Today, Apple posted on its Asian website that a few iPhone 6s units are randomly shutting down. Apple claims that the total numbers of affected devices small. Only a small range of handsets produced between September and October 2015 are faulty. Apple noted that they will offer free battery replacements for affected iPhone 6s devices.
iPhone 6s users around the world can bring their affected devices to nearby Apple retail store, where their device will be checked whether it was manufactured within the given time period or not. The battery of eligible devices will be replaced for free.
Last week, a consumer protection group in China, China Consumers Association, said that it has been receiving reports from iPhone 6s owners that their phones are randomly shutting down.
Apple has released statement on this:
“Apple has determined that a very small number of iPhone 6s devices may unexpectedly shut down. This isn’t a safety issue and only affects devices within a limited serial number range that were manufactured in September and October 2015.”
