2-hour iPhone battery change at iService Siam

Bloated battery in need of replacement, we made a trip to iService Siam at Siam Square One on a Saturday morning for bf’s iPhone7. We were their first customer of the day – service was quick as we were in and out within 10 minutes. Before handing over his phone, bf was asked to log in to Apple ID. I thought that is rather weird and looked it up. It seems that for some repairs, Apple ID password is required to erase device and turn off Find My iPhone. This policy is in force to prevent unauthorized persons from servicing our device without our knowledge.

We were told that it will take 2 hours, and it was ready when we return 3 hours later. Payment is at collection time and bf handed over payment of 1,600 baht, and there is a 90 days warranty included.

IPhone screen replacement can also be done within the same day for iPhone 6s or newer model! I honestly thought that the turnaround time is superb and was impressed! I was toying with changing niece’s cracked iPhone6s’s screen, but 4,900 baht is too much for such an old model.

There are mixed Google reviews here of iService Siam .. ours is a simple iPhone battery change, and we do recommend based on service and quick turnaround time.

Update July 2022

We went to iService Siam to get bf’s ipad battery to be replaced, but Apple’s battery test says the battery is still good and refused to replace.

Travel opens up a whole new world, which is cliche but true. I am a strong advocate for independent and solo travel. I was born and raised in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia but now live in Bangkok, Thailand, resulted from a chance encounter in 2009 with my why-are-you-Thai bf. I am now split between two countries. One country for my bf, another for the family, for the occasional weekend together.
