    Yes, but only for certain things. The battery is expected to wear out eventually under normal use, much in the same way that tires on a car do. So if it's just worn out, they won't replace it for free since it's not defective. (That's what warranties are: a warranty against defects.) But if the battery is defective and is doing something like not charging, or not working at all, or cutting off without warning, they may replace it under warranty. Phone support or the Genius Bar should be able to tell you what your options are.

  • it depends. go to your local apple store and ask a "Genius" if your situation warrants replacement under warranty.
