The most frequently asked questions at Phone Repair Doctor

Can You Replace An iPhone Battery?

Yes, we can replace your iPhone battery. We have replaced over 10,000 batteries in iPhones over the years. We use the highest quality replacement parts. Usually, we can replace the battery inside your iPhone in 30 minutes depending on the model of the device and if you have made an online booking. If your iPhone battery isn't lasting as long anymore there is a good chance that a replacement battery will fix your problems. We offer a free diagnosis service to confirm this before we change the battery. 

Can You Change An iPad Battery?
In short yes we can replace your iPad battery. iPad batteries are designed to last for so many cycles... how many I can't say as batteries behave slightly differently depending on how they are used. If your iPad battery just isn't lasting and you find it running out quicker than it used to then a new battery is a great idea. Its a fraction of the cost of a new iPad and will prolong the life of your device. Typically it takes 24-48 hours to replace the battery in your iPad. If you need the job done quicker please get in contact with us and we can arrange for this.
