Apple Confirms $29 iPhone Replacement Batteries Now Available Without Delay
If you’ve been waiting to get your hands on a new iPhone battery as part of the much talked about replacement program, then you may not have to wait as long as you could have after Apple confirmed that “service inventory” of all iPhone batteries is now available “without delay.”
This comes after months of Apple’s batteries being on back order, with those going into Apple Stores or Apple Authorized Service Providers being told that they face a wait of weeks before their new battery will be available.
The news that stocks are now in a much better place was disseminated to stores and service providers via a note sent out on April 27th, with MacRumors getting its hands on the document.
While the document was likely sent to stores worldwide, it’s worth noting that stocks could still be in limited supply at some locations, so depending on where you visit, you may still be told that there will be a waiting time before your new battery can be installed.
The volume of batteries replaced by Apple appears to have taken some time for the company to get to grips with, although this new document does suggest that Apple is starting to get a handle on things.
A replacement battery would rectify this issue, hence the deal offered to owners. If you are the owner of an iPhone 6 or newer, then you have until the end of the year to claim your discounted battery.
