I was in the apple store the other day picking up a repaired watch when i asked a store employee to make an appointment to get my wife iPhone 6plus battery replaced under the newly announced program. I confirmed it has started earlier than they initially advertised and he booked her in.
Three hour round trip today to the store was made by my wife only to be told the phone is eligible but they don’t have batteries available until March! March! I have no idea why the apple store employee didn’t point that out beforehand when making the appointment.
I wonder, do you think they have no batteries available or just none for the replacement program?
Also anyone know of any decent repairers on the Gold Coast that can replace the battery with one that does the proper reporting of the cycle? I hear some cheap batteries won’t report cycles and the software won’t speed back up as a result. Anyone had any experience with this?
