Apple has opened a free repair program for iPhone 6s models affected by a power issue. In
a new post on its website the company said iPhone 6s and 6s Plus units manufactured between October 2018 and August 2019 could be affected.
“Apple has determined that certain iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus devices may not power on due to a component that may fail”, the page reads, before you can then enter
your phone’s serial number into a field to check if you are eligible for a repair.
Repairs can be arranged from Apple Authorised Service Providers, an appointment at an Apple Store or via courier. If you’ve already paid to repair this issue, you can contact Apple to discuss a refund for the cost.
Apple has got good at admitting manufacturing flaws in its devices of late and it’s good to see the company fixing phones that were made in such a small window. It also shows the market longevity of its iPhones that it was still manufacturing the iPhone 6s in August 2019; the iPhone 6s was launched in September 2015.
