Apple iPhone 6S Battery Are Safe But Needs To Be Replaced
It is now clear that there are real problems with some iPhone 6S batteries. Some Apple iPhone 6S users are reporting that their smartphones are shutting down without any warning and even with a charge. The company confirmed that the iPhones batteries are safe even there should be replaced.
Apple iPhone 6S Battery Replacement
According to CNBC, Apple has offered replacement batteries to qualifying iPhone 6S owners after a small number began to shut down unexpectedly. But as of now, there seems to be no risk of repeating the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 debacle, where phones were recalled on the risk of catching fire.
The explanation is this: the battery component used in September and October 2015 iPhone 6S units was exposed to air for longer than usual. That is why it is triggering a feature that causes the iPhone to shut down automatically under certain conditions, such as extreme cold. Apple said the battery was “exposed to controlled ambient air longer than it should have been before being assembled into battery packs.”
Apple had set up a page where users could find out more details about the battery replacement program, and it also has a tool to check if your phone qualifies as reported by Indian Express. The problem was first reported by users in China, and affects phones manufactured between September and October 2015.
Apple iPhone 6S Battery Are Safe
There are no safety issues involved in Apple's battery replacement program, according to a statement on the company's China website. While Apple has said the battery issues only affect a small number of iPhone 6S users, others have also complained. There have also been isolated reports of fires connected to iPhones, although there's no evidence these incidents are widespread.
"We looked for any other factors that could cause an iPhone to shut down unexpectedly. After intensive investigations, no new factors have been identified," Apple said. "We will continue to monitor and analyze customer reports."
