    They will. But not if they can get it for $29. Some may upgrade instead if it's $80.
    Very true.

    Yes Apple can replace the batteries. HOWEVER the 29 dollar deal is just for phones. And the iPad battery is 99 dollars, not 79.

    I'll probably upgrade in September, but will keep my 6s Plus as a back up. It needs a battery now, but I'll wait as long as possible to get one. I'm just hoping they can put one in without updating my OS. I want to keep it on iOS 10.1.1.

    I don't believe they would require you to update. They might recommend it, but I don't think they would require it. I had a situation in the past like that, and the Apple guy had no issues working on my iPhone on an older OS which was even jail broken. We danced around the issue. He knew and I knew he knew, but it went unsaid. If I recall he DID recommend that I upgrade to the latest software, BUT since the issue was hardware based he said it really didn't matter.

    I hope that's the case. Seems I recall someone saying they updated their phone without asking. I'll have to mail mine in, as I'm about 80 miles from the nearest Apple Store.

    Typical Apple. Any noticeable improvement in terms of performance?
    Wife and her mother (It’s now a mother-in-law device), say that its back to normal.

    Note: it’s running the latest iOS beta.

    Do it now. Why fight with a phone that has a dying battery. They don’t update the OS. They just look at the condition of the phone and make sure it still works.

    Make a day trip out of it. Have some fun in the big city.

    It runs fine. No fighting, I just have to charge several times a day. I want to wait so the new battery will last longer, as I will keep it and likely use it along with whatever I upgrade to. I have several 32 bit apps I will use on the 6s Plus.
    I'm not sure I could drive that far anymore. I'd probably have to get someone to take me. Besides, they don't have anything we don't have, other than an Apple Store. It's aggravating that Apple won't put a store here. There's only 2 stores in the entire state of Alabama.

    I’m not saying $50 is irrelevant but are people NOT going to get a battery replaced if they need to because it cost $80 vs $30?
    They will. But not if they can get it for $29. Some may upgrade instead if it's $80.
    Ledsteplin beat me to it. .......In addition, some would still claim to have been forced to upgrade because the battery in the current phone didn’t last long enough...

    Unless the X2 or Xs or X+ is really an upgrade I may keep my phones longer than usual and get my batteries replaced in December if the charge cycles are more than 200 or so.

    Luckily I’m kinda right in the middle of both of them . Bham is closer but both aren’t bad for me. Planning on swinging by next time if in bham and letting them change mine on my 6+.
