    Picked up a cheap second hand iPhone 7 today. It has 512 charge cycles and 89% health. Should I replace the battery and is replacing the battery a complicated job on the 7? I have done the 5S and 6S before

    How long will you keep it? If a year or more, yes. If not, no.

    Cheap to replace the battery before the year ends...

    Due an upgrade March time, this was just to tie me over until then

    Then I wouldn't. But it is only $29, so no big deal either way.

    I would, when you go to sell it, people will appreciate a new battery and pay a bit more. If you’re just trading it in, then it really doesn’t matter.
