I replaced my battery at 93% at no charge during my last month of warranty. No need below X%.

mine is at 96% after 5 months, XS.

You mean a replacement free battery or a replacement new set of ipx.
Do they automatically waive off the charges becos I'm going down apple store this week becos of bloated battery and causing the screen to protrude. Or we need to fight our case becos it's out of warranty.

If anyone is changing their battery. Please don't go to Tampines Gamemartz phone repair shop.
They charge you $50 for an OEM battery that can't even work!
Warranty is only 3 weeks!
Then when they pry open your phone like opening a tin can!

Tbh the diff between Apple shop and those 3rd party is not a lot. Apple store charging $69 if yours is like iPhone 6/7/8. 3rd party shop selling about $25-$40. So diff is about $30-$40, which works out to be less than $2 a month if you intend to use for 2 more years. Might as well, at least you are guaranteed of the quality
