Apple has run out of battery replacements for the iPhone 6 Plus and won't get more until late March or April, reports MacRumors. The company recently launched a $29 battery replacement program after admitting that it been secretly slowing down devices as their batteries aged.

Apple says iPhone 6 Plus replacement batteries are in short supply and won't be available until late March to early April in the United States and other regions, according to an internal document distributed to Apple Stores and Apple Authorized Service Providers this week and later obtained by MacRumors.

Wait times for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s Plus replacements are at around two weeks. Replacement batteries for other devices such as the iPhone 6s, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus and iPhone SE are available 'without extended delays' in most countries.

If you need a replacement iPhone 6 Plus battery immediately, you can purchase one for $13.49; however, you'll need to perform the replacement yourself. We've also posted links to replacement batteries for each iPhone below for those who want the performance boost of a new battery but can't have Apple perform the replacement (ie jailbreakers or those not near an Apple Store).

Apple only slows down phones with degraded batteries to keep them working as best as they can without shutting off, many people have posted Geekbench scores before and after getting a battery replacement and the scores are back to how they were when the iPhone was brand new once the battery is changed.

There is no performance boost from a battery. I see hundreds a day and there will only be a speed increase if it’s consumed or failing. Really wish incorrect information would stop spreading.

Performance boost from a battery or not, Apple has admittedly stated that it slows down performance when batteries degrade. Common sense is that for those who think they have degraded batteries, they will purchase a new battery, to get back the performance that Apple has decreased. More money for Apple either way.

I second that. Guess these iSheeps fall for Apple’s BS all the time.
