Just wondering, would Apple replace my 7+ battery for $30 even if the capacity is around 91%? I may want to take advantage of the cheaper rate since I plan to pass down my 7+. Thanks.

There's no capacity requirement this year under the discounted battery replacement program.

They replaced my 6S+ battery this week and capacity was 89% with just 177 charge cycles. They broke the camera and gave me a refurb replacement with a 90 day warranty.
As soon as I saw the tech walking toward me with a box,I knew I was getting a replacement. He was apologetic and asked if needed help transferring things and I said I was fine and thanks.

Took my son's SE in for the cheap battery replacement about 5 months ago. It did not seem to perform any better than the old battery. He recently told me it would not turn on, and when I took a look at it, the battery had obviously expanded, pushing the display up from the frame in the middle.

Seems like we got a defective replacement battery. Took it to Apple, new phone (refurb) within 10 minutes. Great customer service, as I have always experienced.

I just had two battery replacements as I’ll be away from any Apple stores for a few months. The 6S was at 86%, the 8 at 88%. No problem other than the WiFi antenna broke on my 8 which meant I received a “new” phone.
