    I have an iPhone 6 Plus and the battery still has, according to iOS 12’s Battery Health estimate, 89% maximum capacity. Other than this phone being older and now a bit slow, I have never had a problem with it. I’m going to get a new phone and give it to my youngest son. My wife has an iPhone 7 Plus and my daughter has an iPhone 7. Both of these, despite being 2 years newer than mine, have about the same maximum capacity (according to iOS 12’s Battery Health estimate).

    While Apple still has the $29 battery replacement offer, I was considering going ahead and getting the battery replaced on these devices, especially the iPhone 7 Plus and 7.

    Is an iPhone that has the battery replaced by Apple as good as originally from the factory as far as the seals, structural integrity, etc? What has been most people's experience? Replacing the battery on an older phone sounds great, but my concern is whether the original factory seals, glue, etc. aren’t as good when Apple replaces the battery and closes everything back up. Or maybe they go out of there way to make sure the phone is very similar, seal-wise, as to what it originally was when they are done.

    Yes. If it’s replaced by Apple Store you will not even tell it apart from a factory one.

    If the battery has been replaced by the Apple. It is Apple? Is not it?
    Apple only uses original stuff when they do repairs.

    If you have the battery replaced by a Apple Technican at the Apple store, your battery will be the same one that’s installed by the factory when the device was new.

    Thanks, @Tartarus and @bakron1, for your feedback. I don't have an Apple Store closer than about 90 minutes away or so, but I'll talk to them about making an appointment and having them do the work.

    I agree with the others... if it's an Apple battery, installed by Apple, then yes!
