When Apple promised to replace old iPhone batteries for $29 after its slowdown debacle there was always going to be a queue for new parts. Well, for owners of the iPhone 6 Plus the queue will likely be a bit longer than expected. According to internal documents seen by MacRumors, Apple won’t have batteries in stock for the 2014 device until late March to early April.
Wait-times for replacement batteries have understandably fluctuated as Apple adapts to this unexpected increase in demand. When the $29 replacement offer was first made in December, the company said the batteries would be available in late January, before updating that timeframe later in the month to available “right away.”
