    You could pay Apple to replace it, which I believe is 79 dollars, OR you can try to do it yourself with a kit from iFixit (or some other place), for around 25.

    NOTE: Doing it yourself is an advanced endeavor and should ONLY be done if you are comfortable and knowledgeable about electronics repair. PROCEED AT YOUR OWN RISK!

    I know a few people who have used the IFixit kit to replace their batteries. They were successful. YOU need to be patient and careful.

    Yea my brother has done it with his kid's 5Cs (when they had them), it certainly can be done. I just wanted the alert the OP that things CAN go wrong.

    According to this Apple site, an out of warranty 7+ battery replacement is $49:

    I'd pay $49 to have it done by .

    Most likely not.
    A higher mAh battery is either larger or thicker, either way, it won’t fit in the current housing, therefore it’s unlikely there are higher mAh batteries on the market for iPhones.

    I don’t know anybody that’s talking about it.

    Perhaps because it’s an aftermarket battery they are off by 10 mAh, which can either be a margin error or something else.

    I wouldn’t want a £7 battery in my £1000 costing device anyway. So if there even is a ‘they’ and ‘everyone’ let them talk whatever they want.

    82% is not that bad. It still has a good bit of life left. After 3 years of heavy use, my 6s Plus was at about 68% life, before I took it in for replacement. It still worked fine, except I had to charge more often and had occasional springboard crashes. But 82% is still good. You have plenty of time to consider your options.

    My bad. Sometimes we retitle threads to make them appear as a question that can be answered. This makes the thread more useful to others searching for the same issue. I have changed it again and hope that it more closely reflects the issue at hand.

    You can get high capacity batts that work better than oem. Look it up on amazon. I got the luctan for my 6 and it lasts longer than stock. I think it’s 400 mah more.
