    I had my iPhone 7 plus for more one year and unfortunately it stopped works.
    They told me it charged extra $300 to replace battery when i came to Apple store. It is amazing!

    iFixit has some good teardown instructions. You might want to check those out. Otherwise, see if any local repair shops can do it. Some of those connectors are delicate and can break easily if you have little experience tearing down the phone.

    Also, the 7+ is over 2 1/2 years old. Maybe it's time for an upgrade?

    And for the record, I'm currently using a 7+ with battery at 87% and no plans to upgrade anytime soon.

    I'm sorry that you're experiencing issues with your iPhone. I would definitely check out the link that @Lee_Bo shared. Your phone is getting older, but not too old. One other question: have you tried using another charging cable? Sometimes cables do go bad, and out of all the possible solutions, a new cable would be the most affordable.

    Also, welcome to iMore. We're glad to have you here and look forward to hearing more from you. Please keep us posted on this situation, and what you decide to do.

    Welcome to iMore Eva. I had this issue with my 7 Plus as well and was advised by Apple to check my charging block, cable and outlet. Come to find out my charging block needed to be changed. I hope things work out for you and feel free to join in on the many threads on iMore.

    If you’ve never replaced a screen before, get a replacement screen from eBay or amazon for around 20$, watch a few videos and do it yourself. It’s fairly easy if you follow the instructions.

    $300 to replace the battery? Apple charges $79.99 to replace a battery. Was there other issues?

    If your Cable are working fine and Power Adapter also is fine. then you should replace the battery.
    using iFixit videos DIY replace the battery. only needs to buy a good quality battery, you can buy it from Amazon, eBay, Mobilesentrix and more other sites.
    If you can't replace the battery, than LedSteplin suggests the best option.
