Apple Corp. updated a reminder on the “Technical Support” website titled “Beware of fake parts,” stating that some counterfeit and third-party chargers (power adapters) and batteries may be improperly designed and may cause security problems. It is recommended that consumers go to Apple retail stores and Apple authorized service distributors to replace genuine phone batteries and recommend that consumers purchase official original chargers.
It is understood that most mobile phone repair shops now offer iPhone replacement battery service, which is generally 15-25 US dollars. We entered “Genuine Original iPhone 6 Battery” in a retail mall and found up to 100 pages of search results, ranging from $5 to $40.
One of the highest-selling stores found that the cheapest iPhone 4 battery costs only 5 US dollars, while the most expensive iPhone 6s Plus battery is only 15 US dollars. Although the price is very cheap, but we found in the product name, the merchant was shockingly wrote the word “official authentic”, but then a closer look and found that the battery actually printed a third-party brand.
Apple’s official website shows that the battery replacement cost is 100 dollars, far above these prices.
This is not the first time that Apple has issued a reminder for a phone charger. In 2013, Apple said that “some of the counterfeit and third-party power adapter designs may lead to security problems,” and it was launched between August 9 and August 16 that year. For a $10 redemption program for USB mobile phone chargers, users only need to bring any mobile phone charger to Apple’s official retail store for an additional $10 to redeem an official phone charger.
Apple company reminds the full text as follows:
