Bug Fixing Reduces Shutdowns

Apple has been working to fix the bug that plagued the iPhone 6 and 6S. The improvements of the unexpected shutdowns show small percentage after iOS 10.2.1 fixed it.

Solutions For The Unexpected Shutdowns

According to 9To5 Mac, Apple reveals that the unexpected shutdowns are not one of the safety issues. Apple is trying its best to find possible solutions to fix the problem, which currently Apple is including power management system in iOS 10.2.1.

Apple integrates the new feature that allows the phone to simply restart when users experience unexpected shutdowns. iPhone 6 users should connect the smartphone to a power adapter while the rebooting operation is in the process.

The primary solution to the unexpected shutdown is that Apple will soon add an option, which displays the battery information found under the "Battery Settings." It will help to diagnose the battery issues that will lead to random shutdowns. Apple Insider wrote that the partial solution is to extend the lifecycle of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6S on its iOS.

Extending Battery Lifespan

Apple revealed on its official website that the tech giant would soon maximize the battery life span of its products. The American company stated that the battery lifespan is the amount of time that the battery lasts until it needed to be replaced. This latest news leads to the idea that Apple is aiming to replace all the worn out batteries.
