What Really Causes The Problem On iPhone 6 Plus Devices?
Back in October, the Business Insider was already aware of the issues encountered by iPhone 6 Plus users. Most of the affected people were actually frustrated on Apple's $329 service charge. This is despite the fact that the company had been aware of the flaw in some iPhone 6 Plus devices.
In addition, the tech company still insists that the problem is not caused by an engineering defect. Apparently, there might be an issue with an internal part of the phone. The flickering display shows a grey bar at the top. Eventually, the screen would be unresponsive to touch.
It was recently reported that a consumer protection group in China is investigating the incidents of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6S randomly shutting down. Apple was asked to identify the exact problem and resolve it.
