AirPod battery replacements are free from Apple in-warranty or with AppleCare

By Jules Wang December 14, 2016, 7:59 pm

You know what the most annoying thing about wireless earbuds are? You’ve got an extra pair of batteries to worry about and a charging case and, well, that’s fun and all, but seriously? Our outlets are already maxed out.

Well, at least once the batteries inside the Apple AirPods run through their service life, you won’t have to pay terribly much to get them replaced. At least, if they’re in warranty or under AppleCare — it’s free in those cases. Don’t have either? It’s $49. You might also need $6.95 in shipping fees.

The information, oddly, is found under the iPhone repair service listings, so keep that in mind if you’re making an online request. Call in if you’re unsure.
