Apple reveals how much it’ll cost to replace the battery of your “slow” iPhone in Malaysia

Yesterday, Apple had apologised for slowing down its older iPhones on purpose if it has an aged battery. To regain its original performance, you’ll need to replace the battery. As gesture of good will, Apple is offering a discount to affected users and now they have revealed its pricing for the Malaysian market.

According to its Malaysian page of the announcement, the original battery costs RM369 and they are offering a discounted price of just RM129. That’s savings of RM240 off.

Apple is reducing the price of an out-of-warranty iPhone battery replacement by RM 240 — from RM 369 to RM 129 — for anyone with an iPhone 6 or later whose battery needs to be replaced, available worldwide through December 2018. Details will be provided soon on

In the US, the battery replacement costs US$79 (about RM321) while the discounted replacement costs US$29 (about RM117).

The actual battery replacement process isn’t shared yet but it’s likely done through its authorised service providers across Malaysia. In the past, Apple have used these channels to handle their battery replacement programs. We will update once we have more info.

The discounted battery replacement offer is applicable for the iPhone 6 and above and it will be available until December 2018.

UPDATE: The RM129 battery replacement is now available at Machines and Switch service centres in Malaysia.
