Can I get my AirPods replaced if broken?

Answered by Jason Smith

You can get your AirPods replaced if they are broken. Apple offers a replacement service for both individual AirPods and the Charging Case. Whether you’ve lost one AirPod or both, or if your Charging Case is damaged, you have the option to purchase a replacement.

If you have AppleCare+ for Headphones, you may be eligible for a discounted replacement fee. However, it’s important to note that AppleCare+ does not cover lost or stolen AirPods. So, if you’ve misplaced your AirPods or they have been stolen, you would not be able to get them replaced through AppleCare+.

To get a replacement AirPod or Charging Case, you can either visit an Apple Store or contact Apple Support. They will guide you through the process and provide you with the necessary information and options available to you.

The cost of a replacement will depend on several factors. If your AirPods or Charging Case are still covered under warranty, the replacement may be free of charge. However, if your warranty has expired or the damage is not covered by warranty, there will be a fee for the replacement.

Apple provides a chart detailing the replacement fees for different components. For example, as of the time of writing, the fee for replacing a single AirPod is $69, while the fee for replacing the Charging Case is $59. These fees are subject to change, so it’s always best to check with Apple or visit their website for the most up-to-date information.

When you purchase a replacement AirPod or Charging Case, you can expect to receive a brand new device. This means that you will not be receiving a refurbished or used unit, ensuring that you have a fresh and fully functional replacement.

Apple offers a convenient and straightforward replacement service for broken or damaged AirPods. Whether you need to replace a single AirPod or the Charging Case, you have the option to do so by contacting Apple Support or visiting an Apple Store. Just keep in mind that AppleCare+ does not cover lost or stolen AirPods, and there may be a replacement fee involved depending on your warranty status.
