When to Replace iPhone 14 battery?
One of the most common sayings is “Nothing lasts forever”. The battery is a consumable hardware item that has a limited lifespan. It takes 500 full charges for an iPhone battery to reach 80% capacity. However, this does not mean you need to replace the iPhone battery. The battery will, however, tend to affect the normal use of your device when it dips below 80%.
The best time to replace the iPhone battery is when the battery drops to around 50-60%, based on our own experience. Additionally, there are some other cases when replacing the iPhone 14 battery may be necessary, such as accidental damage or a faulty battery.
Where to Replace iPhone 14 Battery?
There are a few ways to replace the iPhone 14 battery. In order to provide you with a complete guide, we will provide you with all the possible ways to replace the iPhone 14 battery.
Apple Store or Apple Authorized Service Provider
When we need to replace the iPhone battery or face any other issue with our iPhone, we immediately think of the Apple store or an Apple-authorized service provider. It is probably a good idea to replace the iPhone battery with Apple itself. Apple makes the iPhone, and you can rest assured that you will receive genuine iPhone parts and professional service from Apple.
However, before going directly to the Apple store, make sure your iPhone warranty covers battery replacement. In Apple’s warranty policy, batteries that wear down due to normal use are not covered, meaning if you damage your iPhone battery or its warranty has expired, you will need to pay a fee.

Third-Party Phone Repair Shop
The second choice should be third-party repair shops, but they may also be the first choice in some cases. The best place to get your Apple iPhone 14 repaired is a third-party shop if you have damaged it accidentally or if it is no longer covered by warranty. Most people choose a third-party repair shop for iPhone 14 battery replacement because it is much cheaper than the Apple store.
