Apple is substituting some iPhone battery cases for free in light of charging issues

Apple said on Friday that it will give free replacements for some iPhone cases with worked in batteries due to charging issues.

Clients can supplant malfunctioning iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR Smart Battery Cases in any color produced between January 2019 and October 2019 at Apple stores or approved Apple service providers, as indicated by a notification posted on Apple’s website.

Defective battery cases sometimes won’t charge or won’t charge the phone inside the case, as indicated by Apple. The organization said the substitution program isn’t identified with a safety issue and that clients have two years from the date of sale to swap it out.

Apple’s battery cases cost $129 and expand the charge for an iPhone by including an additional external battery. The cases profit through tight integration with the iPhone operating system. For instance, the amount of battery left is shown in the notification center and lock screen, and it charges with Apple’s proprietary Lightning port — a similar charger the iPhone uses.

The previous summer, the cases were out of stock or in short supply on Apple’s website for months, as indicated by MacRumors.
