Apple obviously doesn’t want the iPhone 6s to go the way of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, so it’s obviously doing everything it can to curb any issues that may be found with the Smartphone battery.
Recent reports show that some users of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus have complained over the phone’s shutting off suddenly and for no reason. After being traced, it was reported by the tech and consumer electronics maker that the said batch was actually produced between September and October 2015, and it added that it is offering users of the faulty Smartphones a free battery replacement. Apple didn’t share any information on the cause of the said faults.
This statement and the plans are coming after the faults were discovered by a consumer watch group that had launched an investigation into the problem. In a statement released by the group, “a considerable number” of Chinese users reported that their iPhone 6 and 6 Plus devices were suddenly turning off even with plenty of battery life. It was also stated that the phones wouldn’t even turn back on after being plugged into chargers.
Consumers had complained of a similar problem on the iPhone earlier this year. The same iPhone 6 and 6 Plus had a software glitch that caused the battery icon to display more battery life than what’s actually left; the company quickly sent out an update to the operating system, and that had fixed the problem.
