than my iPhone SE. I managed to avoid Apple products entirely until a couple of years ago, where did I go wrong!
