Apple blames air for iPhone 6S's narcolepsy

Georgia ReedDec 04, 2016

Apple Insider, meanwhile, reports Apple insists the shut down problem is limited to a small number of devices manufactured in September and October 2015.

However, before you take your iPhone 6s to an Apple authorized service provider for battery replacement, we recommend you to take a complete backup of your data using iTunes, turn off the Find my iPhone security feature and perform a factory reset. The company is now offering free battery replacements for affected iPhone 6s models. The company says a battery component was exposed to ambient air for too long a period, leading it to degrade faster than it should.

"It's important to note, this is not a safety issue", Apple explains in its statement, clearly trying to make sure that this recall doesn't lead to a new global craze over exploding batteries, as it was the case with rival Samsung. Its iPhones are built to automatically shut down under certain conditions, such as extremely cold temperature, to protect the device's electronics.

It's becoming such a big problem that the China Consumers Association (CCA) has issued a formal warning to Apple, demanding action from the company.

Syrian troops push into rebel-held east Aleppo
A deal was reached earlier this month in the rebel-held suburb for fighters to leave. "There will be an attempt to hold fast". Syria's former economic capital and industrial hub lies at a strategic commercial crossroads near the border with Turkey.

Thankfully, Apple has remedied this problem by creating a new online verification page.

If your iPhone 6s will be eligible for the free replacement, you will come to know immediately after following the above process. Hence, it seems like Apple is yet to reveal the full extent to which its previous-generation smartphone devices have been inflicted with such a devastating battery issue.

iPhone 6S users worrying that their device is suffering from poor battery life will now be able to get an official verdict from Apple.

"We have been seeing a lot of customers for this particular issue, and I have personally dealt with the issue on not just the 6S, but the 6S Plus, which is not part of the program", according to one Apple Store manager in another part of the US.

The China Consumers Association has asked Apple to investigate the other claims.

Simply visit this website and submit your iPhone's serial number. Reports have stated that "The four main suppliers for the said OLD panels will not have sufficient production capacity to produce screens for every new iPhone for next year, along with several constraints continuing into 2018".
