Trading in Your Iphone? Your Carrier May Need to Have the Battery Removed. September 09 2016

We've been getting reports of Verizon Wireless customers saying that in order to ship their iPhones in as part of their trade-in program, the battery must first be removed. We speculate that this is to help minimize the possibility of battery damage during transit. It's a simple enough undertaking to remove the battery, but it does require some special tools. It also requires some technical know-how. We do battery replacements here at Got Mac for all iPhones. If you need to have your iPhone battery removed, please don't hesitate to bring it to us.
