Apple is replacing the batteries in ‘a very small number of’ iPhone 6s units

Following the arrival of its new, less expensive ‘Touch Disease’ repair program, Apple has just announced another new repair initiative.

According to the company, “a very smaller number” of its iPhone 6s units are shutting down randomly due to faulty batteries. Specifically, the issue relates to iPhone 6s units manufactured between September and October 2015. The company notes that the batteries, while unreliable, do not pose a safety risk.

If the iPhone 6s you own was manufactured between those dates, all you need to do is head to your local Apple or Authorized service provider to get your phone’s serial number checked. Apple adds it will refund any customers who already paid for a battery replacement out of pocket.
