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

Posted:  December 30, 2017   By:    48 comments   

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.

Crapple Apple.


    Exactly, charges so high.

    In US, Samsung S7 battery replacement service only costs US$73 only. Apple charges US$79, why $6 higher ?

    Throat cutting.


      not sure trolling or stupid


        It's up to both camps to interpret.


LOL at good will. There's not such thing from Apple.


Cheating and forced us to replace and still call it goodwill. It must be free coz they were caught cheating knowingly. Dishonest and still calling godwill.


So what about us who have iPhone 5s? Stumble in the dark?


    Using iPhone 5s in 2018? you are living in the dark.


      Lol, you must be apple fanboy as you change to new one when apple release new device. Old device like iphone5 or 5s still good enough for daily use, so why do we need to change it. I already change battery but still have lagging problem in ibook apps. Old ios work fine but now I cannot downgrade. So, I toss away my stupid apple device and use android now.


        You toss a device (brand) but you switch to another platform.

        It’s like “I dumped Nissan, switching to SUV now”

        Strange, you use Android now , which brand ? There are definitely crappy android phones like those RM199 ones.

        Unless you are saying, you tossed Apple and switch to another premium brand Samsung now.


          Using an Iphone or a premium android phone make you looks more high class?
          I can afford it doesn't mean I need it. Time to grow up kids, it's 2018.
          BUT I don't blame you, it's typical Malaysian kia-su mindset.


      Lol good one!


Nothing mention on iPad as it’s equally the same…

    Pen Fan

    Ya, what about iPad?


      Em..Before the battery we need remove the touch screen 1st and then LCD,but a bit risky the t.screen may crack anytime…


Apple said they will continue slowing down phones, then why valid until Dec 2018 only? After that back to normal price is it? Lol, apple still managed to create false marketing even caught red handed.


Instead of giving free battery replacement, Apple still wants to milk money from their customers.
Greediest company ever.


Exactly, Proton free replace power window time, a lot others car dealer go to carsifu site continuous attacking Proton, same rule apply here.


Rm80… DIY change battery using reputable 3rd party.. done in 30mins..Apple dont need more money from us


Bodo katak never use iphone don’t know the powerful speed of Apple, otak tak jalan and not afford buy it, jealous ifan use the powerful speed ultra smooth iphone, disguise as ifan come to make stupid false comment #foreverstayatbottom#


    iPhone is just as cheap as Samsung and HTC. It's even FREE in the US on postpaid plans. You think people who don't use apple can't afford it? Oh.. you don't know? Because your brain has been eaten by rotten Apple.


    Pity the fools that never felt the throttle power of Apple. Android forever at the bottom because Apple users forced to pay thousands for new phone but actual problem can be fixed cheaper with new battery.


    your english so bad that you need to mix it with a low class lang?


    u will sue apple or u will said no to the discount and pay full price or u will stay at the slow speed. which are u?


    What the f are you talking about?

    Nagandran Ayakannu

    Yes you are right, Bodo katak never use iPhone..


a cheater will always cheat !

Wat about earlier models. It’s slower but still functioning well. I am a retired man of 75 years. Can’t afford to keep changing to newer models. Hope you can be more considerate. Thank u very much


caught red-handed but still want to argue. if this never been found out? who is the bodoh kambing?


How about restore the speed without changing battery?

You made mistake and force us to buy battery from you?

WTF is happening with you, Apple?


All apple user are being screw by apple


apple is such a snake


RM 300 for a battery?
Get a new latest phone instead.
Not Iphone 8
Get Android phones.
Or this will happen again

Rm129 is too cheap!

Apple should charge Rm1290 instead.

I’m too rich now. I just received Rm 2.6 billion donation from an Arabic guy!

I dint get it. Isn’t this considered a fraud case? Even if they give a free replacement, this should considered a criminal case because it is intentional. Apple planned this to cheat their consumer based on the trust that we always think that Apple products are reliable. They should not get away with it. Bah! RM119. If there is no case against them, the world is indeed corrupted to the core.


    That’s y now there are multiple lawsuits going on all over the world. As of now US, France and South Korea.


Going from tax evasion to the security problems with root access to dishonest and damaging hidden practices seems like apple’s reputation should have taken a hit over the past year or two but I don’t think it really matters what Apple do, some people aren’t smart enough to vote with there wallets or realise they need to influence change in the industry by not supporting bad practices.

Something tells me apple will release a new phone soon, call it magical for copying features seen in androids for a year or two and the Apple crowd will lose their collective stuff and buy them in droves as usual. I bought an Apple Ipad pro (the new one) 12.9 inch with 256gb storage for my girlfriend for xmas, cost a pretty penny and comes with a crappy slow charger (proprietary tech and overpriced components to get a decent speed charge as usual with crapple) but if they start hampering it’s battery in the future too then I’ll never buy an Apple device again.

apple for noobie
