And for the iPad, the battery service fee will increase by 20% for all models except for the iPad Pro with the M2 chip and the entry-level iPad with the A14 chip (launched in October 2022).

In addition, the out-of-warranty battery service fee on all MacBook Air models will be increased by 30%, and all regular MacBook and MacBook Pro models will be increased by $50.
