Unfortunately, battery replacement can be necessary, even in new phones. Whether it is a factory defect or a mistake by the phone’s user, a faulty battery can cause many problems. Luckily, there are many signs that will let a person know that they may need iPhone SE battery replacement. These repairs vary in cost, depending on if a phone is under warranty or not.
Among the many signs that an iPhone SE battery needs replacement, the most common involves iPhone SE battery life. If an iPhone SE has been fully charged and drops to 50% within an hour of use, the battery may need to be replaced. The iPhone could shut down unexpectedly. In this case, the user may try to soft reset the phone by holding the sleep/wake and home button down. If this tactic does not work, the phone might need battery replacement.
Sometimes, an iPhone SE battery life can only stay charged when plugged in. If the phone is unplugged, it will shut down. This is a clear indicator that something is wrong with the iPhone. If the phone feels hot to the touch, the battery needs to be replaced. If the phone has been out in hot temperatures, however, it may be fine. Allow the phone to cool off before assuming the battery needs replaced. If the functioning of the iPhone SE seems slow, the battery could be connected to the problem.
In some cases, the iPhone SE battery will inflate. An overgrown battery can cause the phone casing to burst open, rendering it useless. Avoid puncturing the battery and take the phone to a professional for assistance.
