Apple delays iPhone 6 Plus battery change due to lack of supply

If you are thinking about making the battery change of your iPhone 6 Plus due to the replacement program activated by Apple, you will have to wait more than two months to carry out the repair for 29 euros.

These are the orders that the workers of the company’s stores are receiving, which are delaying the appointment for the repair until the end of March and the beginning of April. The reason, the shortage in the supply of batteries.

Lack of transparency with the slowdown of iPhones, collective lawsuits across the world for the same reason, accusation of obsolescence scheduled in France, explosion of batteries in the Apple Store and; Now, lack of supply of those batteries for one of their models.

Since it was discovered that the firm Cupertino reduces the performance of their iPhones according to the capacity and health of the battery, the rest of events and consequences have continued to hit the company in a negative way.

That added to another front more worrying still as it is the fact that your iPhone X does not finish curdle. In this sense, sales are estimated below the sum of the role played by the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.

The battery change of the iPhone 6 Plus, delayed until April

By way of redress, Apple began earlier this year a battery replacement program for iPhones affected by the battery gate low performance when the battery loses properties. We refer to all models from iPhone 6 to iPhone 7. A battery replacement for the amount of 29 euros, much lower than the usual 89 euros.

This program has already started, but will not have the same effect for all users. And is that, as MacRumors has spread, those interested in changing the battery of the iPhone 6 Plus will have to wait at least until the end of March or early April.

All the news about Apple

Lack of supply

The reason that caused the delay in the change of battery of the iPhone 6 Plus is none other than the lack of stock of this battery in particular. An event that has caught again by surprise the Cupertino.

A more than probable lack of foresight, possibly due to the need to make a quick decision to appease the spirits of those affected by the slowdown of iPhones.

So, if you were interested in using Apple’s atypical repair program and have an iPhone 6 Plus, it may be worth waiting a few months for the battery stock to stabilize for this model. After all, the Americans plan to maintain the promotional price of the repair until December 31, 2018.

Otherwise, you can always change it, with the risk that this entails.
