If you have a damaged iPhone 6 Plus that is in need of repair and qualifies for a whole-device replacement, it looks like Apple may replace it with an iPhone 6s Plus due to battery supply shortage caused by the iPhone battery fiasco that led to $29 battery replacements.

Iphone 6 6S Plus Replacement • Apple To Replace Some Iphone 6 Plus Model With Iphone 6S Plus Due To Battery Supply Shortage

Realme Philippines

Apple document states that the “orders for whole unit service inventory of some iPhone 6 Plus models may be substituted to an iPhone 6s Plus.” As reported by MacRumors, Apple no longer manufactures the iPhone 6 Plus, so it likely has to restore its production lines to replenish its supply which would certainly take time. As for the reason, the company does not provide a specific interest for the potential switch, nor does it state which models are eligible.

The company may replace until at least the end of March, according to an internal document distributed to the Apple Authorized Service Providers.

To be replaced the whole device if it qualifies. What kind of statement is that? Iphone 6+ phones are 2 years old and to qualify for replacement, you must bought it not a year ago. Sino pa kaya ang bibili ng iphone 6 models kung may iphone 7 models na at wala ng iphone 6+ production? Para rin nilang sinabing hindi nila papalitan at bumili na lang ng iphone 8 models. Kung sa iphone 7 models nila in-offer yan, pwede pa.
