Previously, Apple Store Genius Bars and Apple Authorized Service Providers were told to deny repairs for third-party batteries. Now, if the repair isn’t related to the battery your iPhone can get official Apple repairs.

When a repair happens the battery needs to be drained to less than 60% charge.

This is at their discretion and isn’t guaranteed.
