Apple might soon announce an iPhone 6 battery replacement program. The possible move would come just weeks after Apple announced a similar plan for the iPhone 6s, according to Japanese site Macotakara.
On Dec. 1, Apple noted that a select number of iPhone 6s units manufactured between September and October 2015 were affected by a random shutdown issue. They explained that some battery components for these units were exposed to the air for too long before assembly. To resolve this issue, the company offered free battery replacements.
The iPhone 6 battery rumor doesn’t mention when the affected units were manufactured or when this possible program might begin.Apple has also not commented on the story.
First introduced in 2014, the iPhone 6/6 Plus were discontinued two years later when the iPhone 7/7 Plus was announced.
We’ll continue to follow this story. In the meantime, if you’re an iPhone 6s owner, be sure to visit Apple’s special battery replacement web page to see whether your handset qualifies for a battery replacement.
