  Apple will replace your iPhone battery even if it passes tests Apple now has $29 iPhone battery replacements available as an apology for its approach to handset slowdowns. Some iPhone owners who jumped on the replacement program during its initial weekend had been denied fresh batteries, since their power packs were otherwise healthy. They shouldn't have a problem throughout the rest of the discount period, which ends in December.

The same is true for the iPhone X 's Do Not Disturb mode . Instead of having a half-moon in the status bar as other iPhones do , the DND indicator is nowhere to be found on the main screen when enabled.

How can you tell if the person who isn't picking up your calls or answering your texts is using Do Not Disturb mode on their iPhone ? We tested this feature by getting a colleague to turn on Do Not Disturb then calling and texting them.

With the iPhone X and its notch taking up a good portion of the status bar along the top of the display, Apple had to move some indicators to Control Center.

For example, you can no longer display the battery percentage on the iPhone X's status bar. Instead, you need to swipe down from the top of the screen to view Control Center to check the current battery percentage.

You'll need to swipe down from the top right corner of the screen, where Control Center is activated, and view the DND shortcut button to see if it's enabled. If the icon is purple, DND is turned on. Otherwise, DND is disabled and you should receive alerts as you normally do.

Recently I enabled DND on my iPhone X when watching a movie, only to forget it was turned on after I left. It wasn't until a few hours later after missed calls and messages that I realized it was still turned on, despite using my phone several times.
