Suppose your phone has any damage preventing the battery replacement process; Apple’s staff will have to deal with such an issue before the replacement. The technicians will determine the cost associated with such a repair. Prior to providing any battery replacement, they’ll typically go through various troubleshooting, such as determining if it is your cable or power adapter causing your iPhone not to charge or have battery issues.

How to Use Your Apple Warranty
Ensure you access online help resources before asking for Apple warranty service. If your Apple product stills fail to work correctly after using the resources, call an Apple representative or your Apple store if that applies to you. Resellers can also provide the assistance you need if you reach them through online help resources.
An Apple representative will look at your warranty to establish if it requires service. You’ll advise them on how Apple will provide the service if you qualify for one.
The options include:
- Repairing the product using new or previously used genuine parts from Apple. These have undergone testing and passed all functional requirements determined by Apple.
- Replacing the Apple product with another one of the same model. You may also consent to get a replacement with a product with the same or almost similar features. For example, you could get a device of a different model but with the same features or the same model in a different color.
- Exchange the product for a refund of the purchase price. The company may require that you replace some user-installable parts or Apple products. This option assumes the remaining portion of the warranty or 90 days from the date of repair or replacement. When Apple replaces a product or provides a refund, any replacement item becomes your property, and the replaced or refunded items become Apple’s property.
Can I Claim an Apple Warranty Without a Receipt?
The receipt you obtained at the purchase of an Apple proof of purchase. Apple requires you to present it to claim your warranty. If the receipt or invoice is unavailable, you can show evidence using:
- The purchased account
- Copy of the receipt
- Serial number
Sometimes you must present more than one of these documents to support your claim.
Does the Apple Warranty Start from the Purchase Date or Activation?
The standard one-year Apple warranty starts when you purchase a product from them. This is also the invoice date.
You can buy the AppleCare+ warranty within 60 days after the purchase date to extend the guarantee to two or three years, depending on the product. AppleCare+ start from your original purchase date though, not when you activate AppleCare+.
