MacRumors reports today that an internal document that was sent to Apple Stores and Apple Authorised Service Providers and seen by MacRumors states that iPhone 6 Plus replacement batteries are in scarce supply and therefore will not be available to customers until late March/early April in the US and other territories.
It seems like the iPhone 6 Plus is the most badly affected by the stock shortage, as the document says that there is a shorter wait of around 2 weeks for replacement batteries for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s Plus, and that there is no delay for battery replacements for iPhone 6s, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, and iPhone SE.
Apple also said in the memo that lead times for available batteries will vary in certain territories such as the Middle East, Africa, Latin America, Russia, and Turkey.
Currently Apple is running a program where you can replace any iPhone 6 or later units for a reduced price of $29.
