Today, Apple disclosed details regarding the warranty and replacement costs for iPhone batteries. Initially, the battery of your iPhone comes with a one-year warranty.

Plans to unveil Apple Care for iPhone are set for later this summer, according to sources. Subscribers to this service will be eligible for a battery replacement if their current battery’s capacity falls below 50% during the coverage period.

For those without this coverage, replacing a battery will cost $79US.

Additionally, Apple has committed to disposing of used batteries in a way that is environmentally-friendly. This should temper any undue enthusiasm from environmental watchdogs like Greenpeace.
