Apple has restocked batteries for mid 2012 and early 2013 MacBooks

Got a 15" MacBook Pro from 2012 in need of repairs ASAP? Thankfully, after more than a year of shortages, Apple has restocked its inventory of top cases for mid 2012 and early 2013 models with batteries glued in.

According to a report by Joe Rossignol for MacRumors, Apple has finally replenished its top case assemblies with accompanying glued-in batteries for mid 2012 and early 2013 MacBook Pros with Retina display. This is following over a year of shortages during which Apple offered "free, delayed repairs" to customers — a service that the company is discontinuing now that the part is widely available again, Rossignol noted.


  Instead [of the free, delayed repairs], Apple has resumed charging its standard out-of-warranty fee for all 15-inch MacBook Pro battery replacements, which is $199 in the United States. The fee is waived if the notebook is covered by an AppleCare+ plan.


The shortage of the top cases for these models came to light all the way back in March 2017...
