Without warning, Apple recently increased the price of out-of-warranty battery replacement for its laptops in the Apple Store. For a MacBook Pro (all models combined) or a 12″ MacBook, it now costs €229 instead of €209. For a MacBook Air, you now have to spend €149 compared to €139 previously.
Out-of-warranty accessory battery replacement is also a bit more expensive than before. For the Magic Keyboard, Magic Mouse or Magic Trackpad, the operation is charged €39, or €5 more. No change, however, for the out-of-warranty replacement of the battery of the iPad (109 €) or the iPhone (55 to 75 € depending on the model).
This increase for MacBooks and accessories is only a few weeks, if not a few days old. It concerns several European countries, but not the United States, which suggests that it is a price adjustment made by Apple to compensate for the fall in the euro against the dollar, as there was with the MacBook Air M1 , which rose from €1,129 to €1,199 at the start of June.
