    Take it to an Apple Store and ask them.

    Which is what I would have expected them to say after you've opened it.

    Why not go straight to them to begin with ?

    Out of warranty replacement or insurance claim T&C applicable woukd have been my options.

    Sounds like your screwed really. DIY repairs are never a good idea. The battery you bought won't have been genuine and is probably of poor quality. The charging port will either be 3rd party or a genuine part from a used phone.

    You should have gone to the Apple Store in the first place and you wouldn't have had all these problems. The only option you realistically have now is to keep trying to fix it yourself (most likely not cost effective) or you could go to a 3rd party repair shop to see if they can do anything.

    At this point, I think you're out of luck, given that you tried to repair yourself instead of taking it to them.

    If Apple won't repair it, google some Phone repair stores in your location.
