Apple iPhone is one of the best smartphones in the market. However, this does not mean that iPhone is perfect. Apple has today announced that the Company will replace the faulty batteries on iPhone 6s free of charge following a number of reports of iPhone 6s models unexpectedly shutting down.
According to Apple, very small number of iPhone 6s have been touched by the battery issue, but the Company will swap in a new battery for free for all the affected smartphones. Apple also says that users with affected iPhone 6s can contact an authorized service provider or nearby App Store to get the new batteries.
Apple claims that the battery issue users are facing with their iPhone 6s models is not a safety matter and only affects a limited number of iPhone 6s models manufactured between September and October 2015. Besides, Apple is committed to generating refunds for those who have paid to replace their batteries to fix the issue.
The battery-replacement program came just days after Apple announced a new repair program for the iPhone 6s Plus with touch-screen issues for 149 USD. This is not the first time Apple have faced issues with the iPhone 6S. Earlier this year, Cupertino-based company received reports of its iPhone 6s not restarting until it is had been plugged in.
Apple is not the first smartphone maker having to deal with battery issues this year. Apple’s main rival, Samsung has permanently ceased production of its Galaxy Note 7 following a number of reports of the devices exploding and catching fire. Despite the fact that this is not the same case for Apple, customers have their own reasons to worry about.
Apple is believed to be winning the intense fight with Samsung this year. The new Jet Black iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus sold out during pre-order period. Apple also released Apple Watch Series 2 and new MacBook Pro with Touch Bar.
