Short Supplies Means Apple Can’t Replace Old iPhone 6 Plus Batteries

Documents sent to Apple stores and certified re-sellers have revealed Apple will not replace old iPhone 6 Plus batteries due to a lack of supplies until late March, early April.

The documents obtained by MacRumors, says there is a wait for close to two weeks for iPhone 6 and 6s Plus battery replacements. The documents also notes batteries for other models such as the iPhone 6s, iPhone 7 and 7 Plus are expected to be available without extended delays in most countries.

Apple has been in hot water recently after it confessed to slowing down its older devices┬áto preserve the older batteries and with hopes consumers would upgrade to a newer model. The company then announced it would be discounting the sale of batteries worldwide with prices in Australia dropping from $119 to $39 – a whopping $80 discount.

A source spoke to MacRumors saying third-party re-sellers are able to set their own prices for out-of-warranty parts and repairs meaning consumers could be paying more than $39 for a new battery.
