If your battery has a manufacturing defect and it's covered by the Apple Limited Warranty or consumer law, we'll service it at no additional cost. Our warranty doesn’t cover batteries that wear down from normal use. 

If your iPad holds 80 percent or less of its original battery capacity and it’s covered by AppleCare+, you can get iPad battery service for no additional charge. If your iPad isn't covered, we can service or replace it for a fee.

We might need to test your product to find the cause of your battery issue.
