Well, back before that performance fiasco, batteries would cost $79, then that offer came up for $29 and then post that, I think they permanently reduced price to $49 I think. I know I am quoting US prices but you get the idea.

Also, back in July 2020, I asked the local apple reseller and he quoted me Rs. 2854 something for iPhone 6S Battery replacement.

A bit confused.

Suggestions Please
Go for original. I did a DIY with a battery in Amazon and that battery bulged in 2 months. With original Apple battery you will get their warranty as well.

Is there any measure of how much a new battery health should degrade?
Mine is at 98 % in just 40 days of replacement.
If at all there is any such yardstick, I can atleast check with their warranty claim which is valid for 90 days.

Re: Android to iPhone?

I need to copy the content and apps(like WhatsApp) on RN4(android) to an iPhone 11.
So, what's the best way to do this?

Please advise!

I bought the 2020 SE recently and the battery is at 99% after 2 months. Iím a moderate user charging my phone once in a day. Not sure but I donít think apple will entertain warranty claims.

21st Dec I put electrical tape over the battered wire, and 25th Dec it has slowly slid down and again there is a possibility of the wires breaking so, was happy for a while but, again looking for a permanent solution.

Ditto. And they will not entertain warranty claims as long as their diagnostics software and the iOS system assesses the battery as "functioning normally".

The original Apple replacement battery in my IP7+ degrades at approx. 1% every 2 months, averaging at about 10% in 19 months. This is based on my charging and usage patterns. A new Apple battery has a 3 month warranty. There is no yard stick as such because usage patterns are totally based on the individual what applications the person runs and the charge/discharge cycles the battery goes through.

I have a box of heatshrink sleeves of different sizes.

The iPhone Thread-9e883ce14c764511951c5907a8e1b715.jpeg

Used one which slid through the lightning adapter end. And used the heat gun to shrink it. Repeat it once again for 2 sleeves.

Re: The iPhone Thread

The iPhone Thread-3925fbe2292d475782b0b7b4e1da93a8.jpeg

Similar covers are available in Flipkart for around 300-400 each that too with original apple packaging and logo. I am currently using them but the only issue is that these covers make the phone bulky and the bigger issue is its very cumbersome to slide them into the pocket, which otherwise is a slick job. I use this cover when I use the phone while working on the vehicle, or when travelling outstation.

Move to iOS app from play store would be a good place to start. Moving WhatsApp messages, it's not straightforward. You need third-party apps to do so. A quick google search gave this article on this subject. I remember somebody sharing their success story about this app on this thread.

Re: The iPhone Thread

I have actually given up on trying to move whatsapp data from android to Iphone or vice versa. Its an absolute pain and has always been. There are so many small points that you need to follow to get this done successfully.

Agreed. A few of them had posted on this thread their experiences of moving WhatsApp chats from Android to iOS and that they had paid for a certain app. But not much details. I was a bit sceptical of it and more so, I wasnít very concerned of transferring the chats (most of them from junk anyway). For the really important ones which I felt I may have to refer to at some point later, I took a backup as a document (which WhatsApp permits you to) and sent them to my mail.
