According to MacRumors, the technicians could replace an entire new iPhone for the price of the battery only if the battery tabs are broken. This is something truly surprising to everyone of us. Imagine getting yourself a new iPhone just because the battery tabs is broken. Since last week Thursday Apple have implemented this guidelines worldwide.

However, this service is only applies for the third-party batteries only. If you change your iPhones logic board, Apple will not ever fix it for you. The technician team will ignore the battery and move on with the normal servicing.

Back in 2017, Apple allowed repairing the iPhone third-party displays. But now things have to change since the #BatteryGate issue flies around. Now Apple has no choice rather than providing this offer to all their loyal iPhone customers.
