Apple offers free battery replacement for iPhone 6s with shutdown issue


This year is turning out to be a real bad one for the batteries. Apple is dealing with the iPhone 6s battery issue which shuts the phone randomly. The Wall Street Journal reports that Apple is aware of the issue and is providing free battery replacement for those with a troubled iPhone 6s unit.

Apple’s iPhone 6s program is for the folks whose devices suffer from an unexpected shutdown. The company clarifies it is not a safe issue and affects only a select range of units manufactured between September and October 2015.

In case of Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7, initially a particular batch of batteries were suspected to cause explosion. But when the replacement units also started blasting and emitting smoke, Samsung decided to discontinue the Galaxy Note 7, as reported by Gear.
